Likelihood to Recommend
Anyone who is looking for a leader in endpoint protection should consider CrowdStrike Falcon for sure, regardless of specific use cases. Anybody who is operating on a very lean security team that doesn't have the capability to provide 24x7x365 coverage should absolutely consider Falcon Complete. I've worked with various MSSP's in the past, but Falcon Complete is one I would definitely not lose any sleep at night knowing we're in good hands.

Read full review Pros Endpoint Isolation - instead of hoping an adversary was blocked in time. CrowdStrike locks down the endpoint beyond using the Windows Firewall. Allowing a whitelist of IPs brings additional management of that endpoint to another level that most other tools don't have. Rich Data Recording - CrowdStrike is best described as a giant tape recorder in the sky. When it lands on the box, it truly provides insight into the those that other tools could only dream of. Extensive APIs - CrowdStrike understands that they are not your only security vendor, so they have API usage for everything in their platform to automate and integrate to your heart's desire. Cloud Visibility - CrowdStrike's cloud monitoring capabilities are agnostic of cloud platform. No longer does one need to worry about putting all their eggs in one basket because the endpoint tool prefers one platform over another. Read full review FortiMail earned a AAA rating from SE Labs and a 99.78%. Spam Capture Rate from Virus Bulletin. The solution has an effective Antivirus module that protects from malicious URLs and attachments. It also has an integrated cloud sandbox or can be integrated with a physical or virtual appliance (with an additional license). Read full review Cons The ability to do a system-level scan like a traditional AV is missing and isn't a feature CrowdStrike is planning on implementing. Old school IT guys are going to be curious about this. Host management and deletion are clunky and take 45 days for a machine to fall off your subscription license.

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.

Any time I've had to use the support, it has been great! They always will recommend certain options, as well as explain what they do and why they are there. The support always gets back to me the same day, and are always pleasant to deal with. I never hesitate to call.

Crowdstrike Falcon Endpoint protection is based on AIML enhanced technology,l. It's cloud-based so users don't need to connect to their office network to get their policy synchronization done from Server to endpoints agents. Also, the Crowdstrike Falcon agent size is small and it consumes fewer resources of the machine.

I have used Barracuda Email Security in the past and FortiMail is just as effective. The interface is easy to use, and the configuration is straightforward in setting it up to work with
. Spam detection is effective, as well as malware/viruses and phishing attempts. Overall it is a great service.
Read full review Return on Investment 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. Read full review It has been positive since we do not have mail crashes and we protect the information that is transmitted by these means. The costs are very accessible. Easy deployment and implementation. Read full review
