CrowdStrike Announces Launch of Endpoint Protection Complete

CrowdStrike brings to market an instant, turnkey endpoint protection solution.

Sunnyvale, CA – April 16, 2018 – CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced the launch of CrowdStrike Falcon® Endpoint Protection Complete™, a turnkey solution, combining the Falcon Endpoint Protection (EPP) technology with the skills and experience of the Falcon Endpoint Protection Team. Falcon Endpoint Protection Complete changes the game by making endpoint security powerful and easy for all organizations, regardless of their current security posture. This new solution further completes the CrowdStrike portfolio and enables CrowdStrike partners to offer a comprehensive gamut of endpoint security options to their customers.

The EPP Complete solution combines the effectiveness of the Falcon platform with the efficiency of a dedicated team of security professionals. It unifies the technology, people, processes and expertise to handle all aspects of endpoint security — from deployment, configuration and maintenance to monitoring, alert handling and remediation. CrowdStrike EPP Complete uniquely integrates powerful best-in-class prevention, detection and response with IT hygiene capabilities, coupled with the Falcon EPP team of security experts, to provide a powerful defense against the rapidly changing tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) used by adversaries. This scalable solution offers organizations of all sizes the highest level of endpoint security possible.

According to Gartner, “Many customers lacked the skill sets to leverage the emerging security technologies they had purchased, so offering MDR services was a way for product vendors to help customers utilize their technology fully”*

“With the launch of EPP Complete, CrowdStrike is demonstrating our continued industry leadership and commitment to delivering the most comprehensive and effective combination of technology, services and intelligence to stop breaches and help businesses stay focused on their work,” said George Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “We are enabling customers to solve challenges related to security staffing and resources by allowing them to multiply their capacity to manage and respond to alerts and to take full advantage of their technology investments.”

“Assessing a company’s business requirements first, and starting with an ‘inside-out’ view on risk, can identify and prioritize gaps in security program execution across tools and processes,” said Todd Weber, vice president of Partner Research and Strategy for Optiv. “Combining Optiv’s approach and expertise with CrowdStrike’s continued commitment to address modern threats helps organizations effectively assess and address current and future threats, so they can take appropriate action to maintain the proper risk posture.”

“With this latest launch, CrowdStrike continues to demonstrate its ability to offer a complete security solution of both technology and services to our customers,” said president Ikeda of Macnica Networks Corp. “As a security solution provider, it is vital to our continued success to be able to partner with cutting-edge organizations that can address customer needs in a multitude of markets to better secure critical data and infrastructure.”

“CrowdStrike continues to innovate its full suite of security technology and services offerings to give our joint customers the most comprehensive endpoint protection capabilities available,” says Steven Robb, president of the Solutions Group at LaSalle Solutions. “Our partnership with CrowdStrike provides our customers with solutions to optimize technology operations and secure critical data in the ever-changing IT landscape.”
