CrowdStrike Inc., (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced that CrowdStrike Falcon® was named winner of the Best Endpoint Detection and Response Product for the second year in a row in SE Labs’ 2021 Annual Report. As the world’s most tested next-gen Endpoint Protection solution, this prestigious recognition marks yet another third-party validation to the power of CrowdStrike Falcon – the only truly cloud-native, single-agent endpoint security platform on the market.
SE Labs prides itself on ‘testing like hackers’ to create real-world scenarios, with reporting based on the MITRE ATT&CK framework making it easier for organizations to identify which solutions are right for them. Earlier this week, CrowdStrike once again earned the highest AAA rating in the SE Labs Enterprise Endpoint Protection, Q3 2021 report, making it the 12th time that CrowdStrike has earned the AAA rating dating back to March 2018. Today’s additional recognition as the 2021 Winner of the Best Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution symbolizes excellence for CrowdStrike as the clear market leader for innovative and purposeful EDR technology.
“Rigorous testing and evaluation from independent groups like SE Labs are critically important in helping customers separate vendor claims from how technology actually functions in real-world scenarios. Testing like this provides a good comparison of existing solutions, but also exposes those vendors who won’t commit this type of independent analysis,” said Mike Sentonas, chief technology officer at CrowdStrike. “Our consistent recognition from SE Labs is yet another key validator of CrowdStrike extending its position as the foremost leader in endpoint and workload security,”.
“In today’s increasingly complex and remote-first digital world, frequent testing and the validation of solutions is critical for IT decision-makers who need guidance in the noisy security market. Not all solutions are created equal, and CrowdStrike continues to stand out as a clear market leader in the EDR space,” said Simon Edwards, chief executive officer at SE Labs. “We’ve been testing CrowdStrike since 2018, and the Falcon platform continues to shine through as a best-in-class EDR solution.”
The CrowdStrike Falcon platform was built as a transformative cloud-native solution to establish a new standard in security. CrowdStrike’s unique approach starts with its intelligent lightweight agent that enables frictionless deployment of the platform at scale. Falcon is the only technology that enables customers to rapidly adopt technology across any workload running on multiple endpoints.
The CrowdStrike Falcon platform spans 21 cloud modules to unify next-generation antivirus (NGAV), endpoint detection and response (EDR) and a 24/7 managed threat hunting and intelligence – all delivered via a single lightweight, intelligent, cloud-native agent.
