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.

Sophos XG Firewall

This is the best product for small-size organizations with a low budget that want advanced and deep-level security features. Sandboxing and advanced malware protection are the most valuable features available on Sophos devices. Other features like applications and web content make your organization more secure, and you can put more restrictions on users.

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.

Sophos XG Firewall

  • You can scan every packet deeply through sandboxing.
  • Control the user traffic through content filtering.
  • Put the restrictions on user web traffic through web filtering.
  • Control any type of malware through anti virus.

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 XG Firewall

  • If using Endpoint security and the Firewall it would be nice to have an easier back and forth between the portals rather than have two separate tabs open. Especially if using more than one in multiple locations.
  • If dealing with different revisions options are moved around and sometimes in places that doesn't normally seem like they should be there.

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.

Honestly we didn't get the premium support from them, but our partner has been supportive. Online forums are also a good place to learn things from.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Sophos XG Firewall

We have been a Sophos customer for the most part but i have seen some other offerings from SonicWall, Barracuda, and Cisco. While they all offer nice products, we've always been content with our Sophos XG firewalls, especially as they release more and more features/etc.

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.
