Overall Satisfaction with CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection

We are currently using the CrowdStrike [Falcon Endpoint Protection] on any device that is capable of running the agent in our environment. We needed a better solution than traditional AV. Falcon provides a low resource impact product while not having to rely just on signatures to detect suspicious activity.
  • Does not perform signature based scans that often cause resource issues
  • Allows for a number of incident response actions such as Real Time Response
  • User friendly interface which makes it easy to administer
  • SOAR capabilities such as immediate network containment
  • Price
  • Search for events not in the main console is difficult (based on Splunk)
  • Minimized resource footprint, we no longer lose processing power due to scheduled scans.
  • Increased security posture, we no longer have to exclude directories from scanning
  • High confidence that it will stop any malicious software
Crowdstrike [Falcon Endpoint Protection] blows [McAfee Endpoint Security] out of the water. At least when you compare their traditional AV to CrowdStrike. Operational and Security wise, leaps and bounds.
Yes - This replaced McAfee Antivirus. McAfee was too much overhead for both computer resources and workforce resources.
We used a full trial. I downloaded around 50 different pieces of malware including ransomware. It stopped every bit of malware we threw at it. That was enough to sell us, as we didn't feel our traditional AV would have detected it so quickly.

Do you think CrowdStrike Falcon delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with CrowdStrike Falcon's feature set?


Did CrowdStrike Falcon live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of CrowdStrike Falcon go as expected?


Would you buy CrowdStrike Falcon again?


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.
