Building on its five-year involvement with SRO – including its role as Official Internet and Cloud Security Provider – CrowdStrike is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa, known as the biggest GT3 race in the world. With more than 66 cars representing nine manufacturers, 60,000+ fans in attendance and broadcasts streamed around the world, the Total 24 Hours race brings global visibility to the CrowdStrike brand and racing endeavors.
CrowdStrike and the award winning CrowdStrike Falcon Platform continue to gain traction across the world, as CrowdStrike Falcon XDR recently won the Best Emerging Technology category for the SC Awards Europe 2022.
It’s the latest in a long line of industry awards for CrowdStrike. The CrowdStrike Falcon Platform provides advanced security to automatically stop data breaches and attacks like ransomware by protecting the most critical areas of risk: endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data.
Those aspects will be among the topics of discussion at CrowdStrike’s first European CXO Summit at an SRO race weekend – an opportunity for an intimate group of security leaders to have conversations, network, and learn about the latest trends in cybersecurity.
CrowdStrike’s Chief Security Officer and President of Services, Shawn Henry, and Angelo Comazzetto, Principal in the Office of the Chief Information Security Officer (OCISO) at AWS, will lead the discussions at the Roundtable, which is a format repeated successfully at key CrowdStrike Racing events in SRO Motorsports America.
George Kurtz, co-founder and CEO of CrowdStrike, and AWS Chief Information Security Officer CJ Moses – each racers themselves – also will meet with participants and guests during the weekend to further tie in CrowdStrike Racing’s involvement in SRO Motorsports worldwide.
Guests also will have the opportunity to experience the highlight events of the 24 Hours of Spa including a mid-week race car parade, trackside hospitality, track tours and more. A Mercedes-AMG with CrowdStrike Racing livery will lead the Mercedes contingent of the parade from the racetrack to through town and be on display in the paddock of the track throughout the weekend.
Among the sights around the circuit will be CrowdStrike branding and signage that will further cement the company’s presence in this year’s race. Among the locations are at the top of the famed Raidillon corner – one of the most action-packed and viewed portions of the track – and between turns 12 and 13 – the last corners before the track’s backstretch.
