Ignition Technology selects CrowdStrike as the leading XDR technology platform for AI-powered cybersecurity for its UK partner base


UK, London – February 13, 2024 – CrowdStrike (NASDAQ: CRWD), today announced it signed Ignition Technology, as a strategic distribution partner in the UK. The new partnership will give CrowdStrike’s solution providers resources to increase the availability of the AI-native CrowdStrike XDR Falcon® platform to UK businesses through Ignition’s market-leading partner network.

The strategic combination of Ignition’s specialist SaaS cybersecurity focus, go-to-market strategy, channel development capabilities and sales expertise coupled with CrowdStrike’s industry-leading Falcon platform addresses growing customer demand in the UK for modern cybersecurity. Ignition Technology is committed to bringing the most innovative solutions on the market to its growing partner base. By adding the Falcon platform to its portfolio, Ignition Technology will create new market opportunities and accelerate sales by providing customers and partners access to the industry’s best security platform delivering the outcome of stopping breaches.

“CrowdStrike puts partners at the centre of our mission of stopping breaches. As customers around the world demand access to the Falcon platform, we will continue investing our time and resources in strategic partners like Ignition Technology who deliver differentiated customer success and deep market expertise,” said Daniel Bernard, chief business officer at CrowdStrike. “In my experience working with Ignition Technology over the years, there’s an unparalleled commitment to working with cutting-edge technology and executing the most effective sales and technical go-to-market strategies.
