CrowdStrike Falcon

It's a great solution with a massive deployment scenario with a lot of endpoints, and where the time is an issue and you need to be protected ASAP - thanks to its cloud-based architecture you will be up and running in almost 10 minutes (literally). There are no signatures, further refinements, or additional hardware and servers required. An always or almost always offline [scenario] is not well-suited for Falcon Pro.

Recorded Future

Recorded Future is mainly beneficial to the SOC. As part of the Monitoring team, Recorded Future makes the investigation of the alarms a lot easier for me. It can show the reputation of the IP/domain or even hashes which helps me redirect my focus to potentially malicious network activities.

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.

Recorded Future

  • Everything they find is also available in their own cache. So for example if a pastebin expired, you can still view it later on.
  • The risk score of vulnerabilities shows actual malicious activity. Image the CVS-Score is medium, but there is a lot of exploit chatter, you want to prioritize fixing this vulnerability.
  • Their watchlists are easy to set up and offer monitoring your tech-stack, peers, persons of special interest, etc.

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.

Recorded Future

  • For the Browser extension, since the main purpose is to present information with regards to the IP, I think it's best to give us an idea of where the IP originated/some additional information about the organization it belongs to.

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.

I've had an issue with their browser-plugin which didn't want to authenticate correctly. RF's support could arrange for a session with me and identify and solve the issue. I was very pleased how serious they took my problems and also how knowledgeable they are.
If I have more general questions they quickly reply and most likely also have a solution at hand.

Alternatives Considered

CrowdStrike Falcon

Overall I found CrowdStrike Falcon's EDR capabilities superior to their competitors. Also, the user interface has taken its time to mature and is very intuitive and has a natural flow. Policy configuration and assignment as well as the features and settings within the config were more complete and met all our requirements. Lastly, the agent plays nice with everything else running on systems. We hardly ever have issues of Falcon interfering with users or services, and false positives are kept at a minimum.

Recorded Future

To be honest I use Recorded Future together with VirusTotal to fully understand the possible threats on our network. However, Recorded Future has a better threat intelligence feed that I prefer to use as a reference in finalizing my investigations

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.

Recorded Future

  • We've been able to identify leaked credentials and close those accounts off.
  • We've also been able to identify malware being distributed or spam being sent out by customers using our infrastructure. Again we could shut off those accounts.
  • Their domain-monitoring allows us to identify typo-squats and issue domain-takedowns for those (or at least add them to our monitoring / detection)
