About the Role:

CrowdStrike Falcon is a two-component security product. One component is the "sensor", installed on endpoint client systems that observes system activity and recognizes malicious behavior, then provides on-box prevention capability and remote telemetry to the Falcon cloud. The Cloud component aggregates sensor telemetry for each customer's network and can correlate malicious behavior across multiple machines, presenting our customers' operations teams with a prioritized summary of the threats detected in their environments.
