CrowdStrike Falcon

CrowdStrike continues to be the leader of where it is today by extending the offerings that is has. While there are a number of downfalls of the product, no one other security vendor can rightfully do what CrowdStrike does. Smaller players in the game are able to "pull a feather" here and there but there is no stopping the behemoth that is CrowdStrike. So long as CrowdStrike continues to deliver on its endpoint protection capabilities and levels up their behavioral detections, they are the best buy all day long. For those looking for a company that is clear about what they are monitoring for and how, rule logic, etc.... CrowdStrike is the exact opposite. They are a complete black box that thinks detect logic is magic and protects it all as if it was intellectual property. For some organizations they will likely not care; however, for others with established security teams, this can prove to be an irritant.

Palo Alto Networks URL Filtering PAN-DB

Overall website access control via the application or specific URL works well and is pretty easy to configure out of the box assuming you purchased the license. For organizations that have a wide variety of specific user needs for one-off websites, it works fantastic in conjunction with using an active directory group to manage this. Utilizing URL Categories is a very simple and easy way to provide a wider net when specific website control is not such a factor. If URL by category is not granular enough, you also have the option to utilize access permissions or restrictions based on external dynamic lists

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.

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.

Palo Alto Networks URL Filtering PAN-DB

  • The top down URL filtering match can sometimes be tricky as the user may match something higher in the list and not receive all the permissions you intended.
  • The reporting feature for specific URL's could be more easily configured.
  • There is an additional cost for the URL filtering license.

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.

Palo support is excellent, and I have never had to wait when contacting them for support. One of the best support teams in the business, in my opinion.

Alternatives Considered

CrowdStrike Falcon

[Because of] its cloud-based architecture, complete set of features, LDAP integration and massive deployment options. The open integration with another security solution and it's almost native with all Windows flavors including Windows Server. Its Incident Response Team is a one-and-only kind of solution that makes CrowdStrike a really different competitor and a natural leader in cybersecurity market.

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 URL Filtering PAN-DB

  • Ease of user access via active directory groups has been a big time saver and reduced management overhead of having a myriad of specific rules for one off user access requests.
  • You can customize the user response pages, so for instance if a user gets a deny response page, we can provide them our direct contact info on how to request a change in the URL filtering policy thus reducing the need for help desk tickets that sit in a queue for any duration.
  • The request a category change feature at Palo works well and always happens within 24 hours. Meaning if a new site is incorrectly categorized into something you are blocking via URL filtering, you can quickly request a re-categorization and be up and running without making any policy changes to your organization's firewall.
