CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity leader, specializing in endpoint protection and threat intelligence is opening a new Development Center in Romania.

Founded in 2011 in California, CrowdStrike is currently one of the most important cybersecurity companies. The startup has made a name for itself through investigating and reporting high-profile data leaks around the world, and it played the main role in proving that Russia had breached the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2016.

With operations in 176 countries and the ability to collect and process over 100 billion events each day, CrowdStrike plays a significant role in protecting global financial systems against cyber-attacks. Currently, the company is experiencing rapid growth and continues to expand its services and team of dedicated talents.

According to co-founder and CTO Dmitri Alperovitch, the new Development Center in Bucharest will be a hub focused on research, software development and innovation to help meet the growing demands of CrowdStrike’s expanding global footprint.

Drive to innovation

Cyber-threats are constantly evolving and adapting with remarkable speed. Therefore, the fight against cybercrime is never-ending. That’s why cybersecurity companies have to constantly innovate their strategies. CrowdStrike was nominated by MIT as one of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies for driving major innovations around AI/machine learning, behavioral-based prevention and detection, to stay ahead of adversaries.

The company’s core technology, platform named Falcon protects customers against all types of cyber attacks and uses AI solutions and attack indicators to stop real-time threats. With this cutting-edge solution, only last year they managed to prevent 25 thousand breaches. Platform Approach allows customers to have integrated access to the full suite of endpoint protection solutions, including vulnerability management, automation of threats and device control automation.

CrowdStrike keeps on refining its technology thanks to growing team of experts. The center in Romania will become a major innovation hub for cloud engineers, Windows/ MacOS/ Linuxkernel experts, information security research and data science teams.

CrowdStrike has a dynamic and diverse culture that goes over the borders. Here is global team of the best cybersecurity professionals  who inspires and is able to exchange knowledge and ideas in order to make the cyber world a safer place.

Fighting cybercrime is not an easy job. There are 1.5 million cyber-attacks annually, that means that there are over 4,000 attacks a day, 170 attacks every hour, or nearly three attacks every minute. CrowdStrike’s mission is to keep these statistics as low as possible. As you probably already know, it takes sharp mind and hard work, but the efforts pay off.

Now, when you know it all you can answer one question – are you a cyber hero?
