CrowdStrike Falcon Host Next-Gen Antivirus

Technology Category: Endpoint Protection Platform



Falcon Host Endpoint Detection Technology uniquely combines these powerful methods into an integrated approach that protects endpoints more effectively against both malware and breaches:

The use cases include:

Known malware prevention

Blacklisting and whitelisting

Machine Learning

Exploit mitigation to stop attacks that exploit vulnerabilities to compromise hosts

Indicators of Attack (IOAs) to look across to detect stealthy chains of activities that indicate attacks. Learn more about IOAs


How It Works

Falcon Host provides next-generation antivirus, EDR and managed hunting capabilities in a tiny 5MB sensor that is Cloud managed and delivered, and that can be deployed and operational in hours, on tens of thousands of endpoints.

The unique benefits of this unified and lightweight approach are immediate time to value and better protection that goes beyond detecting malware to stop breaches before they occur. This capability is based on our unique focus on detecting Indicators of Attack (IOA) in addition to other protection methods such as machine learning, exploit blocking, blacklisting and whitelisting. Another unique aspect is that Falcon Host is backed by the 24/7 Falcon Overwatch, CrowdStrike’s team of proactive hunters, creating an expertise and effectiveness multiplier to your internal security team.

Falcon Host is focused on stopping breaches. While existing endpoint and server products are ineffective against sophisticated threats and adversaries — particularly attacks that are not dependent on malware — Falcon Host provides advanced detection, prevention, monitoring and search capabilities to close this security gap and keep adversaries off your endpoints and out of your environment.

Smart and lightweight sensor — less than 5MB in size, invisible to end users, with no productivity impact

Signature-less technologies that do not require signature updates

Built-in endpoint detection and response (EDR) augments protection with unprecedented detection, visibility, and forensics abilities in one agent

A 100% cloud-delivered solution deployed and instantly operational

About CrowdStrike

CrowdStrike was founded in 2011 to fix a fundamental problem: The sophisticated attacks that were forcing the world’s leading businesses into the headlines could not be solved with existing malware-based defenses. Co-founders George Kurtz and Dmitri Alperovitch realized that a brand new approach was needed — one that combines the most advanced endpoint protection with expert intelligence to pinpoint the adversaries perpetrating the attacks, not just the malware.
