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.

  • Skybox manages compliance for firewalls better than we have seen with other tools.
  • Skybox integrates into standard change management tools so change control can flow through Skybox and assist with all decisions to implement a change.

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

Skybox Security
  • User experience. On the first approach, it's not the simplest tool that I have ever used.
  • Web-based console. In my honest opinion it's very important [to have] this type of functionality to extend the use of Skybox.
  • Too many updates of the product.

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.

It is user friendly and quite easy to use. It centralizes all info in one portal and generates good reports to help you visualize and assess your change management decision

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.

The support team needs to be improved especially in their response and awareness about recent bugs in their solution. For example, sometimes they are not aware about how to integrate specific vendors like Microsoft Azure and they still don't have answers to it until now.

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.

Alternatives Considered
CrowdStrike
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.

Skybox Security
  • Overall ROI is good as this product is an augmentation for us but we already have a mature security program with an experienced security team so the ROI is high.
