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.

A great product that highlights any and all persistent footholds on the network and does a great job on breach monitoring. The support staff are great, efficient, and are able to reach out when there is an issue. Most problems are cleared out/mitigated before we even know about them. A great product to add to your security stack.

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.

Huntress

  • Lightweight sensor/agent on endpoint
  • Regular reports
  • Some explanation as to anomalous behavior

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 more SOC as a Service - service from them.
  • [I would also like] improved Intune integration, especially with Windows Defender and the rest of the suite.

CrowdStrike Falcon 8.8
Based on 13 answers
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.

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.

Artic Wolf offers a superior service with dedicated resources and personalized service. This is offered at a premium price and we decided not to invest very heavily in this type of service yet. We don't need a dedicated team with intimate knowledge of our business at this time. This is a good lower-cost option appropriate to the size of our business and our projected risk.

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.

  • [It] lowered [the] total cost of T2 security support by 15%.
  • Better security reporting saves a lot of time prepping for QBRs.
  • There is no auto-remediation, but [it] is designed like that to not interrupt the user's day.
