CrowdStrike is a computer monitoring tool designed to prevent and respond to attempts to compromise computer systems. It analyzes the effects of external activities on computer systems, including workstations and servers.

The software records details about programs that are run and the names of files that are read or written. It also monitors network connections to detect patterns that indicate malicious activity. While tracking these connections and basic data about your computer’s operating system and active users, CrowdStrike does not inspect the contents of documents and other data being transmitted.

CrowdStrike is unlikely to affect your computer’s performance. It uses a negligible amount of bandwidth to function.
