    About the Product

    CrowdStrike Falcon for Mobile is a two-component security product. One component is a “sensor”: a driver installed on mobile devices that observes system activity and recognizes malicious behavior, then provides on-device prevention capability and remote telemetry to the Falcon cloud. The sensor processes thousands of events per second to provide deep visibility into operations on the endpoint, and performs rich correlation and computation to identify malicious events.

    The cloud component aggregates sensor telemetry for each customer’s network, identifies malicious behavior, and presents our customers’ operations teams with a prioritized summary of the threats detected in their environments.
