Backed by a slew of notable investors, CrowdStrike is on a mission to prevent data breaches in global companies by deploying a next-generation endpoint protection technology in the form of a single integrated cloud-based solution
Dmitri Alperovich, George Kurtz and Gregg Marston founded California-based CrowdStrike in 2011. The company tackles a fundamental problem; sophisticated attacks cannot be solved with existing malware defenses. Hence, it developed a new platform, Falcon, which prevents breaches by detecting all kinds of attacks, providing a five-second visibility across all current and past endpoint activity, thus reducing cost and complexity for customers. In addition, the company’s Threat Graph connects with the cloud and analyses data immediately from millions of endpoints across a global crowd sourced community. This analysis helps in the timely detection and prevention of attacks based on the company’s patented pattern recognition technology.
CrowdStrike has so far raised US $281 million in funding across five rounds, and its customers include companies like Telstra, Shutterstock, Cardinal Innovations Healthcare and more.
