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.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

McAffee ePolicy Orchestrator is very well suited in large environments. You can load your updates to the repository and deploy them to every node on your network. It has great reporting and auditing features. You can control your users and groups all from the System Tree. DLP is great for USB devices. You can restrict all the ports on a computer and open them up for a limited time to plug in a device. EPO is to bulky for small networks.

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.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

  • Static malware scans for known bad processes and files works well and can be schedules on endpoints easily
  • Preventing users from accessing USB drives and other peripherals is easily configured. We can also allow users to access to USB drives with user codes for the times they need it for business reasons.
  • ePO provides access into our MSME software so that we're not managing many different products from different locations.
  • In recent years the console has gotten much easier to navigate even though there is a ton of information to be accessed.

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.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

  • It has a slow mechanism when adding custom threat feeds. For example, if McAfee didn't have a signature or detection about a new virus and we try to add it to our console it is like a really big process in adding that to our available signatures.
  • Whenever a scan is performed, the system CPU utilization goes up 100 percent.
  • Installation fails due to difference in timestamp when we try to shuffle between packages.

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.

McAfee support is definitely GREAT! It is one of the best technical support on a business level. GOLD support is recommended to business. Their website is easy and quick to create a ticket. Their technical team usually responds right away with an email or call. Via call and web they provide a full and complete support until the issue is resolved. The best, most of the time they explain in detail what is the issue, the reason and how to resolve it.

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.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

The price and the licensing options are very good. We were able to negotiate our pricing with plenty of flexibility ePO is one of the best administration console in the security world. Capability of deep customization are one of the biggest advantage. Ability to run PDF reports for protection status for agents.

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.

  • Keep your network environment up and running.
  • Additional resources (consulting or training) may be required if not familiar with the product.
  • Very complex to setup and configure ( training may be required).
  • Once configured, it will take care of almost 80% of your tasks.
