    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.

    It is valuable software for when it comes to a large or medium organization, since it helps to protect the endpoints, but as the number of servers increases its value increases. However, it is important to keep in mind that when it comes to low end devices, its protection can affect their performance. This is because it is not a software with a very light agent.

    Pros

    CrowdStrike

    • 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.

    • USB Control. Only allow certain usb devices to be connected and allow on certain users to have the ability to us usb keys.
    • Easy of Administration, configuration and installation.
    • Support is excellent. When I've called in for help they go above and beyond to help you resolve you issue or answer your questions on a certain configuration.

    Cons

    CrowdStrike

    • 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.

    Broadcom

    • The interface can be a little wonky at times and can slow to a crawl when trying to do too much.
    • Having to manually (or use another tool such as Symantec Enterprise Manager) to upgrade the endpoints is not the best way to implement clients.
    • Pricing for purchase and upgrade is a little strange and takes more thinking than it should.
    • They were recently purchased by Broadcomm and the new regime has been making some changes that appear to be more for larger customers.

      Symantec Advanced Threat Protection has done a sufficient job at identifying true positives. However, the UI could be improved and the amount of false positives is a little too frequent for my liking

      CrowdStrike

      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.

      No, besides to review documentation prior to beginning. That is what helped lead to a smooth implementation

      Alternatives Considered

      CrowdStrike

      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.

      Symantec Advanced Threat Protection is one of the best compared to other current vendors & competitors. Symantec Advanced Threat Protection has the most complete features such as content analysis, network detection & response, web filtering, email detection & response, content analysis, web isolation, & more. It had slow development at the beginning but the acceleration for the last few years was incredible.

      Return on Investment

      CrowdStrike

      • 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.

      • We haven't ever suffered from a serious security compromise, and I owe that to our Symantec AV.
      • Once installed and set up, it's difficult to pull it out of the environment and try something else, so it has a way of keeping itself stable.
      • Some customers have a hard time paying the price because they don't "see" it do anything, and wonder what they are paying for.
