The combination of world-class technology combined with expert threat hunters is absolutely mandatory to see and stop today’s most sophisticated threats. CrowdStrike’s team of elite threat hunters are working 24/7, proactively searching for threats and functioning as an additional layer of protection to catch evolving stealthy and sophisticated attacks.

Competitive solutions that started with an on-premises, legacy architecture that is then deployed to a cloud are inadequate for scaling for protecting today’s enterprise. Purpose-built in the cloud with a single, lightweight-agent architecture, the CrowdStrike Falcon Platform provides customers unmatched scalability, superior protection and performance, reduced complexity and immediate time-to-value.

In comparative testing by leading, independent third parties, CrowdStrike’s automated protection and remediation has been proven to stop more than 99.7% of malware and ransomware attacks - while generating ZERO false positives that create a huge amount of work that can bog down investigations and lead to alerts being missed.

Immediate Value

CrowdStrike offers the ideal replacement for outdated legacy technology. Unlike legacy and infrastructure security solutions, the cloud-native CrowdStrike Falcon Platform delivers every feature and capability through a single agent which is deployed and managed from the cloud, protecting your users wherever they are: No scans, no reboots and no signatures.

CrowdStrike enables you to deploy tens of thousands of agents at once for immediate value, providing full, automated protection across critical areas of enterprise risk - endpoints and cloud workloads and identity.

We don’t have an antivirus solution that’s waiting on signatures to be developed and pushed out. What we’ve got is that we’re part of a larger collection of organizations that are running CrowdStrike, so any data that we see gets fed back into the system and someone else will benefit from that knowledge. And it’s all because it is cloud-based.

When we engaged CrowdStrike, it was a complete 180. Now we’ve found that partner that will get us back to a stable operating point.
