CrowdStrike Offers Cybersecurity Platform on Amazon Business

CrowdStrike has launched the CrowdStrike Falcon Go platform on Amazon Business to "help small and medium businesses (SMBs) defend their operations from modern cybersecurity threats," according to the company. The news comes less than a week after CrowdStrike released Falcon Go.

Falcon Go is intended for small IT teams and non-technical users, CrowdStrike noted. It also represents CrowdStrike's first offering on Amazon's business-to-business (B2B) store.

What CrowdStrike Falcon Go Offers

Falcon Go empowers more than six million small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to "prioritize security ahead of the holiday season with the click of a button," a CrowdStrike spokesperson told MSSP Alert.

This platform uses Falcon to protect users' endpoints against threats that many legacy antivirus solutions cannot detect, CrowdStrike said. It also brings AI-powered cybersecurity to "anyone that wants protection that works," said Lisa Campbell, CrowdStrike's vice president of Small and Medium Business.

Falcon Go is now available via Amazon Business. In addition, CrowdStrike is offering Falcon Go at a reduced price through the Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday shopping weekend (November 24–27, 2023).

CrowdStrike Surpasses $1 Billion in Software Sales on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace

Previously, CrowdStrike in October 2023 became the first cybersecurity independent software vendor (ISV) founded for the cloud to exceed $1 billion of software sales via AWS Marketplace. CrowdStrike reached this milestone less than six years after it started offering Falcon on AWS Marketplace.

Dating back to CrowdStrike's release of Falcon on the AWS Marketplace, the company has reported the following achievements:

  • More than 3,000% compound annual revenue growth (CAGR) in sales
  • More than 4,850 customer transactions
  • On average, CrowdStrike's transactions on AWS Marketplace are more than 140% larger than in its other go-to-market channels

CrowdStrike earned AWS's 2023 US ISV Partner of the Year Award in July 2023. Meanwhile, CrowdStrike and AWS sales teams have helped their customers secure their cloud environments and apply their respective technologies to a variety of cybersecurity use cases, the businesses said. Moving forward, CrowdStrike may continue to explore opportunities to expand its partnership with AWS.
