    CrowdStrike Falcon

    Anyone who is looking for a leader in endpoint protection should consider CrowdStrike Falcon for sure, regardless of specific use cases. Anybody who is operating on a very lean security team that doesn't have the capability to provide 24x7x365 coverage should absolutely consider Falcon Complete. I've worked with various MSSP's in the past, but Falcon Complete is one I would definitely not lose any sleep at night knowing we're in good hands.

    Sophos Intercept X for Server

    Licensing is incredibly easy to renew - and to adjust based on usage. The interface of cloud-based management is fantastic and easy to navigate as well. Syncs up with Active Directory to get users/security groups and such for easily differentiating policies to various users. Being able to pinpoint exactly where a threat infiltrated a system (what it talked to once it did so) is a massive feature in responding to online threats. Depending on deployment size - the cost could be an issue for some smaller organizations.

    Pros

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    • Endpoint Isolation - instead of hoping an adversary was blocked in time. CrowdStrike locks down the endpoint beyond using the Windows Firewall. Allowing a whitelist of IPs brings additional management of that endpoint to another level that most other tools don't have.
    • Rich Data Recording - CrowdStrike is best described as a giant tape recorder in the sky. When it lands on the box, it truly provides insight into the those that other tools could only dream of.
    • Extensive APIs - CrowdStrike understands that they are not your only security vendor, so they have API usage for everything in their platform to automate and integrate to your heart's desire.
    • Cloud Visibility - CrowdStrike's cloud monitoring capabilities are agnostic of cloud platform. No longer does one need to worry about putting all their eggs in one basket because the endpoint tool prefers one platform over another.

    Cons

    CrowdStrike Falcon

    • The ability to do a system-level scan like a traditional AV is missing and isn't a feature CrowdStrike is planning on implementing. Old school IT guys are going to be curious about this.
    • Host management and deletion are clunky and take 45 days for a machine to fall off your subscription license.

    Sophos Intercept X for Server

    • The product can be a bit cheaper.
    • Creating a custom group is not straightforward, could be made easier (I had to ask Sophos Support for help creating the first group).
    • Scans can be a bit quicker.

    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

    Crowdstrike Falcon Endpoint protection is based on AIML enhanced technology,l. It's cloud-based so users don't need to connect to their office network to get their policy synchronization done from Server to endpoints agents. Also, the Crowdstrike Falcon agent size is small and it consumes fewer resources of the machine.

    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.
