WC Vision, producers of the Pirelli World Challenge, today announced a season-long partnership with CrowdStrike, Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint cybersecurity protection.

CrowdStrike, headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., will be an official series sponsor and cybersecurity provider for the 10-weekend season.

The company will also be featured on the side of every PWC car in 2018 as part of this new agreement.

CrowdStrike provides endpoint security, threat intelligence, and incident response services to customers in more than 176 countries.

More than 10 percent of Fortune 1000 companies worldwide leverage CrowdStrike’s technology and services, including 3 of the ten largest companies by revenue and 5 of the ten largest financial institutions. Notable customers included Telstra, ADP and Hilton Hotels and Resorts.

George Kurtz, co-founder and CEO of CrowdStrike, Inc., is also a talented racing driver and captured the Pirelli World Challenge GTSA point championship with nine race wins last year in the No. 04 CrowdStrike/GMG entry.

Kurtz is scheduled to compete in the 2018 PWC GTS division beginning with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg March 9-11.

“Partnering with Pirelli World Challenge as a series sponsor gives CrowdStrike a much larger platform for our rapidly-expanding business,” said Kurtz.

“This will be the third consecutive year we’ve hosted guests in the PWC paddock, which provides both a valuable networking event and an exciting race weekend experience. I’m really looking forward to kicking off the race season with our first CXO Summit in St. Petersburg.”

WC Vision President and CEO Greg Gill added: “We are pleased to have CrowdStrike join us as an official Series Sponsor and as our official Cyber Security provider.

“Their proven track record brings us peace of mind for our cloud security needs, and we’re proud they’ve chosen PWC as a platform to host their executive summit events this season.”
