CrowdStrike Falcon

It's a great solution with a massive deployment scenario with a lot of endpoints, and where the time is an issue and you need to be protected ASAP - thanks to its cloud-based architecture you will be up and running in almost 10 minutes (literally). There are no signatures, further refinements, or additional hardware and servers required. An always or almost always offline [scenario] is not well-suited for Falcon Pro.

Zix Email Threat Protection

Zix is great. In our organization, we have some staff that are very techy and some where technology is a struggle. Zix just works. End users can send emails and Zix scans and quarantines emails if needed. Staff and IT admins are alerted, IT can review the message, and staff has the ability to self-release (if configured that way). After reviewing several other vendors/solutions. Zix is an incredible cloud-hosted solution, so no need to have a server onsite. Customer service has been great on setting up the initial ruleset, and the few times we needed some additional help on pulling reports. Reporting is also great on Zix. You can track messages, see if a message was read (if using the secure portal), expire the message, etc.

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.

Zix Email Threat Protection

  • Makes it easy for those receiving emails to create an account and retrieve the email.
  • Peace of mind knowing emails are secure, and can be tracked.
  • Monitoring inbound email threats is easy.
  • Support has been very quick resolving or explaining support tickets I've created.
Dane Spoelker | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
Mark Sauer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zix Email Threat Protection

  • Ease of use. Other competitors platform is WAY easier to use and customize.
  • You have to cover THE ENTIRE ORGANIZATION with coverage, even though only a handful will need to use email encryption
  • The Zix Protect platform is a complete joke to customize and use.

It has almost perfectly surpassed all of our requirements, and interactions their people are a delight. We expect to continue using Zix to provide streamlined encrypted document delivery and for sensitive communications. It is also helpful that many lending institutions are standardized on the platform, making the high level of interaction that we have be as seamless as possible.

Zix is super user friendly for both our staff and the recipients of the messages. Logs are present, of course, for auditing when the need arises. The management portal is easy to use, also. You can use the service as is after install or make customizations that would better suit your business and workflow.

The availability of Zix has been very good. We have never had an outage due to an issue with the Zix portal or service. They plan their upgrades for off hours and do a good job of communicating any planned upgrades or outages well in advance. Zix has always been available when we need it.

there is no lag in transferring large encrypted documents. Real Estate transactions are horribly time sensitive and stressful. Zix performs flawlessly. It is always there, always responds without delay. It is probably dark magic.

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.

Zix is very good about response times and information. They even proactively e-mail us about known issues. I have never had an issue go unresolved, and the support team tends to answer quickly unless it's a strange, complicated request. The only time that happened was doing a search through logs, and that was entirely on me and my unfamiliarity with their flavor of Linux.

The training is very thorough and well individualized for our application. It was done online with the trainer on telephone.I felt that they were truly interested in my success, and provided resources for follow up. The trainer was easily understood with thorough knowledge of the product and giving helpful advice for implementation.

The online training we received from Zix was very good. They did a good job of walking us through the entire setup process and also provided good documentation as a reference. It was valuable because we worked directly with our configuration and portal during the training. We weren't just working with a hypothetical example.

Zix was already implemented when I started. I migrated our Zix to the cloud version years later. Zix support did a great job assisting me in moving to the cloud. They worked with me the entire way, and it was a painless process. Moving to the cloud was a great recommendation. They were really thinking of our best interests.

Alternatives Considered

CrowdStrike Falcon

Overall I found CrowdStrike Falcon's EDR capabilities superior to their competitors. Also, the user interface has taken its time to mature and is very intuitive and has a natural flow. Policy configuration and assignment as well as the features and settings within the config were more complete and met all our requirements. Lastly, the agent plays nice with everything else running on systems. We hardly ever have issues of Falcon interfering with users or services, and false positives are kept at a minimum.

Zix Email Threat Protection

Even though employees are highly skeptical and apprehensive to use the product, I try to trust that the Zix scanning is doing its job and protecting what it needs to. I certainly worry about it on a regular basis though.

It has no problem with our workload. We depend heavily on the ability to transfer large documents securely through the system and it has never let us down.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zix Email Threat Protection

  • It keeps our client data secure in transit, aiding us in compliance to HIPPA and other required standards, which also lends to peace of mind.
  • It greatly minimizes the time spent combing through email to sort and deal with junk/spam.
  • It minimizes the risk of employees inadvertently clicking infected links from within emails, opening our network to larger threats. This alone saves time and money as it decreases the time spent by our IT department in dealing with information security issues and system recovery that we might otherwise face.
