StepStone Case Study

Founded in 1996, StepStone is one of the world’s leading digital recruitment platforms and is ideally positioned to create value in an environment with dramatically increasing talent scarcity. By combining AI-powered hiring platforms and digital recruitment services, StepStone pushes the boundaries of technology to help companies hire the right talent and help people find the right job. StepStone is active in more than 20 countries with more than 20 brands (StepStone, Totaljobs, Appcast, and others) and employs around 3,700 people. The company has its headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany.

StepStone is a rapidly expanding business with a growing presence in the U.S. and plans to enter new markets such as blue-collar industries. As a high-profile online business faced with increasingly sophisticated and numerous cyberattacks, security is more important than ever before.

With the threat level increasing and becoming more sophisticated with phishing and malware attacks, the company realized that its existing antivirus products were no longer sufficient. To rectify the situation, StepStone carried out an extensive review of solutions and created a shortlist of three that included CrowdStrike.
