Funded in 2011, the company hired previous Federal Bureau of Investigation official Shawn Henry to lead CrowdStrike Services, focussing on proactive and incident response services. Currently, CrowdStrike presents a radical approach in order to prevent security breaches.

The cloud native eliminates any complex steps and facilitates deployment in order to reduce any operational costs. The software is AI powered, using the power provided by data and artificial intelligence to provide teams with clear visibility. The single agent also delivers all the tools required to prevent breaches, ensuring optimum effectiveness.

CrowdStrike is a fully managed service complete with 24/7 threat hunting from Falcon OverWatch which constantly detects threats as an additional form of protection, catching what may be overlooked by alternative solutions. Threat intelligence is also provided to ensure security posture.
