The report, which evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and their ability to execute, also positioned CrowdStrike furthest for completeness of vision in the entire Magic Quadrant.

According to Gartner’s “Forecast Analysis: Information Security and Risk Management, Worldwide, 4Q18 Update,” the worldwide EPP (enterprise) software market is expected to grow from $6.5 billion in 2019, to $7.5 billion by 2022.
“We believe CrowdStrike’s position in the Leaders quadrant validates that our cloud-native model empowers the delivery of endpoint security services at a pace and scale that meets the needs of modern, distributed businesses,” said George Kurtz, chief executive officer and co-founder of CrowdStrike. “We started CrowdStrike from the ground up in the cloud to provide a radically new approach to security and solve the problems faced by modern businesses using fossilized, disparate solutions deemed ineffective in the cloud era. Our placement as furthest for completeness of vision confirms the value proposition that our platform approach and single-agent architecture offers our customers in stopping breaches, while also reducing complexity and security sprawl.”
