    1E

    When we are needing to patch workstations for zero-day vulnerabilities or security risks, Tachyon Explorer is our go-to tool to push out those settings quickly. We have a Tachyon server stood up in our DMZ to communicate with the workstations outside of our VPN, so we can push those settings or patches to devices without needing them to attach to our network. It's really nice to be able to communicate with the computers that rarely connect to our corporate network and ensure that they are still protected. We do have the 1E Client installed on all of our internal servers in order to get inventory and licensing information, but we don't typically utilize the Tachyon software on the servers for much else. A different team handles those computers and often requires change management, so expedited changes don't happen often there. Standard deployment and patching tools do the job.

    CrowdStrike

    Anyone who is looking for a leader in endpoint protection should consider CrowdStrike Falcon for sure, regardless of specific use cases. Anybody who is operating on a very lean security team that doesn't have the capability to provide 24x7x365 coverage should absolutely consider Falcon Complete. I've worked with various MSSP's in the past, but Falcon Complete is one I would definitely not lose any sleep at night knowing we're in good hands.

    Pros

    1E

    • Extremely quick responses from Tachyon Explorer provides immediate feedback
    • Automated software reclaim for unused software keeps our licensing costs down
    • Guaranteed State gives us peace of mind that our required policy settings will remain intact
    • Tachyon Experience gives an in-depth insight into proactive performance troubleshooting

    CrowdStrike

    • Endpoint Isolation - instead of hoping an adversary was blocked in time. CrowdStrike locks down the endpoint beyond using the Windows Firewall. Allowing a whitelist of IPs brings additional management of that endpoint to another level that most other tools don't have.
    • Rich Data Recording - CrowdStrike is best described as a giant tape recorder in the sky. When it lands on the box, it truly provides insight into the those that other tools could only dream of.
    • Extensive APIs - CrowdStrike understands that they are not your only security vendor, so they have API usage for everything in their platform to automate and integrate to your heart's desire.
    • Cloud Visibility - CrowdStrike's cloud monitoring capabilities are agnostic of cloud platform. No longer does one need to worry about putting all their eggs in one basket because the endpoint tool prefers one platform over another.

    Cons

    1E

    • They currently don't have all of their products incorporated into the Tachyon web interface, meaning that we need a separate administration console for using their Shopping product.
    • The 1E Tachyon Exchange is an online repository for common or useful instructions, but it is still a bit lacking. New instructions aren't published very often.
    • Writing your own custom instructions for Tachyon Explorer has a bit of a learning curve if you aren't already familiar with SQL queries or their SCALE language. There is published documentation for SCALE, but I'd like to see them add a basic functionality course to their online training portal.

    CrowdStrike

    • The ability to do a system-level scan like a traditional AV is missing and isn't a feature CrowdStrike is planning on implementing. Old school IT guys are going to be curious about this.
    • Host management and deletion are clunky and take 45 days for a machine to fall off your subscription license.

      Usability

      1E

      1E Tachyon has plenty of features and functionality right out of the box. They offer a Tachyon Exchange web portal where you can go to download new Tachyon product packs as they become available through consulting engagements and customer requests. Sometimes you might need to do something more specific or customized than what is available to everyone, and that's when your own knowledge is put to the test. Being able to write your own SCALE code would be invaluable, but takes a while to learn if you aren't already familiar with SQL, PowerShell, or a few other popular languages. Making it your own can definitely take some work, but it's worth it in the end.

      When I receive support, it is always useful and informative. However, the support doesn't get back to me in the most timely manner. Often, by the time I hear back from support I have already resolved the issue. But for bigger issues, that need more in-depth help the support team has been incredibly valuable.

      Alternatives Considered

      1E

      Microsoft has good intentions, but they are often late to the table. On more than one occasion, we have seen Microsoft incorporate a new feature into their own products, but it's something that 1E had already been offering for a year or more. By the time Microsoft adds a new feature, it has already been in our 1E toolbox and even then doesn't seem to have all of the additional functionality that we get from the 1E software. Currently, we're starting to see Microsoft's push for endpoint performance analytics, which 1E Tachyon has already done impressively for some time now.

      Crowdstrike Falcon Endpoint protection is based on AIML enhanced technology,l. It's cloud-based so users don't need to connect to their office network to get their policy synchronization done from Server to endpoints agents. Also, the Crowdstrike Falcon agent size is small and it consumes fewer resources of the machine.

      Return on Investment

      1E

      • Being able to deploy configuration changes while devices are off-network was a real-life-saver for us during the sudden work-from-home scenarios we faced during the pandemic.
      • Reclaiming unused software licenses has provided some additional budget to use towards other products, and helps us to justify the cost of what we already have.
      • Using Experience to proactively troubleshoot performance issues not only reduces the number of help desk tickets but also provides a better work environment for our employees.

      CrowdStrike

      • CrowdStrike has cut our security costs.
      • Has given us more insight into our end points.
      • It has helped with our older PC's CPU usage.
      • Cut our cost and time from managing multiple platforms down to managing one platform with better insight than what we had with multiple security platforms.
