CrowdStrike Falcon Protects the Public Sector

Public Sector: Over-Attacked and Under-Protected

The 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) showed that the public sector is one of the top three most exploited sectors in the United States, with more than 300 reported cyber breaches in 2017 alone. To ensure better cybersecurity for these organizations, Executive Order 13800 mandates that public sector enterprises must "build and maintain a modern, secure, and more resilient" I.T. architecture.

Public Sector enterprises need a solution that protects against all cyber threats - simple and sophisticated. CrowdStrike Falcon® fulfills this by going beyond traditional antivirus (AV) to provide complete endpoint protection for public sector enterprises.

Falcon on GovCloud is FedRAMP authorized, ensuring continuous compliance with the most stringent cybersecurity regulatory requirements without hindering end-user productivity — all through one, end-to-end solution.
