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.

Juniper SRX

Juniper SRX is well suitable for large-scale organizations and also large service providers who use Advanced security and routing features and provide service to clients. juniper is very expensive and difficult to configure.

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.

Juniper SRX

  • One JUNOS is the Juniper mantra, including for the SRXs. While not entirely true, it comes close enough that if you learn some SRX configuration tricks, they will likely work across all of your SRXs.
  • Out of the box, with no additional license required, you have a NextGen firewall, by default. You can turn off the firewall and have just a plain ole router.

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.

Juniper SRX

  • My only real criticism of the product is that it's hard to figure out how to upgrade the firmware from the CLI via TFTP via the docs, but it works great once you get it sorted.

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.

This is the one area where I have a beef with Juniper. When I called into Cisco TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I spoke with was able to resolve my issue. With Juniper TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I speak with is not able to resolve my issue, seems to almost be reading from a script, and must escalate my ticket. All of which takes time.

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.

Juniper SRX

The juniper is very versatile router/firewall box. it is an excellent router/edge device with zone based firewall.
The PaloAlto and the Fortinet have better GUIs and similar firewall featureset but they are not as flexible routers.
The Cisco CSR1kv is the only box that I would rank similar or higher to the Juniper SRX as it is as versatile as a router and supports the same security feature-set as the Juniper but it has better support and Cisco IOS is more widely adopted by the industry.

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.

Juniper SRX

  • It is a workhorse for our field operations. It provides the last touch for an ISP to the customer. The customer has no view of the device, but with the repeatability of the device, they do not need to.
  • The ability to roll out a dynamic routing protocol attached to a security zone allows elasticity to the environment that supports growth.
  • VLAN support on the inside interfaces allow this to be the only device in some smaller deployments we install these in.
