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.

Mimecast Threat Intelligence

Mimecast is well suited for any organization whether 20 users or 20,000. The pricing on it is more than reasonable and correlates to the number of users you will have running through it. This review is specific to their threat intelligence but they also offer a slew of other pieces that can work in conjunction with their main threat offering. For organizations who are on-premise, the Mimecast Threat Intelligence basically gives you peace of mind that even if you lose your own system for any reason your email can continue to flow and be used through the Mimecast front end. Compared so some other SaaS offerings the price is ridiculously low considering it is the main part of your arsenal for arguably the most important part of your infrastructure. It is hard for me to conceive a situation where it would not be a positive only an organization's infrastructure offerings....possibly in a business where there is actually not extra money to spend on extras? If your organization manages its own email then Mimecast is appropriate for you.

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.

Mimecast Threat Intelligence

  • URL protection policies work well
  • Impersonation protection features help cut down on emulated spam and phishing attempts

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.

Mimecast Threat Intelligence

  • The system is so good I could only think of two flaws and that is after using it for 4 years. The first being that although they have a great web-based management utility the pages themselves render/work slowly such that it sometimes takes a bit of time to click around.
  • Mimecast offers an Outlook plugin or web-based method to search through old archived emails. Both are significantly slower than if you had them in a local file of some kind. It's the negative side of going to the cloud for this process but does cause some users to complain.

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.

I have always received the assistance needed, except for the fact that when Mimecast support responds to a case, they do not provide any context. So if you have 4 cases open, you have no idea which case they are responding to. Definitely a shortcoming of the threat intel would be their support, not so much the product.

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.

Mimecast Threat Intelligence

When we decided to take the plunge on a SaaS offering like Mimecast we reviewed one other company that offers similar protection and archiving capabilities. Proofpoint seems to be a capable competitor and I guess one if one goes with them they will see similar savings and results however we saw no tangible reason to risk by going with the competitor when pricing was so reasonable on the known services we would get with Mimecast.

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.
