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.

Sophos Intercept X for Server

Since this is a server protection software, its use cases are limited to server infrastructure. If you have a number of servers to protect, I would really recommend this product. it is easy to use (for the most part), it is lightweight and reliable. Another plus is the cloud management console and the ease of creating different policies and applying to different server types.

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.

  • Easy monitoring

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.

Sophos Intercept X for Server

  • Reporting isn't as detailed as it could be.
  • The wait times for support are very long.
  • There is no way to push the installer out.

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.

Support is generally great, however, they can be a bit more flexible and faster to respond. Considering I have purchased a few hundred licenses, I think my support desk deserves to be at least able to schedule calls with the support, which is not always the case. Apart from that, they are always helpful, knowledgeable and have, so far, resolved any and all issues that we have been needing help with.

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.

Sophos Intercept X for Server

We aleady had few of the applications from Sophos, so it was a natural decision to try out Sophos Intercept X for Server. So for this specific case we went for the trial to check the performance and found that it did an amazing job. That's also why we didn't evaluate any other software

  • It has helped with our older PC's CPU usage.
