Beginning July 25, 2019, CrowdStrike will be pushed to your corporate/Partners-purchased Macintosh device. Please note the date was moved one week due to the Enterprise Change Freeze.
It will be required to connect to the Partners Corporate network. CrowdStrike is an additional endpoint security tool application that complements antivirus (AV). Both CrowdStrike and antivirus are required to keep your systems safe and secure. Trend Micro antivirus is available for installation on all Mac and Windows devices used for Partners business purposes, including research. Please see Supported Antivirus Software for a full list.
CrowdStrike end point protection and Trend Micro antivirus are available for download from the Partners Enterprise Apple Support (PEAS) Self Service application.
CrowdStrike can also be self-installed prior to the automatic push using the directions below.
Please note: Apple released the public beta version for the next operating system for Mac desktops & laptops, macOS Catalina (10.15). We recommend you do not upgrade at this time. Traditionally new Mac Operating Systems will initially cause compatibility issues with Partners services.
To download CrowdStrike via Self Service:
- Launch “Self Service”
- In “Applications”, search for “CrowdStrike Falcon Sensor”
- Select Install

Thank you in advance.
