I would highly recommend CrowdStrike Falcon to any organization serious about bolstering its cybersecurity defenses. The platform's effectiveness in threat detection, proactive mitigation, and scalability make it a valuable asset in today's ever-evolving threat landscape. Despite some learning curves and integration challenges, the return on investment and the overall security enhancement justify its strong recommendation.

If your email admins spend time manually pulling malicious emails, this tool will save them countless hours of work and will do it for them 24 x 7. So if a user receives a malicious email after-hours, TRAP will auto pull it from the affected user's mailbox and potentially save you from an IT disaster.

Cons
CrowdStrike
  • Sometimes updates to sensor versions fail, which requires manual intervention by internal staff members
  • The variety of different administrative privilege levels is vast and sometimes confusing
  • Proactive notifications confirming the health of the environment would be great instead of just reporting on potential issues

Usability
CrowdStrike
I think it is a complete and very trustful XDR platform, with very few False Positives. It is very well supported by highly skilled professionals on all levels: from pre-sales engineers, Customer Account Managers and support engineers.

Support Rating
CrowdStrike
Support is generally pretty fast and gets right to the issue. We haven't had to use them much, fortunately, but the issues and questions we've had are usually answered quickly. The customer success manager/account manager you're assigned will also follow up with you on a regular cadence to ensure you're getting the most out of the subscription. There's not a whole lot of room to improve, other than the general confusion about what is/what is not covered in custom packages you're subscribed to. The initial purchase took much longer because of a package name changes and realignments of different modules into those packages.

In-Person Training
CrowdStrike
There is limited amount of learning that can be completed in an in-person training available. In my opinion, the self-paced learning provided by Falcon portal is more useful over in-person training. The support from Falcon is great and useful to overcome difficulties, if any.

The training provided by Crowdstrike Falcon is complete in terms of the depth of technical knowledge and teaches the users about going through with the platform. There are lots of jargons for different tools that Crowdstrike Falcon has and this training teaches them all which helps in managing the platform better. Plus, the regular knowledge checks are also very helpful for the end user.

CrowdStrike Falcon's cloud-native architecture gives it an edge in terms of scalability, ease of deployment, and real-time threat intelligence updates. The user interface of Falcon is intuitive and offers clear visibility into our organization's threat landscape. Our team felt more comfortable navigating Falcon's dashboard. CrowdStrike Falcon's API and integration capabilities meant we could easily incorporate it into our existing tech stack, enhancing our other tools. Falcon's seemed more flexible for our specific needs.

Return on Investment
CrowdStrike
  • Centralized resource management means we need less tools to do the same job.
  • EDR data is massive and has to be factored into the overall cost of the product. You are exponentially punished for more devices.
  • CS has allowed larger coverage over devices and has discovered massive pockets of no protections.

  • Chances of phishing attacks has decreased.
  • Your employees don't have to do anything, so no impact on productivity.
