CrowdStrike Receives Highest Overall Score in the January 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for EDR

Written by: Brian Burke and John Crotty of Crowdstrike

In the latest customer choice recognitions for endpoint detection and response (EDR), CrowdStrike stands as the highest rated vendor in the January 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for EDR.  That’s right: We did it — AGAIN!  On the heels of being named the highest rated vendor in the November2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Protection Platforms*, CrowdStrike was just named the highest rated vendor in the January 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Solutions.  We are thrilled to be getting this feedback from our customers and honored to be recognized by them for both our EPP and EDR solutions.

CrowdStrike is the only Customers’ Choice vendor with a 4.8 rating for EDR*.  This is the highest rating for all vendors included in this recognition.* The vendors assessed for the Customers’ Choice recognition must have 50 or more approved ratings and an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or greater over the past 12 months.  We think it’s an honor to once again be at the top of this list.

These reviews are rigorously evaluated by Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, to ensure there is never any vendor bias or hidden agendas — just the real voices of enterprise users.  The following are some examples of what our customers are saying about CrowdStrike.

Customer Reviews on Gartner Peer Insights for CrowdStrike

“They truly are a cutting-edge world class product/company to deal with. From every stage of the product deployment CrowdStrike has exceeded our expectations. The ease of deployment/the ability to scale instantly is just amazing, when it comes to a simple cloud-based solution, CS EDR is leading the pack.”
 Security Engineer in the Manufacturing Industry

“One of the best products I have encountered. User interface is superbly intuitive. Deployment was a breeze. Highly recommended.”
 Head – IT Infrastructure in the Energy and Utilities Industry

“I sleep well at night knowing that Falcon is on guard. Support from CrowdStrike is incredibly responsive from the beginning of the sales cycle through implementation and daily use.”
 IT Director in the Transportation Industry

“Best on the market!! I’ve had the liberty of testing multiple EDR solutions before we purchased CrowdStrike’s EDR and I believe we got the best product on the market with great visibility and functionality.”
 Network Security Administrator in the Healthcare Industry

“Deployment, features, and support: Falcon has it all. It’s very easy to deploy and maintain. The investigation tools are easy to navigate and contain an overwhelming amount of data from installed endpoints. Best of all, the footprint on each sensor is impossibly small compared to any other AV product evaluated.”
 Network Security Analyst in a Miscellaneous Industry

Up And To The Right

With explosive growth and customer and industry recognition, we believe CrowdStrike is proving that our pioneering, cloud-based approach is the future of endpoint security. We continue to distance ourselves from the pack of next-gen solution providers and capture increasing market share from legacy AV vendors — displacing fossilized and ineffective AV solutions at a rapid rate. We would like to thank our customers for their continued trust and support, and for this tremendous recognition from them.  We remain committed, first and foremost, to our customers’ success and ensuring they have the most effective and comprehensive endpoint protection possible.
