Its product portfolio includes endpoint detection and response (EDR) and so-called "next-generation" (i.e. signature-less) anti-virus (AV) prevention capabilities, which together mean its Falcon platform can be described as an endpoint protection platform (EPP).
Falcon deploys a lightweight agent on an endpoint device to inform CrowdStrike's cloud-based back-end system about anomalous activity.
Features and benefits:
- Explains how EDR firms are evolving into complete EPPs.
- Shows how this changes market dynamics.
- How does CrowdStrike use machine learning?
- Why has EDR become a major security activity of late?
