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.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

If you're looking for basic signature-based anti-virus at a reasonable price, F-Secure Protection for Business could be a good choice. It does a good job for anti-virus but doesn't include the more advanced features of more expensive products like intrusion detection, forensics, and protection of zero day exploits. It may work well in combination with other tools.

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.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

  • Anti-virus (classic signature-based). This is a classic anti-virus tool without some of the fancy bells and whistles of more expensive products.
  • Real-time protection. The product can do filesystem scheduled scans as well as real-time analysis of files.
  • Browser protection. It comes with a decent browser plugin that can block access to malicious sites.

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.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

  • It does not provide "next gen" features like zero day protection, forensics, intrusion detection and analysis.
  • The management interface is clunky and difficult to use.
  • Real-time protection and firewall services can interfere with legitimate activities at times and make it difficult to troubleshoot.

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.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

F-Secure stacks up very well against competitors like McAfee and Norton. Cost is very reasonable, performance is great, and it does as good (or better) a job of these more well-known products. F-Secure particularly works well for non-profits looking to negotiate for a more reasonable rate.

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.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business

  • Positive - very generous discounts for non-profits make this inexpensive compared to other products.
  • F-Secure has caught some (but not all) malware incidents on our workstations, which have saved us time and money.
  • The cost/benefit ratio is very high. For what you're getting, this is a reasonably priced product.
