    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.

    Proofpoint Email Protection

    Well suited:Proofpoint does a pretty good job at protecting us from spam emails. I was able to block a lot of emails coming from SendGrid by blocking SendGrid emails with a custom spam filter. However, SendGrid has a lot of legit emails too so I was able to create another rule to allow those emails from certain people, then block the rest. That way business need was met but spam emails are blocked. Less AppropriateIf you are trying to monitor internal to internal emails Proofpoint is probably a little over featured for that.

    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.

    Proofpoint Email Protection

    • Spam - catches these emails before hitting the inbox.
    • Daily digest - provides users with a list of the emails that were blocked and allows them to choose to release them if they are legitimate emails.
    • Ensures that emails coming into our organization is safe for our users and verifies the email is coming from stated senders email server.
    Laurie Keith | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    Proofpoint Email Protection

    • Proofpoint could offer more frequent training opportunities to customers at all levels of expertise.
    • Proofpoint can always continue to strive to keep its product a leader in the industry.
    • Proofpoint's support site could be overhauled to provide a more logical flow.

    Very robust and solid product in protecting our emails. The engineers who assisted with our implementation was very knowledgable and great to work with. Easy to use by end-users. Administration and management are also easy for IT. Great dashboard and reporting tools for business reviews.

    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.

    We use ProofPoint support quite often to fix issues and assist with setting up features and rules. Each time we have created a ticket, they have been very helpful and respectful. Each ticket has been treated with the appropriate SLA time and attention. We also enjoy the regular check-ins from the engineers when tickets are open but we get busy with other tasks.

    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.

    We previously used halon anti-spam, which lasted us well until our organization really started to grow and it was not able to keep up with the amount of mail we were receiving. The support is also nothing compared to Proofpoint's professional services offering. Halon was also not able to have the complex rules that Proofpoint can offer.

    You can add a lot of agents to your environment if you need them. And you can operate hardware appliances and virtual appliances in the same cluster.

    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.

    Proofpoint Email Protection

    • Having easy-to-reach backups of all employee emails has made Proofpoint worth it by itself. That plus the countless times that spam/malicious emails did not make it through to the intended person that could have potentially cost the organization a lot of money.
