The company had heavily leveraged APIs to facilitate the integration of complementary services to the existing security stack, providing opportunities for Australian resellers that wanted to add value in their own way.
"Every single vendor wants to be the single pane of glass that lets them be all things to all people," Sentonas said. "I don't believe that's a viable strategy in architecture."
CrowdStrike's open API stack "gives customers the ability to integrate our technology into their existing security stack, to provide enrichment and content to their security strategy," he continued. "That lends itself well to an organisation that wants to provide a managed service and integrate our technologies into their overall go to market offering."
The company's expansion into APAC geographies is being fueled by a $US100m investment led by Google Capital last year - funding that the company will leverage to tackle the fast-growing endpoint protection market.
