Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the indicator of compromise, which show you what file was either quarantined or removed.""CrowdStrike Falcon has done an excellent job at detecting breaches. It has allowed us to stay in business and keep our systems up.""There's almost no maintenance required. It's very low if there's any at all.""I like the detection rates of mobile threats.""Probably the most valuable thing to me is the real-time response piece. The fact that I can connect to an endpoint as long as it is on the Internet, no matter where it is globally. I can remove files from the endpoint, drop files on the endpoint, stop processes, reboot it, run custom scripts, and deploy software. Pretty much no other tool can do all that.""The Protect functionality on the laptops provides great visibility into what's occurring, and the cloud management of the platform is what we needed.""The stability is good; we haven't experienced any glitches or bugs.""The initial setup is very simple."

Cons
"Too many false positives.""There are some aspects of the UI that could use some improvement, e.g., working in groups. I build a group, then I have to manually assign prevention policies, update policies, etc., but there is no function to copy that group. So, if I wanted to make a subgroup for troubleshooting or divide workstations into groups of laptops and desktops, then I have to manually build a brand new group. I can't just copy a build from one to another. Additionally, in order to do any work within a group, I have to first do the work on the respective prevention policy page or individual policy page, then remove the group if the group is assigned to a different prevention policy, remove the prevention policy, and then add the new one in. So, it can get a little hectic. It would be easier if I could add and remove things from the group page rather than having to go into the policy pages to do it.""The biggest issue with Falcon as a standalone product is it doesn't have very much reporting.""CrowdStrike Suites and the way that it bundles things can be a bit challenging. It should be easier to integrate with the other stuff that they sell or be included with what they sell. We have one piece, then they are talking about another piece on vulnerability management all of the sudden, and we don't own that piece. We can see it in the console, but nothing shows up. It simply appears within the tool as an option, but we can't use it without purchasing it.""It does take more time to scan than other solutions.""In the future release of CrowdStrike Falcon, they should add a sandbox feature.""I would rate it an eight out of ten. It does what it needs to do but there's always room for improvement.""It would be nice if the dashboard had some more information upfront, and looked a little better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing and licensing are fairly good. It is definitely not a cheap product, but I have felt that it is worth the money that we spent. So, we have discussed it in the past, and were like, "Yes, it is probably pricier than some other solutions, but we also feel they really are the leader. We are very comfortable with their level of expertise. So, it's kind of worth the price that we pay."""The pricing and licensing are reasonable. I don't think we are getting charged more than what it is worth. It is fair, but I do not like how it is a la carte. I realize they do that so other organizations can buy and get the agent, getting it cheaper than you could otherwise. However, if you want the main core package, which has all the main features with the exception of maybe the multi-cloud protections, that can get pricier for an organization. So, you have to pick and choose what you want. I do not care for a la carte pricing.""Our company pays approximately US$ 65,000 annually for 900 machines.""The pricing is not bad. It's on the higher end of the market, but you get what you pay for.""The price is too high.""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.""The pricing on CrowdStrike is per license. It was about $42 per seat yearly."
