We do expect a strong interest in CrowdStrike's mission and a willingness to engage with the needs of our product teams and customers.

About the Product:

CrowdStrike has pioneered the use of artificial intelligence (AI) since we first introduced AI-powered protection to replace signature-based antivirus over 10 years ago, and we’ve continued to deeply integrate it across our platform since.

Using the recent advances in Large Language Models technologies, CrowdStrike introduced Charlotte AI, a new generative AI security analyst. It uses the world’s highest-fidelity security data and it is seamlessly integrated with CrowdStrike’s industry-leading threat hunters, managed detection and response operators, and incident response experts. Charlotte AI engine represents a first of its type offering empowering users of all skill levels to leverage the data available in the Falcon Platform,while reducing security operations complexity and cost.
