We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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 offline networking is the most important feature. Some of our users are engineers that work offsite, and they can still be on the solution, which is also great.""The most valuable feature is that it detects and stops malicious executables.""You can deploy it through the cloud so that even if your stuff is outside of your controlled environment, you are still under control, based on the policies you create. The policies are controlled through the cloud. For example, if I don't allow anyone to do a certain activity or to install a particular app, and a consultant or a partner who is not part of our environment is doing so, it will stop them as well.""The triage feature that shows you the whole chain of the malware is useful.""What I like the most about it is the dynamic grouping, where you get to group endpoints based on setup criteria. That's pretty cool. I like the simplified policy management and simplified white-listing process.""It has intelligent learning behind it and we have been very successful in preventing attacks.""I like the historical features, interface, and integration.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward."

"All of the features are valuable. The way that it integrates into management with fault correction capabilities over is especially valuable. Any of the full gamut of the features that it provides are useful to us.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the user-friendly interface.""We have a preference for their receptor. It's good at finding many EFC files. EFC files could have a virus.""The solution offers very rich details surrounding threats or attacks.""It has the ability to rollback a ransomware infection instantly and with minimal disruption to the user & provides robust reporting.""We love the API. We use it to generate robust reporting, and we also developed tools to perform agent actions remotely without needing to provide all IT staff with console access.""The strength of SentinelOne is that it has an automated, active EDR. It does that first level of what a SOC analyst would do, automatically, using artificial intelligence, so we can focus on other things. Active EDR not only notifies you, but it actually fixes that first level. That is unheard of. Very few, if any, companies do that.""The most valuable feature is that it just unintrusively works in the background to carry out the protection."

Cons
"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."

More Cisco AMP for Endpoints Cons »

"The endpoint machines need improvement.""This solution works well but needs lots of tuning and optimization.""As far as I know, Carbon Defense has nothing that can be installed on mobile devices. It lacks a defense solution for mobile devices, especially mobile tablets. I would like to see support for mobile devices and the pricing should be less than the pricing for a normal workstation.""When you view the triage, it will show you everything within a given time frame, and not only the attack that caused the alert, which is what I want to see. It shows you all the events during that time, and that can be quite confusing.""The EDR portion could be better. I'm not a big fan, but it works.""At this point, we're test-bedding several other providers right now to see if there's anything that does equally or better and that comes at a better price point.""The feature set for the firewall needs improvement.""The solution needs better overall compatibility with other products."

More Carbon Black CB Defense Cons »

"In terms of improvement, I would like to see better alerting to let us know if there is anything wrong with SentinelOne working on the endpoint of the computer.""This solution would be more attractive to customers if the price were lower.""It's fine. It's correcting all the EFC files with a virus. All the achievements, maximum EFC files. Many EFC files will be flagged as a virus. Some virus databases need to be updated. The model is good at finding many EFC files. The trouble is it needs to be updated.""The solution needs better reporting on new threats and malware. The reporting is present, but I can't find the information easily.""Set up is very labor-intensive.""It would be nice if the console stored data daily, so that you could look at a timeline of events on a machine over a period of time, and currently this is not possible.""The area where it could be improved is reporting. They have some online reporting, but it would be nice to be able to pick and choose. When I'm looking at the console, I would love to be able to pull certain things into a report, the things that are specific to me.""Periodically we have an application that does not work correctly when SentinelOne is installed, yet performs as expected when SentinelOne is removed."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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 have branches, we have different companies, but we cannot buy less than 100 licenses. This does not make sense to me... It should be more flexible. I can understand their saying, "Okay, to be a customer you need 100," but to add on to that number it should be something very straightforward. If I need to add five, for example, I shouldn't need to add 100.""The pricing [is] more or less the same as other similar solutions.""It's reasonable in price""The price for the solution is completely at government level, meaning one which is very high."

More Carbon Black CB Defense Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The per-seat cost is low, but you have to commit to a certain number of licenses for a year.""The larger count you have, the deeper discount you will receive in your contract.""Our licensing fees are about $5 USD per endpoint, per month.""USD$6 per end point which decreases as end points increase.""Pricing is a bit of a pain point. That's where we have not been able to convince all of our customers to use SentinelOne. The pricing is still on the higher side. It's almost double the price, if not more, of a normal antivirus, such as NOD32, Kaspersky, or Symantec.""The solution's price/performance ratio is reasonable.""You have to look at the kinds of problems you can end up with and the fact that you want security against them, and then SentinelOne is not expensive.""It was cheaper than McAfee, which was a way to convince management to go with the solution."

A short answer:
Perhaps the biggest IMO is SentinelOne is the only one of these 3 that does not have to go to the cloud for any behavior protection. It allows for full execution and blocks specific patterns rather than go to the cloud sandbox. Crowdstrike has a lite version of blocking without a sandbox. Additionally, Active EDR and intuitive storyline indicating patient zero is a plus with SentinelOne (this without any consulting or threat analyst).

IMO, it depends on whether you have abilities to validate and/or correlate telemetries - these guys brings out quite a lot of telemetry alerts for you to work on...

They address slighty differing customer profiles, Crowdstrike has deep integrations to Okta, Sailpoint and others, where as SentinelOne has AI automation that outstrips the general use case associated to most threat detection elements.
