At the time of purchase CrowdStrike provided the best featureset and value proposition for the organisation. The cloud first nature of the product and the mix of heuristic and behaviour based detection technologies was better than anything else that we looked at.

  • BlackBerry Protect (CylancePROTECT) and BlackBerry Optics (CylanceOPTICS)
we felt that this was a new refresh as what we had prior was best at the time and there are new and modern approaches to keep the end points secure

CrowdStrike Falcon is the market leader so is head and shoulders above these products. These products work of old school methodologies of detecting malware which are no longer fit for purpose.

It was the easiest to deploy and manage, while the dashboard was also very clear and precise in terms of useful information.
Another major reason in selection CrowdStrike Falcon was its AI and ML detection capabilities which really impressed us during evaluation. Other tools analysed were not too bad either but seemed complex to operate and use.

Having a single console to manage all the different modules is a great plus against all the other competitors.
Also, being a cloud native solution, single agent for everyhing, and the ease of use of the whole solution is a plus.
Even the extras as CS Falcon, which makes you able to manage things using powershell scripts.

We moved on from Symantec and compared with Sophos - the impact (performance) to the endpoint is very minimal - our engineers always fight new security tools. During testing, they were running CrowdStrike for 2 weeks when they asked when we would install the new EDR tool to their devices.

Before choosing CrowdStrike Falcon, we evaluated alternative solutions such as Symantec and McAfee. However, CrowdStrike Falcon's cloud-native approach, advanced threat hunting capabilities, and real-time visibility into endpoint activities set it apart as the optimal choice for our security infrastructure. Great Proactive identification and mitigation of potential threats.

Next Gen antivirus solution. You don't need your own infrastructure for the service. Deployment is very easy and fast. Only one sensor on the clients with very low CPU impact. Easy multi factor deployment. Good overview in the console over your entire envirement. Very good and fast malware protection of the clients.

At the time we evaluated the products, CrowdStrike was clearly leading in this space. It's possible since that time so other products have added additional features and may be equivalent.

CrowdStrike Falcon's cloud-native architecture gives it an edge in terms of scalability, ease of deployment, and real-time threat intelligence updates. The user interface of Falcon is intuitive and offers clear visibility into our organization's threat landscape. Our team felt more comfortable navigating Falcon's dashboard. CrowdStrike Falcon's API and integration capabilities meant we could easily incorporate it into our existing tech stack, enhancing our other tools. Falcon's seemed more flexible for our specific needs.

We previously used Carbon Black to protect our endpoints. We were not happy with the results of Carbon Black after a certain security incident happened and how the third-party SOC was managing the monitoring and alerting for our systems. CrowdStrike was selected because we believe they have a better product and higher commitment to success than what we were previously implementing.

I think Carbon black is as good a product as CrowdStrike Falcon. We went with CrowdStrike Falcon because it was cheaper at the time and then stuck with it when Dell bought Carbon Black. I find that the logging and information is much better that Microsoft defender, many of the times we had defender telling us something is wrong but when you try to drill down to see what the problem is you can't there is no information about what causes the problem just that there was a problem.

Since CrowdStrike is a cloud-native platform, it reduces the need to maintain many servers on-premise and worldwide architecture. McAfee uses very high CPU and RAM resources on endpoints and servers.
Identity protection feature is a huge step towards zero trust implementation.

We still utilize Malwarebytes, CrowdStrike has proven to catch more malware than Symantec (although with more false positives). CrowdStrike has not to date caused any issues with applications running on our endpoints and is not even noticed by our end users. Deployment seems to be easier and more efficient than other vendors.

CrowdStrike Falcon provided more capability in a consolidated manner with reduced costing overall. Additionally, they have better presence and support in Australia region for any issues that might arise.
