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.

  • Clear field and data selection
  • Customizable queries
  • Efficient response time to commands

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.

  • The interface requires some patience as navigation takes some getting used to
  • Some better report creation wizards would help greately

Based on 13 answers
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.

Alternatives Considered

CrowdStrike Falcon

CrowdStrike is the only software we have used or tried that actually held up to what they said they would do and could do. I have tried multiple different products and was able to sneak exploits by them all while using and testing them - I was not able to do so with CrowdStrike.

Return on Investment

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • It doesn't cover legacy systems.
  • An update stopped a critical service that took about 5 hours restart; investigations are still happening.
  • Mobile compatibility arrived too late and the integration wouldn't be as robust as the main MDM solution. It didn't meet the requirements.

Symantec Control Compliance Suite

  • Has shown where better risk management policies can be implemented
  • Has increased response times
