    CrowdStrike

    Anyone who is looking for a leader in endpoint protection should consider CrowdStrike Falcon for sure, regardless of specific use cases. Anybody who is operating on a very lean security team that doesn't have the capability to provide 24x7x365 coverage should absolutely consider Falcon Complete. I've worked with various MSSP's in the past, but Falcon Complete is one I would definitely not lose any sleep at night knowing we're in good hands.

    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

    • Endpoint Isolation - instead of hoping an adversary was blocked in time. CrowdStrike locks down the endpoint beyond using the Windows Firewall. Allowing a whitelist of IPs brings additional management of that endpoint to another level that most other tools don't have.
    • Rich Data Recording - CrowdStrike is best described as a giant tape recorder in the sky. When it lands on the box, it truly provides insight into the those that other tools could only dream of.
    • Extensive APIs - CrowdStrike understands that they are not your only security vendor, so they have API usage for everything in their platform to automate and integrate to your heart's desire.
    • Cloud Visibility - CrowdStrike's cloud monitoring capabilities are agnostic of cloud platform. No longer does one need to worry about putting all their eggs in one basket because the endpoint tool prefers one platform over another.

    Cons

    CrowdStrike

    • The ability to do a system-level scan like a traditional AV is missing and isn't a feature CrowdStrike is planning on implementing. Old school IT guys are going to be curious about this.
    • Host management and deletion are clunky and take 45 days for a machine to fall off your subscription license.

    KnowBe4

    • #1 thing KnowBe4 needs to improve is using their PhishML to proactively find and quarantine phishing emails rather than only relying on the reactive click by a user. There's still a huge risk hole they are not filled by not providing this functionality.

      Support Rating

      CrowdStrike

      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

      Crowdstrike Falcon Endpoint protection is based on AIML enhanced technology,l. It's cloud-based so users don't need to connect to their office network to get their policy synchronization done from Server to endpoints agents. Also, the Crowdstrike Falcon agent size is small and it consumes fewer resources of the machine.

      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.
