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.

RackFoundry Total Security Management (discontinued)

RackFoundry Total Security Management (TSM) is suited for most companies that have the same challenge as my team had. If you are looking to purchase one security tool and spend most of your allocated budget then I would not recommend this for you. However, if you are looking for something close to a single pane of glass, (granted there is no such thing) this solution does come close as they have the main components built in such as their FW/IPS/IDS/SIEM. Before selecting RackFoundry we had two options which were: 1) Upgrade our current solution and spend an overbearing amount 2) Search for new vendors and maybe procure 1-3 devices and then manually integrate them. Because this was a unified console and integration between devices was simple, we were able to obtain 4-6 security functions and we even had some sense of security visibility via the SIEM. It's not as powerful as Splunk or LogRhythm, but it definitely does the job

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.

  • It has been my first year with Rack Foundry and at this point I have to say everything has been smooth, from implementation to support.

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.

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.

RackFoundry Total Security Management (discontinued)

Well I have experience with the big names: SecureWorks, IBM and Splunk. Individually their logging tools are much better than RackFoundry's Total Security Management. This is great for large corporations and urban cities, however not so great for municipalities, mid size businesses and companies who fluctuate between 1-7 members on their IT staff. Why? Because it takes too much of their resources and integration with other products gets a little rough as you will need to configure your preferences to theirs. When a company has stability it is great to have a name brand product, however renewals and upgrade costs can be taxing to an organization.

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.

  • Overall the product has had a negative impact. Not necessarily on our environment but in the amount of time it has taken to deploy.
