Ex-McAfee executives set up new security firm, CrowdStrike
According to latest information, two ex- executives from McAfee have started a new security firm. They have started a firm named CrowdStrike , which is developing technology to help corporations and government agencies to track down mysterious hackers.
Sources informed, the ex-executives had left the security software maker McAfee after Intel Corp bought the company last year.
Reliable aides informed that CrowdStrike’s new Chief Executive, George Kurtz has announced the information about the company on a blog post.
Kurtz further added in his blog that his firm is deliberately working on a new technology that will help clients identify who is targeting them, rather than simply identify and remove pieces of malicious software from their networks.
The new firm CrowdStrike is reportedly promising to have an efficient security product out by second quarter that will target the so-called advanced persistent threat (APT) problem which caused intruder attack and steal user’s sensitive data.
