Customers about Crowdstrike's Endpoint Protection Platform:

  • “The best endpoint security tool on the market… Having worked with CrowdStrike’s top three competitors I am blown away with the feature set available to me and my team, especially after such a negligible effort to deploy and tune… There is not a single-use case we have that is not covered by the Falcon platform, and the additional modules available to implement as we scale as a security program ensures we will be able to meet the needs of our business with just a single agent.” — Security Engineer in the Healthcare Industry

  • “The product gives us unprecedented visibility into attacks, a large library of IOCs and tools to investigate the incident. The performance is very fast and works whether client devices are in or out of the office, due to being cloud-based. The service has always been prompt, professional and effective.” — Head of EA and Governance in the Energy and Utilities Industry

  • “The gold standard for next-generation AV. Falcon has provided us with a blend of tools that made the transition to adaptive security architecture possible.” — Manager Information Security in the Finance Industry
