CrowdStrike Review

The AWS configuration is good, but the cost is quite pricey


What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is threat protection.

How has it helped my organization?

It improves a lot of our security operations for threat management. It provides a lot for our day-to-day operations too.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is its threat analysis.

What needs improvement?

I would like CrowdStrike to provide some correlation in the threat analysis, so we can visualize things better.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable. However, whenever there is a feature release (upgrade) where we push to all the endpoints, it causes something to be blocked without us knowing.

We have not put that much stress on it, about 20 percent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is good. We have had no issues with it.

Currently, we have about 4800 resources in the cloud.

How is customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is good and helpful.

How was the initial setup?

The AWS integration is good, and its configuration is straightforward.

What was our ROI?

We have seen ROI.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Purchasing the product through the AWS Marketplace is just a click away. Since we were using the on-premise version of the product, we continued on the cloud by purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace.

I would like them to further reduce the price, because it is quite pricey at the moment.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend CrowdStrike as a first option product, but to look at others as well.

The new features that they have released were not bad.

AWS is better than the on-premise version because it can support cloud resources.
