CrowdStrike Inc., a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, was selected by Frost & Sullivan as the 2021 Asia-Pacific Endpoint Security Company of the Year. This is the second analyst acknowledgement for CrowdStrike in APAC in quick succession after being recognised by Gartner, Inc. as a ‘Customers’ Choice’ in the 2021 Gartner Peer Insights™ ‘Voice of the Customer’: Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) report.
Fabio Fratucello, chief technology officer for Asia Pacific and Japan at CrowdStrike, Commented, “Endpoint security is a cornerstone of any mature cybersecurity framework. When companies deploy legacy solutions designed to catch and remediate malware or next generation point products that are not effective at stopping attacks and are too complex to deploy and use, these solutions are not fit for purpose against modern adversaries. They simply don’t keep users safe,” “As more systems move towards cloud-based environments, this shift requires a single platform that lowers costs, limits data complexity, and mitigates multiple software use and that is where CrowdStrike Falcon wins. This recognition is testament to the focus and vision CrowdStrike has in the Asia Pacific region which is a key pillar in the company’s overall growth strategy.”
“CrowdStrike focuses on the user experience, and, because of Falcon’s advanced AI capabilities, the company services businesses of all sizes,” said Steven Lopez, best practices research analyst for Frost & Sullivan. “CrowdStrike’s growing customer base shows promising customer retention rates thanks to its visionary innovation and customer-centric approach.”
The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals, who purchase, implement and/or use the CrowdStrike Falcon platform. The Gartner Peer Insights methodology collects data to help clients with a synthesis of which vendor products are the most highly rated by customers for EPP solutions. Vendors recognized as a Customers’ Choice must have 50 or more approved ratings and an average overall rating of 4.5 stars or greater. In addition to providing an overall score, Gartner Peer Insights allows customers and prospects to pivot by company size, vertical, geography, date and reviewer role.
