According to the 2022 CrowdStrike Global Threat Report, there was an 82% increase in ransomware-related data leaks in 2021. As cyberattacks like ransomware continue to cause business disruption and massive financial losses, organizations need expert resources to help respond to a security incident. Leveraging the power of the Falcon platform, CrowdStrike Services delivers incident response services to help customers prepare for attacks, respond to breaches and fortify their cybersecurity practices.
The Forrester Wave™: Cybersecurity Incident Response Services, Q1 2022 report consists of 24 criteria grouped into three categories: Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence. CrowdStrike Services, which offers incident response, was evaluated among IR services from 13 vendors. In Forrester’s evaluation, CrowdStrike received the highest score possible in nine criteria:

“With breaches potentially costing organizations millions of dollars, incident response has become critical to minimizing the disruption to business operations,” said Shawn Henry, CrowdStrike chief security officer and president of CrowdStrike Services. “Today’s adversaries have become more evasive and persistent, finding new ways to exploit stolen credentials, move throughout the corporate environment, and profit from stolen data and other illicit activity. Stopping them requires speed and visibility, and it takes the combined effort of human expertise and technology to thwart these advanced actors. With the combination of our Falcon platform, threat hunting experts and best-in-class incident response, CrowdStrike Services is leading the industry in protecting organizations from the most sophisticated threats. I am honored to serve alongside our team, and couldn’t be more proud of them.”
