Gartner and Forrester position Crowdstrike leader in endpoint security

1 min. read


Crowdstrike's cloud-delivered Endpoint protection solutions have been named a leader by Forrester and leads the visionary quadrant in Gartner's 2018 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms. Known for subjecting their product to non-paid public testing and analysis, Crowdstrike manages to keep receiving unbiased reviews of their solution. Their Endpoint Protection solution is also mentioned in the best Endpoint Security solutions for 2019 and is available to test for free throughout the no-hassle Crowdstrike Falcon Prevent Trial program.

Forrester Wave for Endpoint Protection and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

As the only vendor Crowdstrike is named a leader in both the Forrester Wave for Endpoint Protection report and the Forrester Wave for Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) report, thanks to their Falcon Insight product.

CrowdStrike in Gartner Magic Quadrant 2018 for Endpoint Protection Platforms

In the authoritative visionary quadrant from Gartner, called the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms, Crowdstrike leads the way. Crowdstrike is named the top solution for “Lean Forward” or “Type A” organizations in the 2018 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Endpoint Protection Report. CrowdStrike also has the highest score in Gartner Peer Insights for endpoint protection platforms.

CrowdStrike's Real-World Protection Testing pays off

CrowdStrike was the first next-generation solution that participated in non-paid public testing. Opting for this unique approach, running their own Antivirus engines and publically testing products, is done to validate their product claims and effectiveness. Crowdstrike continues to participate in these recurring non-paid public antimalware testings as the first vendor, such as the Real-World Protection Testing in 2018. Just as in 2017, they are expected to earn high marks for high efficacy and low false positives.

Machine learning-based anti-malware engine

SE Labs certified the machine learning engine for inclusion in VirusTotal in 2016, making them the first security vendor to contribute a machine learning-based antimalware engine to VirusTotal. In 2018 this helped them to earn the AAA Award for the SE Labs Enterprise Endpoint Security test, beating other leading legacy solutions.
