ROLAND CLOUTIER, CSO AT ADP

"In my career, the deployment of CrowdStrike Falcon was perhaps the easiest global security technology rollout I've seen. By leveraging the technology's cloud architecture and CrowdStrike’s expertise, we were able to deploy with incredible speed and efficacy. We realized the value immediately."

BRIAN KELLY, CSO AT RACKSPACE

"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."

ERIK HART, CISO AT ZEBRA TECHNOLOGIES

"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."
