Since the 2015 launch of its APJ operations in Sydney, Australia,

partner and alliance ecosystem in the region. Prior to that, he was the
managing director of McAfee India and SAARC. He also spent over 10 years
with Cisco.

"The security market has changed and I'm excited to work with the
company leading the charge and setting the new standard for endpoint
protection. CrowdStrike's incredible global growth demonstrates that the
market is ready for a cloud-native approach to endpoint security that is
far more effective and efficient in stopping breaches. India and SAARC
are a strategic growth market for CrowdStrike and I'm looking forward to
driving continued momentum in this region," said Jagdish Mahapatra,
managing director Asia at CrowdStrike.

CrowdStrike has chosen the city of Pune to leverage partnerships with
local universities as part of a long-term collaboration to address the
cybersecurity talent shortage in India. CrowdStrike's Chief Product
Officer, Amol Kulkarni is a College of Engineering Pune Graduate.
"Today, I'm very proud to be here in Pune to launch our CrowdStrike
Innovation and Development Center, and to announce that we are
partnering with the Pune College of Engineering and the Pune University
Cyber Security department to offer cyber education opportunities, as
well as internships," said Amol Kulkarni, chief product officer.

In addition to launching the Innovation and Development Center in Pune
and a local team, CrowdStrike is actively expanding its partner and
channel ecosystem across Asia to support its go-to-market strategy and
service a rapidly growing customer base.

our footprint in APJ, adding resources and operations in the most
high-yielding regional markets. I'm looking forward to expanding our
team and customer base even further and continuing to drive explosive
growth within the India and SAARC market," Andrew Littleproud, vice
