The CrowdStrike Falcon platform

06 October 2023

The CrowdStrike Falcon platform is purpose-built to stop breaches via a unified set of cloud-delivered technologies that prevent all types of attacks.

CrowdStrike Falcon responds to today’s challenges with a powerful yet lightweight solution that unifies next-generation antivirus (NGAV), endpoint detection and response (EDR), cyber threat intelligence, managed threat hunting capabilities and security hygiene — contained in a tiny, single, lightweight sensor that is cloud-managed and delivered.

The platform has revolutionised endpoint security by being the first and only solution to unify next-generation antivirus, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and a 24/7 threat hunting service — all delivered via a single lightweight agent. Using its purpose-built cloud native architecture, CrowdStrike collects and analyses more than 30 billion endpoint events per day from millions of sensors deployed across 176 countries. The unique benefits of this unified and lightweight approach include immediate time-to-value, better performance, reduced cost and complexity, and better protection that goes beyond detecting malware to stop breaches before they occur. These capabilities are based on a unique combination of prevention technologies such as machine learning, indicators of attack (IOA), exploit blocking, unparalleled real-time visibility, and 24×7 managed hunting to discover and track even the stealthiest attackers before they do damage.
