CrowdStrike has started to offer a cloud-based endpoint protection platform to state and local government customers via a procurement vehicle managed by the California Department of General Services.
Falcon, which employs artificial intelligence, is available to government entities via the California Software Licensing Program PLUS, CrowdStrike said Thursday.
The platform is designed to use global insight, cyber intelligence, machine learning and behavioral-based detections to help users prevent, detect or respond to cyber threats.
James Yeager, vice president of the public sector and healthcare business at CrowdStrike, said the company is "committed to protecting government networks from the most challenging cyberattacks."
Yeager added the selection of the company as an EPP vendor to SLP PLUS demonstrates its technology's potential to help public sector organizations gain visibility to address threats.
CrowdStrike holds Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program certification for Falcon and offers cybersecurity services under the Department of Homeland Security's Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program.
