CrowdStrike Named a Strong Performer by Forrester in “The Forrester Wave: Endpoint Security”

CrowdStrike, the leader in cloud-delivered next-generation endpoint protection, today announced that Forrester has named CrowdStrike a ‘strong performer’ in their report “The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security, Q4 2016,” a comprehensive overview of the endpoint protection vendor landscape. According to Forrester, the CrowdStrike Falcon ™ platform can now be used as a standalone replacement for anti-malware in certain environments. In addition, customers report a high level of satisfaction with CrowdStrike’s ability to prevent and detect threats to their environment, with a very low impact on endpoint user experience.

Among the highlighted strengths are CrowdStrike Falcon’s perfect scoring on attack detection and effectiveness, threat intelligence, and no end-user impact, along with the technology’s fully cloud-based infrastructure. Additionally, Forrester recognized CrowdStrike for successfully delivering on a number of prevention capabilities and enterprise features, as well as the company’s go-to market strategy.

“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,” said Roland Cloutier, staff vice president and chief security officer at ADP. “ We always look for highly effective solutions that align to our enterprise security ecosystem and cyber defense strategy. CrowdStrike exceeded our expectations. They enabled ADP’s Cyber and IT organizations to consistently manage and better protect our datacenter platforms around the globe while also leveraging our existing investments and resources through innovative technology and advanced API capabilities.”

“This report is another great validation for the unique and compelling approach we’ve taken to change the way organizations around the world protect their endpoints,” said George Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “As highlighted by Forrester, CrowdStrike’s robust technology roadmap has allowed us to deliver a full endpoint protection platform, capable of replacing legacy antivirus solutions. Additionally, CrowdStrike has reinvented how endpoint security is delivered with its industry-leading native cloud architecture. We are the first and only company to provide a complete end-to-end solution that unifies next-gen AV with EDR and managed hunting -- all via a single lightweight agent.”

As part of its next-generation endpoint protection technology, CrowdStrike uses powerful signatureless machine learning algorithms and Indicators-of-Attack (IoA) based threat prevention to identify and block known and unknown threats. In addition, CrowdStrike Falcon provides unrivalled visibility within its endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution. As part of the company’s enterprise technology roadmap, CrowdStrike is actively developing and releasing numerous open APIs to allow for seamless integration with existing architectures and fast deployments, efficacy and scalability.
