He’s confident since CrowdStrike helps customers consolidate spend that tends to be a priority in times of an economic downturn. This morning on CNBC’s “TechCheck”, the Chief Executive said:

People want to spend more with vendors that can consolidate; where you can take out two, three, four different products. We have over 22 modules today. With our modular format, we can replace other products and consolidate that spend.

Last week, the Austin-headquartered company capitalized on tumbling valuation and bought Reposify Ltd to expand its footprint in the security space.

“CRWD” is profitable on a free cash flow basis.
