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.

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection proved to be near ideal for a secondary solution. Running it in conjunction with a traditional antivirus solution provides the best endpoint protection in my experience. Also, even though the reports are a bit lacking in detail, they still make a good starting point when investigating incidents.

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.
Randy Munroe | TrustRadius Reviewer

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

  • The biggest plus with this software is that you can manage all the clients from a management console. You can push the install/updates through it. If the client cannot connect to the management console, then it will update directly from their website. This means you are always up to date and protected.
  • The software on the client machine has very low overhead so it doesn't affect the performance.
  • You can create policies based on the types of users or by the department. You can customize these policies so it will let you micro-manage the clients.

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.

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

  • Updates from one version to another can be challenging. Regular updates are a must.
  • We have not had any issues, but Malwarebytes has gotten some poor reviews on their support in industry publications.

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.

Whenever I've had a query for the support team, they have got back to me very quickly, and given me very well detailed advice on fixing whatever the issue I had was. They also pointed me to help documents and such where I could find more information if I needed

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.

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

I stick with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection because of the simplicity of deploying and managing the product and policies. Most importantly - because it works to defend our network and systems so well that we have had little to no need for intervening on any items. Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection uses minimal resources to run and actively scan all your traffic and inbound mail to ensure only good things are getting in and all the bad things are staying out. Most security stops there. But with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection, it also makes sure that all your essential data stay in there and does not get out to malicious activity. Updating and pushing new policies or changes is the easiest of all the security software. Without needing to stage anything and having multiple methods of scanning your network to detect endpoints, Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection becomes the quickest and easiest security software to deploy in a network.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

  • We are more confident that this dedicated solution protects our systems better than other all-in-one solutions, reducing our ALE.
  • Updates to Microsoft Defender are making this less and less attractive to small businesses.
  • Updates to security suites like Symantec Endpoint Protection are making this less attractive.
