    CrowdStrike Falcon

    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.

    Mimecast Threat Intelligence

    I think Mimecast is great for companies who want granular control over their email. Once it is setup, it really does just run along without IT needing to get involved too much. Any time we have 'issues' - such as incorrectly blocked emails or attachments, we can easily figure out what we need to do and how to fix it. Mimecast is great for teams who don't want to sit there all day and manage and look at emails. It would suit a large organisation who want deep control.

    Pros

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    • 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.

    Mimecast Threat Intelligence

    • Because all incoming and outgoing (with journaling setup for internal email) go through Mimecast it is a one-stop-shop for searching out emails from past months or years. It is light years better than using local archives such as .pst files.
    • Since they touch all incoming email Mimecast is excellent our filtering out spam, malware and virus emails before it even gets to your server whether on-premise or in the cloud.

    Cons

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    • 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.

    Mimecast Threat Intelligence

    • The interface for the threat intel dashboard could use some updating
    • Slowness in the console persists occassionally

    It works perfectly and is really easy to manage when you understand the menu and how it works. It really is 'set and forget' with minor changes needed from time to time to blacklist and whitelist senders and domains. It makes our life really easy and gives us a lot of data to understand how or business and users operate.

    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.

    Mimecast has a 24 hours phone hotline available to assist you with issues as they arise. This is the typical help desk situation where you reach level one and go to level two if this issue is extensive however I have found their level one techs to more than capable of dealing with most issues I have called about. The only negative I would mention is that their email support is less hardy when it comes to response time so I have grown to realize that calling is the only way to get timely support.

    I was shown the areas we would need to use and understand, along with the settings. It was perfect as it didn't go too deep.

    Alternatives Considered

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    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.

    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.

    Mimecast Threat Intelligence

    • Saves time and manpower as the console can easily be managed by 1 person
    • Using the continuity feature could potentially save an email outage from preventing an organization from conducting business.
