Integrating SecureCircle’s technology will allow us to address a complex problem that we consistently hear about from our customers, data protection, and deliver a revolutionary yet simple solution by enforcing frictionless Zero Trust control at multiple levels, all delivered through CrowdStrike’s lightweight Falcon agent on the endpoint.”
