CrowdStrike Falcon

CrowdStrike continues to be the leader of where it is today by extending the offerings that is has. While there are a number of downfalls of the product, no one other security vendor can rightfully do what CrowdStrike does. Smaller players in the game are able to "pull a feather" here and there but there is no stopping the behemoth that is CrowdStrike. So long as CrowdStrike continues to deliver on its endpoint protection capabilities and levels up their behavioral detections, they are the best buy all day long. For those looking for a company that is clear about what they are monitoring for and how, rule logic, etc.... CrowdStrike is the exact opposite. They are a complete black box that thinks detect logic is magic and protects it all as if it was intellectual property. For some organizations they will likely not care; however, for others with established security teams, this can prove to be an irritant.

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.

FortiMail

  • Protects email (virus, spam, ransomware).
  • Webmail is intuitive.
  • Stable platform.
  • Integration with other FortiGate products.

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.

  • I would like to see a recommended config come base on the box.

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.

Alternatives Considered

CrowdStrike Falcon

[Because of] its cloud-based architecture, complete set of features, LDAP integration and massive deployment options. The open integration with another security solution and it's almost native with all Windows flavors including Windows Server. Its Incident Response Team is a one-and-only kind of solution that makes CrowdStrike a really different competitor and a natural leader in cybersecurity market.

FortiMail works much better than the previous product we used, McAfee Email Gateway.

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.
