Box, Inc. (NYSE:BOX) CEO Aaron Levie: "Box is Powering Secure Remote Work for Enterprises of All Sizes - Modern Cloud Platforms for Organizations of The Future"

"While there is an undoubtably significant economic disruption in many sectors right now, there is also an unmistakable sense that this is an opportunity to accelerate digital transformation. Organizations are now beginning to re-factor how they operate for the 21st century, eliminating paper-based processes, automating manual workflows and creating new digital customer experiences…. This future will be built on modern cloud platforms and that's where Box comes in…"

"Nearly 100,000 customers now rely on Box to power secure collaboration in critical processes across their businesses. And Q1 highlighted how important Box is to our customers and just how much of a transformational impact we can have. Just to give you a few examples. As we announced, in the quarter, the USDA recently chose Box to power the organization's secure remote work initiatives and help digitize operations within its 2,500 farm service centers across the country. Vistra Energy, which produces electricity for nearly 60 power plants across the country for five million customers leveraged Box along with our tight integrations with Slack, Zoom, Office 365 and G-Suite to quickly and smoothly transition teams to remote work. And Box enabled General Electric to keep employees connected both to each other and to their customers while also keeping them secure on more than half a million connected devices."

"Over the past few years, we have methodically been building the category defining cloud content management platform focused on three key differentiators, frictionless security and compliance, seamless external and internal collaboration and workflow and world-class integrations and APIs that extend the value of Box into any application...We are entering a "new normal" for business and we are in the best position to help our customers emerge stronger than ever...Our Q1 results demonstrate the progress that we have made and we believe that by powering secure remote work for enterprises of all sizes, we are positioned well for further executing going forward."

CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRWD) CEO, George Kurtz: "Remote Workforce Driving Increased Demand for Cloud Security"

"We believe work from home and digital transformation are sustainable trends for our business. It is mission critical to protect workloads irrespective of where they are located on or off the corporate network. We believe these trends have helped increase our leadership in the security cloud category that we pioneered. And third, we continue to win new logos as companies are rapidly pivoting away from on-premise legacy technologies and moving to cloud-native architectures that provide prevention, visibility, and control on a single platform. Additionally, the competitive environment has evolved to our favor as market share of the incumbents continues to erode."

"The security challenges associated with a remote or hybrid workforce are best solved by a cloud-native platform that aggregates and analyzes data in the cloud, operates at web scale, leverages network effects to produce superior outcomes, and importantly is easy to deploy and simple to manage on a fully remote basis. This describes the security cloud, a new category that we have pioneered. Because the Falcon platform is cloud-native and our lightweight agent does not require a reboot, customers can easily and remotely deploy, manage, and protect their workloads at scale irrespective of where their employees are located."

"We continue to displace Symantec customers for a lot of the reasons that we have talked about in the past, people are looking for platforms and they are looking for technologies that actually work and stop breaches. Ransomware has been a huge driver and signature-based AV is really not capable of dealing with sophisticated ransomware…In today's environment, if we think about the healthcare community, the last thing anyone would want would be a ransomware attack in the middle of the pandemic… So, that's one. Two is on the next-gen players. Again, we spent the time and effort to build the platform out from the ground up, right. It's the same Salesforce, Workday, ServiceNow, CrowdStrike. We don't have an on-premise version, because that's not our model. So, lot of our competitors built on-premise versions. They try to move it to the cloud and call it a cloud offering. Their data is still on each endpoint. The value is being able to aggregate this data at scale, which we figured out with our threat graph. And effectively that creates a data mode plus the module expansion allows customers to add more modules not agents. And even our next-gen competitors, they still have three and four different agents because of their acquisitions. So people want something that's simple, want something that works and want something that's future proof and ultimately stops the breach."
