  • Protection against modern threats.
  • Elimination of false positives.
  • Very well-managed solution, the complete team is great to work with!
  • Device control capabilities (USB device control) are easy to implement.
  • The UI while very comprehensive is a bit cluttered.
  • Could be a little more intuitive to set up device groups.
  • A little clearer definition of what is available to admins in the complete offering would be nice.

  • Initial detection through their various proprietary methodologies.
  • The graphical display of the malware and the potential impact chain is fantastic.
  • We realize sensor updating is necessary, but they seem to be very frequent.
  • It is not a cheap solution.

  • Provides actionable detection data.
  • Lightweight and forgiving agent. We've had zero failures when deploying the agent across our organization.
  • The searches in the Discovery module are extremely useful for reporting purposes. For us, it satisfies a lot of HiTrust requirements.
  • Some search speeds are pretty slow. Having to wait a long time for results.
  • Sometimes [ I feel] the data being presented in detection is not obvious as to why it is being considered malicious.

  • Endpoint Isolation - instead of hoping an adversary was blocked in time. CrowdStrike locks down the endpoint beyond using the Windows Firewall. Allowing a whitelist of IPs brings additional management of that endpoint to another level that most other tools don't have.
  • Rich Data Recording - CrowdStrike is best described as a giant tape recorder in the sky. When it lands on the box, it truly provides insight into the those that other tools could only dream of.
  • Extensive APIs - CrowdStrike understands that they are not your only security vendor, so they have API usage for everything in their platform to automate and integrate to your heart's desire.
  • Cloud Visibility - CrowdStrike's cloud monitoring capabilities are agnostic of cloud platform. No longer does one need to worry about putting all their eggs in one basket because the endpoint tool prefers one platform over another.
  • Vulnerability Management - CrowdStrike is trying really hard in this space but it is really falling short. Often times the data is off or incorrect. Reporting is lack luster, and it wasn't until recently that API usage to pull vulnerabilities was introduced.
  • The Little Things - CrowdStrike is plagued by a number of nice to haves that after a while is irritating at best. Items such as determining primary IP address for the device is selected at "random".
  • Nickel and Diming - It is one thing to have a product and sell that product and all the functions it does and providing a service for said product... its another when you nickel and dime every. new. feature. that. is. release.

  • It's strong with its EDR capabilities. It's able to collect very useful information for an investigation.
  • Very lightweight agent doesn't interfere with user activities.
  • Customizable to get the amount of alerts that can be investigated without getting overwhelming.
  • CrowdStrike University doesn't have a lot of content, it can be completed in a few hours.

  • Simple deployment process
  • Works on all platforms
  • Small footprint
  • Fast
  • Regularly updated
  • Great support
  • Lack of native M1 support on Mac (does work via Rosetta 2 but native would be a lot better).

  • Expensive additional modules.
