CrowdStrike Holdings (CRWD) is a cybersecurity service provider. Since March 2021, the stock has been trending sideways. How likely is CRWD to reverse the sideways trend with an upward trend after the volatility period?
CrowdStrike’s recently acquired ecosystem of protection for endpoints of IT systems has been noted as one of the major advantages in the current situation. In today’s corporate networks, numerous devices are connected, including smartphones, terminals, mobile and remote work interfaces, and IoT sensors. Among the endpoints of the network infrastructure, these devices are the most prone to hacking and difficult to manage. In addition to providing new customers, investments in this area can also result in successful sales of other services, including protection against ransomware that locks down IT systems.
CrowdStrike Holdings (CRWD) subscribers increased by 82 % in the past fiscal year, and there were approximately ten thousand at the end of January 2021. It’s encouraging to see CrowdStrike moving toward a comprehensive solution that is easier to sell to large companies and provides higher margins. Earlier this month, CrowdStrike launched a new solution that combines a cyber threat analytics data warehouse with tools for identifying attacks and vulnerabilities. Identifying the attack source increases the probability of tracking down the attacker, a particular feature of the program. Using this strategy, CrowdStrike maintains a portfolio of IT solutions in line with the latest market trends.
