CrowdStrike Falcon

It's a great solution with a massive deployment scenario with a lot of endpoints, and where the time is an issue and you need to be protected ASAP - thanks to its cloud-based architecture you will be up and running in almost 10 minutes (literally). There are no signatures, further refinements, or additional hardware and servers required. An always or almost always offline [scenario] is not well-suited for Falcon Pro.

D3 Security

D3 is clearly tailoring their approach to large organizations with a significant geographical footprint who are largely in need of a tool that provides robust analytics and activity graphing to analyze productivity and supervisory efficiency at the executive level. However, small to medium-sized organizations and those with narrow geographical footprints may find the investment vastly more expensive than the return. The implementation of minimum purchasing guidelines means that smaller departments will be forced into purchasing tools they have little to no use for, and medium-size departments will be paying a high price for features they do find helpful but could get elsewhere for a substantially lower price. Additionally, small to medium-sized users may find that D3's focus on large organizational level tools is less helpful than some smaller competitor's software which provides a number of capabilities with more operational relevance for environments like office buildings, college campuses, university police departments, and housing associations.Overall, I would recommend D3 to large organizations who have need of the advanced tools included in their more expensive modules. The lack of some smaller levels of customization, 1st line operational features, and the high-end user interface is less important at that level of implementation.

Pros

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • Ransomware protection. We ran a ransomware simulation with obfuscated executables to hide malware signatures and CrowdStrike found and stopped 15 out of 15.
  • Malware/adware detection. Packaged adware in official installers are instantly blocked without interfering with the install of the primary application.

D3 Security

  • Report creation tool is comprehensive and provides considerable options to attach information, pictures, documents, and create links between cases.
  • D3 provides seamless ability for Dispatch to create a report and provide details and information, and officers in the field to complete it with greater detail.
  • Guard tour tracking and reporting allow easy access to records showing officer presence at critical locations and times and access to hazardous conditions reported during tours.
  • End user interface has been improved over previous versions.
  • High-end workflow, threat assessment, incident response, and analytics tools are available. This is where most of D3's value exists vs. competitors in a similar price range.

Cons

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • 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.

D3 Security

  • The Administration user interface is arcane, confusing, frustrating to use, and is not well supported with comprehensive training and help documentation.
  • D3 does not appear to have substantial customization options for the UI, dispatch, reporting, or guard tour screens when compared to some of their competitors. If it does, the Admin tool does not make it as clear, or simple, to affect these changes as their competitors do.
  • D3 Customer Support has not been particularly responsive to training needs. Multiple promises to provide training and video demonstrations for officers have been unsuccessful. Only a request for Administration training has been provided after several requests and was largely a "one size fits all" presentation. An interactive training environment that visually walks users through the use of all features in a module would be helpful.
  • Case and entity linking, as well as a live search of database entries from previous reports in case management, is not as well implemented compared to some of their competitors. There is room for improvement in this regard, and I expect D3 will do so in future versions.
  • Implementation of server upgrades and/or version changes have not been managed smoothly. Recent technical upgrades resulted in a multi-day disruption of D3 usability due to extreme slowness, as well as several modules not functioning properly for multiple days. Followup in the aftermath of the upgrade was nonexistent and we had to reach out regarding the chronic slowdowns and module issues, which they seemed to already be aware of. The solution to most of these issues was accomplished by the end-user and could have been communicated prior to the upgrade to mitigate most of these issues. It was not.
  • They have been aggressive in marketing additional modules and features. It is unfortunate that they have not been nearly as aggressive and responsive in follow-up when supporting their product and providing training and client outreach when there isn't an additional financial incentive for them to do so.
  • The program is not well tailored for small to medium-sized departments and lacks features which are provided by software developed with input from end-users who work in this industry. The lack of several small, and easily implemented, features which are tremendously helpful to the average security department reduces cost-to-value of this program considerably.
  • The annual subscription for D3 is comparable to other large competitor suites, but vastly more expensive than some lesser advertised competing software that offers greater customization, more intuitive UI and Administration, modules and features D3 does not offer, and often includes free features that D3 charges a high price for.

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

CrowdStrike Falcon

Overall I found CrowdStrike Falcon's EDR capabilities superior to their competitors. Also, the user interface has taken its time to mature and is very intuitive and has a natural flow. Policy configuration and assignment as well as the features and settings within the config were more complete and met all our requirements. Lastly, the agent plays nice with everything else running on systems. We hardly ever have issues of Falcon interfering with users or services, and false positives are kept at a minimum.

Return on Investment

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • 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.

D3 Security

  • D3 has provided the documentation and reporting functions needed to deal with numerous false claims and economically based accusations of hazardous conditions.
  • D3 has provided us with searchable records and documentation that have been useful in court, as well as in several studies and projects analyzing vulnerabilities and hot spots in and around our location.
  • D3 has proven more expensive than some competitors which are better positioned to support our operations and has recently skyrocketed in price due to minimum purchase requirements being doubled since our last renewal.
