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.

Palo Alto Networks Traps

Traps is a fantastic tool for malware prevention and works great alongside traditional A/V. Integration with other Palo Alto gear is also very nice, as it can tap into other products/tools for enhanced functionality. Traps is great at quarantining malicious code to a single source and stops the spread of malware that uses network shares to spread very well.

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.

Palo Alto Networks Traps

  • Malware detection without existing signatures
  • Test detonation of unknown files in the cloud and locally
  • Prevention of threats that traditional AV can't block

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.

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.

The team that supports us are tremendous, they have helped us in upgrading the versions. The upgrade didn’t go on smoothly however their support to fix the issues are great. And lots of help from them to advice us on better use the Traps. Exceptional supports have been given to us by the team.

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.

Palo Alto Networks Traps

Traps and its integration with central management tools by Palo Alto and wildfire was a better fit for our environment. Others provided similar levels of protection but in some cases did not live up to expectations as traps did. Palo Alto also worked with us to better Traps, its management tool, and deployment issues. Other vendors were not as forthcoming with support

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.

Palo Alto Networks Traps

  • Traps had an agent upgrade get "stuck" that required me to manually reboot servers into safe mode to remediate it. Traps/Cortex ROI is by far negative. I'm pretty well-paid. Requiring multiple hours of my time to remediate your [bad] product entirely destroys any benefit.
