CrowdStrike Falcon

There aren't many scenarios where I wouldn't recommend CrowdStrike. You'll have the ability to create protection policies for different parts of your environment so that sensitive machines have as much protection as possible, and low-risk machines aren't overly locked down. The only reason I can't see someone choosing CrowdStrike is over a matter of budget. It's not the most expensive, nor is it the cheapest.

SecurityCenter is definitely the juggernaut of the industry. You don't see many shops that are not using Nessus and or SecurityCenter. As a pen tester, I do not judge shops that use Nessus as a catch all, as there are a lot of things you can get hyper focused on and a tool like this helps you see things you may have missed.

Pros

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • Detects and automatically blocks dangerous behavior on endpoints that could be indicative of malicious activity, like executing programs from the deleted items folder, executing a SSH command in silent mode from different places in the OS, etc.
  • Monitors endpoints continuously for known malware, evaluates dangerous behaviors and blocks execution based on risk tolerance settings, uses AI to draw correlations on multiple attack vectors, and has a human malware hunting element to detect known or newly detected attack vectors.
  • Is easy to deploy across a large organization and manage centrally by as few as 1 person part time.
  • This was the fastest and easiest implementation of an enterprise grade security system I have ever done. I pushed software to the endpoints on a Friday afternoon, and was complete by Noon on Monday, as each workstation came online, the installer completed, and we were protected.

Cons

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • Falcon isn't continuously scanning the machine, if something is downloaded and viewed as safe it won't be re-checked later.
  • More dashboards and information on vulnerabilities on the machines would be helpful.
  • More reports that could be given to executives would also be beneficial. There are some now, but the options are rather limited.

  • Tenable could make it easier to report on missing reg key.
  • Tenable can also make it easier to report on os level patches vs application patches.

Alternatives Considered

CrowdStrike Falcon

Business requirements, mainly. The most important/useful items we appreciate is ease of use and customer service and this product exceeds expectations in that regard. Other offers cover legacy systems and remain with that solution. However, the granularity that you can introduce to an environment is outstanding, all that without losing the simplicity of use.

Tenable.sc (formerly SecurityCenter)

We selected Tenable because is one of the best solution at the moment. Tenable is a powerful tool that we use for validation of our patching methodology. This is very helpful if you are only patching what the vendor deems as critical and then with this external validation you now have a new source for what is important. The user interface is clean and easy to navigate. Low false positives rapid signature release frequent product enhancement and updates.

  • ROI from Tenable suite of products has been well worth its cost.
  • Their pricing model has changed and they charge higher than their competitors but for the usage we have currently it serves us well.
  • Customization might not be what was expected but I believe we are using the tool to the fullest.
