"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."
BRIAN KELLY, CSO AT RACKSPACE
"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."
ERIK HART, CISO AT ZEBRA TECHNOLOGIES

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.
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.
One Vendor, One Platform, One Agent
Eliminate on-premise infrastructure and consolidate security solutions with CrowdStrike’s Falcon Platform. Unlike the competition, the Falcon Platform allows for all products to be deployed through a single agent, managed from the cloud, with no reboots necessary.
Customers choose crowdstrike because our solution simplifies their security environment, reduces agent bloat, and cuts infrastructure costs.
Compare CrowdStrike to Carbon Black
CrowdStrike is the #1 Carbon Black Alternative
Don’t just take our word for it – see what our customers have to say:
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.
Security Analyst Ashland University
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.
CISO Pokémon Company International
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.
