CrowdStrike was founded to fix a fundamental problem: The sophisticated attacks that were forcing the world's leading businesses into the headlines could not be solved with existing defences. Co-founders George Kurtz and Dmitri Alperovitch realized that a brand-new approach was needed - one that combines the most advanced endpoint protection with expert intelligence to pinpoint the adversaries perpetrating the attacks, not just their malware.
Our new platform, which we named Falcon, gives our customers the unique ability to detect and prevent never-before-seen attacks while they are still in progress - protecting organisations against threats their conventional defences could never see. It even gave rise to an entirely new science for detecting adversary activity.
For us, it's all about securing our customers' brand, data, and people. The hacking and the cyber-attacks we see in the media do have a lasting impact on people's lives. At CrowdStrike, we are extremely proud to provide this level of protection to a rapidly expanding base of customers around the world. It's a responsibility that we take very seriously, and it drives us in our hunt for new threats and innovative ways to stop them.
