We are currently using this solution as an ERD tool to control and remediate threat from the endpoint remotely, it serves as a next-gen antivirus solution. It can also be used in a forensic investigation, threat hunting, trend analysis, malware analysis, etc.

We are currently using this solution as a replacement for our antivirus solution. It also helps us in terms of forensic investigation, malware analysis, endpoint detection and response.

We have several use cases including threat management, EDR, AV, and a SOC with 24x7 monitoring.

We implemented CrowdStrike because we needed to identify a new solution to address a 100% remote workforce, both because of COVID, but in general, our workforce is very distributed around the country.

We use it for our endpoint detection and response on our devices for both endpoints and servers. It has replaced our traditional antivirus. We are strictly using it now to do all our antivirus duties. We are primarily a Windows environment, 95 percent Windows. Then, we have a little bit of Linux and Macs in there as well.

We have various use cases. We are protecting servers and endpoints that are utilizing this product to focus on advanced, persistent threats, with the goal of reducing the overhead on the endpoint for early detection. Right now, we have not put enforcement, and we're moving to the next level of detection.

We use this solution for threat protection and endpoint security. Recently, we added on CrowdStrike OverWatch and Insightsoftware for better reporting. OverWatch monitors East-West issues that CrowdStrike Protect doesn't see. New next-generation endpoint security doesn't scan your PC. It doesn't scan files nightly. People have to get past that, it's so old school. I have 50 end-users, one hundred endpoints, and workers of all types, both in-house and remote workers.

We are using this solution for advanced threat protection, over and above any antivirus for approximately 1200 end-users, or endpoints. It is able to identify any anomalies and alert on that using the AI engine. That way, there's a small security team to make them more effective, to be able to get an alert, go in and look at what's going on. Since I have been here, I have been keying into when people fall for phishing attacks and they either get blocked going to a website or their credentials get compromised, and somebody logs in to their Office 365 account. We were able to forensically identify that in two of the cases. Most recently, since I've been here looking at the more active response, to be able to identify and act a little bit more quickly.

The solution is primarily being used at our endpoint, which includes roaming users with laptops. It is being used in all of our servers at our data center. Our security team can monitor everything centrally using the Falcon dashboard. If there is an incident, our team can actually go to the root cause of the incident to try to solve it there.

We use CrowdStrike for our endpoint security and we're about to tie it into vScaler. It's on every endpoint in the company and is used by everyone in the organization. It's anti-virus security software, so we'll continue to put it on every machine whether our company grows or shrinks.I'm the director of information technology in our company and we're a customer of CrowdStrike.

It's security-related product. A security environment based on AIML. It is not like the older stuff, which used to have signature-based updates.
