IDC Endpoint MarketScape Names CrowdStrike® a "Leader"

IDC MarketScape: Endpoint Specialized Threat Analysis and Protection 2017

In positioning CrowdStrike as a leader, IDC stated that the CrowdStrike Falcon platform “stands above competitive offerings by providing extremely robust prevention capabilities and a highly navigable management console that should be appealing to incident responders.” This recognition by IDC, a leading global analysis and research group, offers further validation of the CrowdStrike Falcon revolutionary approach, the only platform to combine next-generation AV, endpoint detection and response (EDR) and managed threat hunting all delivered via a single lightweight agent.

Here is IDC feedback about the CrowdStrike Falcon platform — download the report to get all the details:

  • “The product can be deployed as next-generation antivirus and also be configured as a fully capable endpoint threat detection solution with strong detection, prevention, activity recording, historical search, and forensics capabilities.”
  • “One of CrowdStrike’s major differentiators is its ability to roll out the platform in days rather than months as with some other competitive solutions.”
  • “Organizations should get additional value from the optional 24×7 managed hunting service for proactive monitoring of the environment for suspicious activity.”
  • “Unlike other emerging endpoint security solutions, the CrowdStrike Falcon platform’s primary mission is to detect attack indicators in addition to detecting malware and preventing exploits.”
