CrowdStrike (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leading provider of cloud-based endpoint, cloud workload, identity and data protection, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CrowdStrike the winner of the 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards has chosen . CrowdStrike is recognized for Best Cloud Security with CrowdStrike Cloud Security, its Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) solution.
CrowdStrike’s adversarial approach to CNAPP offers both agent-based and agentless solutions powered by the CrowdStrike Falcon platform. This gives organizations the flexibility they need to determine how best to eliminate security risks and ensure compliance at scale across the application development lifecycle in the cloud. CrowdStrike’s CNAPP capabilities streamline cloud deployments by providing complete visibility, shift-left security, continuous breach prevention, and industry-leading threat intelligence.
“We believe that with CNAPP, you need both agent-based and agentless solutions to protect cloud infrastructure. CrowdStrike enables you to detect and block attacks in real-time with best-in-class threat intelligence and comprehensive risk visibility across your cloud environments, and achieve cloud compliance,” said Michael Sentonas, chief technology officer at CrowdStrike. “Other vendors are promoting agentless CNAPP solutions that claim to provide threat visibility and prioritization in cloud environments. In reality, their technology is limited to a single snapshot for each threat scan. It’s not real-time and they can’t fix threats – they just detect them. With CrowdStrike, organizations can get end-to-end protection from host to cloud, providing greater visibility, compliance, and threat intelligence to trick the adversary and stop breaches.”
“Our CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize the technology providers making the greatest impact on digital transformation for solution providers with unique, cutting-edge products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It is my pleasure to congratulate each and every one of our 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Award winners. We are pleased to recognize these world-class providers who are driving transformation and innovation in IT.”
