Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well

CrowdStrike Falcon

There aren't many scenarios where I wouldn't recommend CrowdStrike. You'll have the ability to create protection policies for different parts of your environment so that sensitive machines have as much protection as possible, and low-risk machines aren't overly locked down. The only reason I can't see someone choosing CrowdStrike is over a matter of budget. It's not the most expensive, nor is it the cheapest.

Pros

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • An instant scan of file level downloads so that introduction of a variant file is limited before the scan engine clears it.
  • Dashboard use of the agents available allows for near real-time review and action without directed access to the station.
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • 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

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • Dashboard refresh when you have over 100 end agents can be lagging at times
  • The agent install process has potential to hang without alert or warning unless your paying attention through the complete install
  • The silent install process can be problematic when dealing with large-scale networks with varied OS models
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • Falcon isn't continuously scanning the machine, if something is downloaded and viewed as safe it won't be re-checked later.
  • More dashboards and information on vulnerabilities on the machines would be helpful.
  • More reports that could be given to executives would also be beneficial. There are some now, but the options are rather limited.

ControlNow more nimble and less impactful on the local PC

CrowdStrike Falcon

Business requirements, mainly. The most important/useful items we appreciate is ease of use and customer service and this product exceeds expectations in that regard. Other offers cover legacy systems and remain with that solution. However, the granularity that you can introduce to an environment is outstanding, all that without losing the simplicity of use.

Return on Investment

  • The frequency and extent of data security issues have been drastically reduced.
