If having a complex environment or don't want to keep on-premises AV Infra then CrowdStrike Falcon is the best choice. It is a Next-Gen AV [that] really helps us in terms of manageability and complete insights into our environment. You don't have to adopt this solution if you are having a small infrastructure.

Since it is easy to deploy and use, it can be deployed and protect small and large companies immediately. best suitable for Hi-tech companies and Thin SecOps teams Falcon X threat intelligence and Threat Graph cloud-based data analytics provide the ability to detect advanced threats and analyze user and device data to spot anomalous activity.

The platform does its job, and it does it well. Being an EDR, which I personally think it's more of an XDR, in comparison to our previous legacy anti-malware, the legacy antivirus, it was managed to the extent that we at the security department knew that it is installed on the endpoints. However, on some servers, it would slow the system down and the important drawback was that we never received real-time "block" of threats, what we see on the CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection.

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.

Crowdstrike Falcon Endpoint protection is best suited for all sizes and types of organizations. Nowadays since most of the workforce has been working from [home] due to COVID, so it's so important to secure our user's endpoints and their data at home where we don't have network-level protection. It prevents ransomware attacks as well.

We've had users have some scripts execute at the iexplore.exe level that would have caused some issues but CS automatically blocked them and reported to us. Other times, it has inadvertently blocked items that didn't need to be blocked. Fortunately, we can work with their responsive support team to make exceptions.

From proof of concept to total implementation, it was a smooth and pleasant experience. The Falcon team was a pleasure to work with. The testing, deployment, and everything in-between was done very well and hardly any problems came up. Nothing was really less appropriate as everything was needed for our situation. It was a very time-sensitive project and everyone involved was well aware and did not let the pressure get to them as it was made very easy for decommissioning the old solution and implementing Crowdstrike Falcon.

CrowdStrike scales nicely for small to large organizations with ease. Its real-time detection works well and provides great insight into the particular threat triggered. Quick and easy sensor deployment via various methods makes installation relatively easy for most companies. It incorporates white/blacklisting features, exploits and malware detection, as well as IOA behavioral protection.

It [CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection] is well suited to scan files and especially websites that allow viruses and malware to get on laptops and into our network. I haven't found any areas it was not well suited in our environment. This product is by far the best on the market and we plan on keeping it.

CrowdStrike [Falcon Endpoint Protection] is a great candidate for endpoint protection on all computing devices such as laptops, personal computers, servers, and mobile devices. It provides insights into executables that run on the devices and what processes they consume. CrowdStrike [Falcon Endpoint Protection] also will stop those executables before any operating system interaction. Thus preventing any malware from being installed.

CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection has done a great job detecting threats in our environment. The cloud management portal is very straight forward and the information provided for potential threats is very detailed. The sensor downloads are very easy to download and apply to your environment. Prevention policies are very straight forward to setup and apply in your environment. Best of breed product. You will not be disappointed if you procure and roll out CrowdStrike!

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.

It will help you with visibility and less time to resolve, it will also focus the analysts' time on where they need to put the efforts. It cannot be perfect, it has areas for improvements, [I feel] it will not fit in your legacy environments as well as isolated networks or air-gapped devices

I have no complaints regarding CrowdStrike [Falcon Endpoint Protection]. It has stopped everything we've thrown at it. It's an extremely impressive product. Air gapped systems may struggle due to no connectivity to the internet but we don't have to deal with that in our environment.

As an EDR product, it performs extremely well. The EDR product realm is still growing so it stands to reason that there should be more competition to drive prices down. I do feel that CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection support of Linux is getting much better and I have little trouble getting it installed.

AV solutions are usually cumbersome and difficult to maintain. CrowdStrike EDR capabilities feel nothing like a traditional AV product. It is intuitive and scales very well.

CrowdStrike continues to be the leader of where it is today by extending the offerings that is has. While there are a number of downfalls of the product, no one other security vendor can rightfully do what CrowdStrike does. Smaller players in the game are able to "pull a feather" here and there but there is no stopping the behemoth that is CrowdStrike. So long as CrowdStrike continues to deliver on its endpoint protection capabilities and levels up their behavioral detections, they are the best buy all day long. For those looking for a company that is clear about what they are monitoring for and how, rule logic, etc.... CrowdStrike is the exact opposite. They are a complete black box that thinks detect logic is magic and protects it all as if it was intellectual property. For some organizations they will likely not care; however, for others with established security teams, this can prove to be an irritant.

Early on in our deployment, we had a ransomware outbreak introduced by a third-party vendor. Even with the CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection sensor not deployed to old ICS machines and running (in a technically unsupported configuration) alongside another product, it was able to provide a herd immunity of sorts and drastically limit the ransomware's movement. The EDR capabilities of the sensor were an enormous help in tracking down the source of the infection while we were able to use the network containment feature to isolate infected machines as soon as they were seen. It was very impressive and helped us get back to normal in a week with minimal loss of productivity.

CrowdStrike is a great product and company and I would highly recommend it. The technical support has been fantastic and we have worked with them weekly to understand how best to protect the company from the onboarding phase through full deployment. The process was quick, but we wanted to be cautious. Our technical team was able to provide the details we needed to ensure that we didn't cause any disruptions to critical business processes.

All in all we found crowdstrike to be a key competitor to Sophos Endpoint Security, its zero day protection was one of the top in the market and even on the gartner quadrant it was quite high. the only issue was that it was quite highly priced, if your are a huge business it more than pays for it self but a slightly smaller its not as viable.

Falcon Endpoint Protection has proven to be a very complete and robust solution. It's great for mixed environments where devices are scattered across different sites, to include remote users. It supports all the operating systems being used across the organization which is another plus. With our previous endpoint protection solution, investigation typically required access to the affected endpoint. With CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection, all the intelligence is collected and accessible from the console. The amount of information is very vast and makes for very complete threat investigations. Lastly, the user interface is very refined, and polished, which makes navigating the console very straightforward.
