    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.

    Palo Alto Panorama

    We have multiple internal and external firewalls at our headquarters as well as firewalls at our remote locations. Users are always needing to access services and systems at our headquarters and when they tell us they don't have access we can use Panorama to view the traffic and see where they are getting denied. Without Panorama we would need to log into each firewall and see if they are getting denied with Panorama we get an overview of was is happening and it's amazing.

    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.

    Palo Alto Panorama

    • Being able to create common rules that can be maintained on multiple firewalls is very beneficial to our management of the different functional needs of the firewalls.
    • Using templates to manage regional requirements is helpful for rolling out changes in the networking side, from user managemnet globally to SEIM/Syslog collection regionally, being able to stack templates helps deliver the necessary changes across multiple firewalls.
    • Panorama's Dashboard and ACC provides useful information that can be set to see All firewalls, or just certain groups of firewalls. Since each group of firewalls has different applications running through them, being able to isolate one group at a time helps identify if there are errant devices causing unexpected traffic, and what type of traffic it is.

    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.

    Palo Alto Panorama

    • Unexpected log outs outside the normal timeout window seem to happen often
    • Better reporting, really a downside to the product
    • Scheduling would be a great feature

    Panorama has given us much more than we expected and the support for the product, by Palo Alto Networks has been great. We would like to see some improvements that I mentioned in another review, like scheduling changes, but overall Panorama has provided a very capable product and we are very happy with it.

    You can do anything via the GUI without going to the CLI. High real time security as every five minutes, it updates the list of phishing websites. High protection as the firewall communicates with the cloud, a machine running artificial intelligence helps to detect malware or other threats.

    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.

    They have always been able to resolve our issues promptly. We have only had one critical issue, and it was handled expediently.

    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.

    Palo Alto Panorama

    In the past, we have used Cisco firewalls with Firepower and Palo Alto Panorama is easier to manage and more user-friendly. Also the performance of end firewalls/devices is much better than Cisco if you enable all features on them.

    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 Panorama

    • Reduced a lot of threats by blocking poorly reputed domains automatically, saving us a lot of time, which we would have otherwise spent on putting it on the manual blacklist.
    • Helped us in almost discontinuing with the Cisco Firepower, saving a lot of money, with its powerful IDS feature.
