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.

KnowBe4 PhishER

Highly recommended if you're using the other KnowBe4 tools as this really can save staff all kinds of time. Would recommend this to anyone using the automated phishing plugin for their users. If you can fit it into the security budget its totally worth its asking price. The company has a deep background of email security and the like.

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.

KnowBe4 PhishER

  • Cloud web interface requires no client to be installed
  • Good response from support when issues crop up
  • LDAP integration to import all your users in one shot

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.

KnowBe4 PhishER

  • It seems a lot of new messages are not categorized yet so newer phishing messages may have to be hand checked.
  • As an add-on to our existing KnowBe4 products, it was a good deal but on its own is expensive.
  • The interface is nice but makes it tough to get low-level detailed info.

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.

KnowBe4 PhishER

To be honest, this is the first time I have used a tool like this. So I can't compare it to other tools that offer this kind of service. I did do my due diligence and based on several comparative studies and research, I decided to go with KnowBe4 because they are the industry leader.

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.

KnowBe4 PhishER

  • TONS of time saved scanning and looking through submissions by hand
  • After setup it pretty much runs itself without intervention
  • Its costly and does increase security budget
