"Preventing the most sophisticated attacks, this is where CrowdStrike shines. It's not just being able to detect, but it's what do we do about it when we do detect some kind of anomalous activity. CrowdStrike is right every time."



"By putting all the computing power it normally takes to analyze security data up into the cloud, CrowdStrike can correlate data across multiple clients to discover emerging threats and build protections against them almost instantly. That's huge for us. Falcon's ability to harness the power of the crowd and of the cloud to protect organizations is tremendous."

3 Reasons WhyCustomers Choose CrowdStrike Over CARBON BLACK


Broader Prevention Capabilities

The Falcon platform combines machine learning, artificial intelligence, proactive threat hunting, and behavioral analytics to protect against the entire threat lifecycle.

Built in the cloud, the Falcon Platform detects and prevents known and unknown threats from ransomware and malware, to zero day exploits. CrowdStrike goes beyond signature-based attacks and leverages threat intelligence to provide the context needed to pivot to a proactive security posture to stop breaches.

Broader Prevention Capabilities

Silences the Noise, Speeds Up Investigations

CrowdStrike provides maximum effectiveness by harnessing the power of big data and artificial intelligence to reduce the frequency of incidents and time to remediation. Utilizing Falcon to identify and stop sophisticated attackers can decrease dependency on IR consulting and improve business availability long term.

Additionally, CrowdStrike’s team of elite threat hunters work 24/7, proactively searching for stealthy threats that other solutions miss.

Broader Prevention Capabilities

One Vendor, One Platform, One Agent

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.

One thing we appreciated with CrowdStrike is a transparent flow of data back and forth; we don’t feel we are alone. We have folks we can call if we get in trouble. We cannot be everywhere at all times and see everything, so having a business partner like CrowdStrike help us through this stuff is incredibly important.
