Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"Personally, I find the Game Mode of the Firewall very useful.""This antivirus is regularly updated, and the updates can be scheduled."

More ZoneAlarm Pros »

Cons
"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."

"Some of our users say that the interface is a little bit outdated for 2020, and want it to be more modern and cozy.""Currently, the client is only available for the Windows Operating System but it would be good if it were released for Mac OS as well."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"We use the free version of the software, but it can be upgraded to the paid Extreme Security edition.""This is a freeware product and I recommend using it."
