We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the integration with firewalls. It's integrated with AMP so the ecosystem with equal solutions from Threat Grid is good with CISCO products."
"It is easy to implement and is very scalable. It also comes with very good documentation. Cisco provides good technical support as well."
"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."
"They come in and have multiple management solutions but it doesn't scan or doesn't have the ability to look at every file extension."
"I was told that the user interface could be more user friendly and easy in comparison to that of competitors. I remember that there is a competitor who has a much easier interface for many users to interact with."
"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."
"If I remember correctly, the licensing cost is a little bit higher than that of the competitor."
"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."
Cisco Threat Grid crowd-sources malware from a closed community and analyzes all samples using proprietary, highly secure techniques that include static and dynamic (sandboxing) analysis. It correlates the results with hundreds of millions of other analyzed malware artifacts to provide a global view of malware attacks, campaigns, and their distribution. Security teams can quickly correlate a single samples of observed activity and characteristics against millions of other samples to fully understand its behaviors in a historical and global context. This ability helps analysts effectively defend against both targeted attacks and the broader threats from advanced malware. Threat Grid’s detailed reports, including the identification of important behavioral indicators and the assignment of threat scores, let you quickly prioritize and recover from advanced attacks.
CrowdStrike is the leader in cloud-delivered next-generation endpoint protection.
