CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, today announced that it has ranked #1 for the second consecutive time for Modern Endpoint Security revenue market share in IDC’s report: Worldwide Modern Endpoint Security Market Shares, July 2020 – June 2021: CrowdStrike and Microsoft Outdistancing All Other Vendors in a Rapidly Expanding Market (doc # US48616621, January 2022). According to the report, CrowdStrike owns “14.2% total shares of the 2021 endpoint security market and brought in $986.1 million in revenue, demonstrating 75.1% growth.” IDC’s report demonstrates CrowdStrike’s market leadership as the company continues its trajectory to outpace competitors in innovation and strategy.
The report examines how during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations globally transitioned from on-premise data centers to public clouds and expanded the need to secure both endpoints and workloads in their IT environments. Survey findings from IDC indicate that adoption of cloud applications shows no signs of slowing down, and in fact, will most likely increase moving forward.
Within the report’s Who Shaped the Year section, IDC highlights CrowdStrike and states, “CrowdStrike’s cloud-native approach continues to deliver. In the past year, CrowdStrike’s share in the worldwide modern endpoint security market rose by 4 percentage points. Correspondingly, CrowdStrike’s customer base expanded. The company reported its number of subscription customers increased 81% from 7,230 at the end of July 31, 2020, to 13,080 at the end of July 31, 2021.”
