Overall Satisfaction with CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection

We had a need for a leading endpoint protection platform with EDR capabilities to protect against modern threats. Further, we had a need to have 24x7x365 coverage with subject matter experts working around the clock. Because we, as many security teams are, running very lean there was a requirement to have a fully managed solution to help ensure our alignment with best practices but to also have eyes on our environment at all times.
  • 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.
  • Increased security overall with minimization of false positives.
  • Significantly improved peace of mind.
  • Significant reduction in management overhead, we just email the Falcon Complete team.
CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint certainly comes in with a slight price premium compared to other offerings, but when you're talking about your last line of defense against malware it's well worth it. From a feature perspective, many players offer similar feature sets but what sets CrowdStrike apart is the ease of implementation. The management is simplistic in nature for the items we managed on our own (we were using Falcon Complete which is a managed solution).
Yes - We replaced Trend Micro Apex One as our outgoing endpoint protection platform. Trend Micro did the job for many years but it was growing more difficult to manage with our small team and it was really lacking features and missing key detections. Trend Micro has no managed offerings short of utilizing a third party which we weren't wanting to do. The benefit of having CrowdStrike manage their own product is there can be no finger-pointing - it's their product that they manage.
I don't think there are many folks in the security space that haven't heard about CrowdStrike, but they did come highly recommended as a partner of choice by our cyber insurance provider. We've also encountered their booths at various security conferences and read numerous articles from their threat intelligence team about emerging threats that are out there.

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.
