We delivered a strong second quarter with rapid subscription revenue growth and record net new ARR generated in the quarter. Customer growth accelerated as an increasing number of organizations recognize the power of CrowdStrike’s cloud-native Falcon platform to effectively stop breaches and simplify their security stack with our single-agent architecture. We secured a record number of net new subscription customers in the quarter.
