Crowdstrike: Cloud-Delivered Endpoint Protection [product overview]

Introduction

Crowdstrike Endpoint Protection is a cloud-based solution that provides protection for devices such as computers and laptops. It was recently awarded “Highest IN Execution & Furthest in Vision” in the “Visionaries Quadrant” of the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant For Endpoint Protection Platforms. Its success is due to the key performance features that it has been developed with, including a next-generation antivirus, endpoint detection and response and managed threat hunting.

These core elements allow Crowdstrike to deliver high-performance protection against all attack types, from both malware and malware-free instances of threats. It can provide heightened visibility of your network and surrounding infrastructure, including five-second visibility of incoming threats across all endpoint nodes on the network. Crowdstrike has a dedicated team that works around the clock to help identify attacks and stop breaches.   

All of these features create a SaaS offering that protects your endpoints from threats that are both known and still surfacing. Having human based monitoring and threat assessment capabilities gives Crowdstrike an advantage over the threats that they are protecting your network from, as they can adapt and change their response according to the way that the threat evolves over time.  

All of Crowdstrike’s Endpoint Protection features can be summarized as:

 

  • SaaS-delivered  
  • Uses a lightweight agent
  • Developed from scratch
  • Offers users real-time visibility
  • Threat intelligence
  • Streamlined threat defense
