We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE."
"The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things."
"The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now."
"I am really satisfied with the technical support."
"It is a very stable program."
"The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features."
"It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."
"The solution is pretty easy to scale."
"The solution is stable."
"On the management side, we liked the way it displays things."
"The solution is extremely scalable. It's got the hybrid functionality, it's got the system functionality and cloud functionality as well."
"The Application Guard and ByteGuard are useful features."
"Two or three years ago when the WannaCry virus struck, the people that were on Cylance were the ones that weren't affected."
"Has good RAM capacity for the power I need"
"It secures different entry points into the network."
"We haven't had any infections or down time."
"The initial setup is very simple."
"The UI is simple and self-explanatory. Everything is easy to understand."
"There's almost no maintenance required. It's very low if there's any at all."
"Their endpoint is pretty flawless. There is no lag on the machines at all. Even though I have a good overview of all the machines, that's pretty much the most valuable feature of CrowdStrike Falcon."
"At this point what is most valuable is the interface, which is easy to navigate."
"The solution can scale easily."
"The most valuable feature is the indicator of compromise, which show you what file was either quarantined or removed."
"The solution needs more in-depth analytics."
"In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication."
"The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device."
"In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened."
"The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved."
"I would like more seamless integration."
"The technical support is very slow."
"I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products."
"The security scripting needs improvement. It needs deeper security for scripting."
"The solution needs better dashboards that are easier to use."
"It should provide more details about the events that they have detected."
"I would say one thing that they might need to bring in is protection for mobile devices."
"The OPTICS component could be made more user-friendly with respect to giving people more information."
"I would like to see them fix the alerting system so that the endpoint reporting is a bit more streamlined."
"It should have better support for Windows and Mac."
"The user interface is outdated."
"Too many false positives."
"They don't really have anything when it comes to scanning attachments."
"Basically, they don't cover legacy OS or applications. That's the only issue we're concerned about"
"The solution needs to have integration with on-premises security devices and security facilities. That means all the security products, including the perimeter firewall, the DMZ."
"It does take more time to scan than other solutions."
"In the six months that I have been using CrowdStrike, it has not been able to detect anything."
"Support, particularly related to after-sales and after deployment, could be improved a bit. If you need to connect to support, it takes at least a day to reach the support team and get a proper reply."
"Any kind of integration that you want to do, such as using the API to connect to a SIEM, is complex and it will be expensive to do."
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360."
"The price is very good."
"The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost."
"Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc."
"In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement."
"Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection."
"There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization."
"The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."
"We would just add more if there are new users, but right now you just need one license for per user."
"I think that the price we are paying is good for what it is."
"The monthly fee is $55 USD per user."
"The product cost is about $5, per user, per month."
"This cost of the license is approximately $5 USD monthly per user."
"Our company pays approximately US$ 65,000 annually for 900 machines."
"The pricing on CrowdStrike is per license. It was about $42 per seat yearly."
"The pricing could be reduced. If it was more reasonable that would be great."
"Our licensing fees were between $50,000 and $60,000 per year, which was pretty expensive for a small business."
"When comparing to Microsoft, CrowdStrike Falcon is more expensive."
"All I can say about the licensing cost is that it's negotiable."
"The price is too high."
"The pricing is good and there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
