CrowdStrike is an advanced and holistic Endpoint Protection Platform. It offers businesses a full suite of granular security modules, ranging from anti-virus at the most basic level to an advanced Endpoint Detection and Response platform. It’s a strong platform for organizations with a large number of Endpoints to protect them against advanced virus threats, as well as physical threats like USBs loaded with malware or spyware. The threat detection and response capabilities are powerful, with integrated threat intelligence and real-time response capabilities so that you can directly access Endpoints under investigation and run the best responses. The management dashboard offers reports and continuous monitoring of Endpoint Activity all within one simplified lightweight agent.

This is also a scalable platform. It’s a cloud-based service, and CrowdStrike has focussed on making the platform as lightweight as possible so as not to impact on individual Endpoint device performance. This is an advanced threat protection platform. It’s well liked by customers for it’s ease of use and advanced threat protection capabilities. This is an advanced option, and so although it does offer basic anti-virus as a module, it may not be the best option for smaller companies looking for endpoint anti-virus. But for organizations looking for a full suite of Endpoint Anti-Virus, Detection and Response, and some powerful additional modules, this is a strong solution to consider.
