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.

Dynatrace NAM (formerly DCRUM)

Dynatrace Network Application Monitoring (NAM), formerly DCRUM, has improved greatly compared to when it was DCRUM; however, it still needs a lot of improvement in end-to-end flow capture with regards to network monitoring. Its alerting and integration capabilities are very good and easy to use. But it still needs a lot of tweaking in usability.

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.

Dynatrace NAM (formerly DCRUM)

  • Dynatrace DCRUM can monitor legacy application protocols that are still used in a lot of organizations worldwide who still trust in those technologies.
  • DCRUM monitors client-server architectures very well and can pinpoint issues along an infrastructure stack.
  • Dynatrace DCRUM can analyze a wide spectre of protocols: Corba, DNS, DB2, Exchange, TCP, HTTP, IBM MQ, Citrix, ICMP, Informix, Tuxedo, SMB, LDAP, MSRPC, MySQL, NetFlow, Net8, Oracle Forms, RMI, SAP GUI, SAP HANA, SAP RFC, SMB, SOAP, XML.

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.

  • Major upgrades process is sometimes unpredictable.
  • The use of SQL Server should be evaluated for something else.
  • Easier SSL key handling.

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.

The only thing missing for a 10, would be if they texted or called you back.

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.

Nagios can't trace real user transactions from a front-end tier through a backend-tier,;with Nagios you only can monitor server availability and hardware issues. Riverbed is commonly used to determine networking issues without considering real user transactions impact on an application stack.

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.

  • Dynatrace Network Application Monitoring (NAM), formerly DCRUM, helped us get a lot of info on an ongoing issue.
  • It helped us figure out network bottlenecks in our environment.
  • It is a very costly tool and a lot of other cheaper tools give same kind of info.
