2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP)

CrowdStrike Named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for EPP

Gartner defines an endpoint protection platform as “a solution deployed on endpoint devices to prevent file-based malware, to detect and block malicious activity from trusted and untrusted applications, and to provide the investigation and remediation capabilities needed to dynamically respond to security incidents and alerts.” 

CrowdStrike® is proud to be recognized as a “Leader” in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) in only its third year of being acknowledged. In addition to being positioned in the Leaders Quadrant, CrowdStrike is furthest for “completeness of vision,” which includes Gartner criteria such as innovation, marketing and product strategies, vertical industry and geographic strategies, as well as the validity of the business model as a whole.
