Independent testing validates CrowdStrike as the industry’s technology leader and continues its endpoint security market dominance
CrowdStrike (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, today announced the CrowdStrike Falcon platform received a AAA rating in SE Labs’ first-ever Enterprise Advanced Security Ransomware test. The CrowdStrike Falcon platform detected and blocked 100% of ransomware files during testing, which involved both direct attacks with 270 ransomware variations and deep attack tactics with 10 sophisticated attacks mimicking the observed tactics of cyber criminals. The CrowdStrike Falcon platform also achieved 100% protection accuracy and 100% legitimacy accuracy with zero false positives.
According to the 2022 CrowdStrike Global Threat Report, there was an 82% increase in ransomware-related data leaks year-over-year, making the comprehensive protection offered by CrowdStrike more important than ever. The CrowdStrike Falcon platform ingests and analyzes trillions of events in real time per day, making it one of the industry’s most advanced sources of truth for security insight and adversary intelligence. Machine learning-powered analytics allow customers to gain more intelligence to detect, prevent, predict and mitigate advanced attacks and zero-day exploits that leverage trusted processes.
“CrowdStrike Falcon performed exceptionally well, providing complete detection and protection coverage against all direct ransomware attacks,” said Simon Edwards, chief executive officer at SE Labs. “It also provided thorough insight into the full network breaches that concluded with ransomware deployments. There were no false positive results. An excellent result in an extremely challenging test.”
“Real world testing is incredibly important, especially when defending organizations against ransomware and it doesn’t get any better than 100% ransomware protection accuracy rating with zero false positives,” said Michael Sentonas, chief technology officer at CrowdStrike. “This achievement validates the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform in successfully stopping breaches and protecting endpoints via a single, lightweight agent that uses powerful machine learning capabilities.”
CrowdStrike continues to set the industry standard for transparency and visibility into its technology by participating in independent tests from leading third-party organizations.
