CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection


CrowdStrike Falcon is a next-generation anti-virus product that uses a combination of artificial intelligence, behavioral detection, machine learning algorithms, and exploit mitigation, to protect against known and unknown threats. This means that CrowdStrike Falcon will protect you against many of the newest kinds of attacks, such as ransomware and unauthorized remote access. Another benefit of CrowdStrike Falcon is that it is lightweight and only consumes 1% or less of CPU.


At this time, CrowdStrike Falcon has been pushed to all University-owned computers as the registered agent for computer protection. With the installation of CrowdStrike Falcon, there will be no change in your computer’s behavior or performance. Information on transitioning personally-owned computers away from Sophos will follow.
