Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud Drive is a fantastic backup solution for storing your digital files on the web, but if you want to manage, tweak, organize or otherwise maintain those files after they have reached the cloud, the experience immediately begins to suffer. This is especially noted when major competitor products like Microsoft and Dropbox offer similar services at similar prices, but offer far better interfaces for file management.

CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection

It simply works. I do get alerts, but I know Crowdstrike is blocking the behavior or malware, so I don't lose any sleep. Since installing CS, we have not had a single security incident. Nice to focus on other value add tasks than remediating malware or Ransomeware.

Pros

  • As far as we know, it's the best value. Our current plan is for something like 4-5 terabytes.
  • Good interface both on the website and on the app.

  • Detects and automatically blocks dangerous behavior on endpoints that could be indicative of malicious activity, like executing programs from the deleted items folder, executing a SSH command in silent mode from different places in the OS, etc.
  • Monitors endpoints continuously for known malware, evaluates dangerous behaviors and blocks execution based on risk tolerance settings, uses AI to draw correlations on multiple attack vectors, and has a human malware hunting element to detect known or newly detected attack vectors.
  • Is easy to deploy across a large organization and manage centrally by as few as 1 person part time.
  • This was the fastest and easiest implementation of an enterprise grade security system I have ever done. I pushed software to the endpoints on a Friday afternoon, and was complete by Noon on Monday, as each workstation came online, the installer completed, and we were protected.

Cons

  • Over simplistic at times - could have some more features
  • Possibly have the ability to lock documents to prevent further editing if using collaboratively/sharing

  • We get false positive detections when we run an email signature script for our users. These false positives can be a distraction. We've implemented a whitelist for those behaviors, but had some difficulty in figuring out how to configure CrowdStrike to recognize these executions since the file name and hash were always different (the executing file was firstname_lastname.exe, and that was too Vague to whitelist.

Alternatives Considered

Even though Dropbox is great and has syncing capacities, we use Amazon Cloud Drive just because we are on AWS big time.

Trend Micro, Darktrace (I like Darktrace a lot too), Cylance. Crowdstrike is as good or better than all the other products. Trend Micro AV/endpoint security is probably less mature, but CS and Darktrace are both excellent tools. Cylance is good too, but there has been some long-term concern expressed whether the Cylance algorithms can evolve as fast as malicious code.

Return on Investment

  • It's another place to store the documentation, we are using this as safety blanket. Even though it has [not] returned any monetary benefit, it gives us a good night sleep as all our important documents are safe in cloud.

  • CS is fairly expensive for security software, but it works.
  • From an ROI perspective, if you could quantify the cost of a day or more of company downtime during a Ransomware event, plus the remediation time, and the fact that you will likely have some data loss, the cost is quickly justified.
  • CS keeps our business units (26 across the globe) up and running 24/7 with no incidents for 2 years and running.
  • Easy install, little time required to administrate and manage, makes this a security tool most CIO / CISO executives can love.
