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

Pros
The initial setup is very simple.We haven't had any infections or down time.This solution has made the lives of the IT staff much easier, compared to the previous one.We are now able to find the root cause analysis on any threat. We can figure out where the issue came in versus just dealing with where it is at the moment.We have seen a reduction to the performance hit to our operating systems.We are happy with CloudStrike's ease of use and touch notification.Because it is security product and acts like an AIML smart product, not merely based on daily/weekly updates and signatures.The automatic alert feature is the most important feature of the solution.

More CrowdStrike Falcon Pros »

The stability of the solution is good.The intelligence of the system has been very impressive. It's not quite AI, but the technical bit where it correlates information, based on the seen attacks within an organization is good.

Cons
They don't really have anything when it comes to scanning attachments.Too many false positives.I would like to see the machine learning feature enhanced.As the company has grown, the technical support has felt less personal.The GUI can use improvement, it's cloud-based so sometimes the interface can be a bit slow. The interface could use a little bit more speed.We have had to open a case with the technical support to get some issues and bugs resolved.Unfortunately, native applications are not supported.The management of log aggregation is in need of improvement.

More CrowdStrike Falcon Cons »

The solution could offer better reporting features.The solution could also use better dashboards. They need to be more graphical, more matrix-like.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing on CrowdStrike is per license. It was about $42 per seat yearly.Our company pays approximately US$ 65,000 annually for 900 machines.This solution has a very competitive price.We are at about $60,000 per year.The other administrator and I can log in to check the exact details of what happened, what was running, and what caused the detection. We know exactly what was happening on the end users PC and we can tell if it's something that we actually need or something that's malicious.I do not have experience with the cost or licensing of the product.I would like them to further reduce the price, because it is quite pricey at the moment.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.
