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.

IBM Resilient Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)

This is well suited for a high-level application with 1000+ users that work across timezones of EST, IST, and APT where actions can be taken across 24/7 applications. This tool is less appropriate for the small scale application for which is not much is needed. For example, where the application is used only by users 2-5 users on around 10+.

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.

IBM Resilient Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)

  • Increasing the severity of incidents when threats or outages happened and informing the IT team/management to take action. Our application is a .net one which is a legacy with SQL server. The number of times it is more vulnerable to threats and the action to be taken was identified using this tool.
  • Prior to using this tool, we were informed of threats by IBM customer support and we took action in around 2 to 3 hours to prevent using NOC team support. However, after we deployed this tool we were able to respond quickly based on the action plan provided along with threat level and severities.
  • Prior to deploying this tool, our incidents were provided by IBM customer support with no necessary information on the same. After this tool was installed in our organization, we were able to get the security alerts instantly and take action with the severity level for threats/attacks.

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.

  • Not anything so far since we are highly dependent on this tool. Probably reduce the number of small alerts we get.

CrowdStrike Falcon 8.6
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.

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.

IBM Resilient Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)

I have selected this since we are highly dependent on this tool for our applications in healthcare where 1600+ users are working across the world where we need a high level of security and actions to be taken when it is more vulnerable.

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.

  • Integration with existing technologies optimizes the experience. Due to this, it is well suited for most of the technologies across the market.
  • Since the threat was resolved on time with priority, downtime is less which in turns increases the ROI in the applications across the department.
