Removes the need to strike a security-productivity balance, while finding numerous risks that competitors miss
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
The most valuable feature is its threat analysis.
Scalability is good. We have had no issues with it.
It's just a single agent that has everything in it... With the EDR solutions, you have to install it, then you have another service history installed, and you have behavioral analytics, etc. With this, everything is in a single small "box," a small agent that has pretty much got everything.
It has the lowest false-positive ratio that I have come across. I have only had one which was a legitimate file that I had to whitelist. It was for one of the applications I was trying to install and integrate. But the false positive ratio is very low.
Instead of having features like rollback and after-event actionable stuff, the whole premise and the context of the solution is to actually prevent these malicious attacks from happening to begin with.... The ability to prevent threats is the most appealing aspect. It absolutely, 100 percent helps with real-time prevention of unknown malware. That's the strength of the product.
It has a very low false-positive ratio. That is important because it means we're not wasting time... We're able to run that entire 20,000-endpoint base with just a handful of engineers.
The most valuable features are the static/dynamic analyses. Deep Instinct's predictive model has very high accuracy and provides threat information for unknown malware, such as malware classification, static analysis information, and sandbox information.
Deep Instinct complements the solutions we already have. You don't need to rip and replace any antivirus or endpoint that you have. It's easy to use and it's easy to have it side-by-side with other solutions. That makes it really easy to have an additional level of protection, rather than to hassle with doing solution migration.
The CPU consumption is low compared to what I have been using in my current environment, which is Sophos. The footprint is a lot smaller, about a quarter of Sophos. It is very small.
Its false positives are very low, because the behavior analysis engine double checks them.
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.
I would like CrowdStrike to provide some correlation in the threat analysis, so we can visualize things better.
Whenever there is a feature release (upgrade) where we push to all the endpoints, it causes something to be blocked without us knowing.
If they can bring some additional, complementary solutions, like network scanning and the like, that will help. If they had some sort of a firewall which could help detect DDoS attacks and other things, it would be an improvement
It would be nice if there were options where, if I have to do SIEM integration, I could do so from the UI: Just pick and choose what SIEM solutions the customers use and have options to have out-of-the-box connection facility.
I would love to see a really exceptional, outstanding level of reporting. I know that's like asking for a unicorn to leap out of the sky with any of these products... When everything works, clients began to wonder: "Everything's fine. Why do we need you?" That's where the reporting capabilities would allow us to really demonstrate: "Hey, here's what's actually going on, Mr. Customer."
The Management Console is not localized.
I would like to see improvement in the user interface so that the user has more control. For example, it would be good if a user could change their grouping if they want to be part of another group. Or if I want to right-click and scan a specific file that I just imported, that would be helpful. Sometimes you just want to do an extra scan to make sure you're safe.
I am looking forward to them adding Linux in Q1 or Q2 of 2019, as this is often requested by my partners and customers. Currently, Deep Instinct only has Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
The pricing will depend upon your volume of usage.
Pricing and licensing are very straightforward. It's two SKUs, one is for the console and the other is for the client.
One thing about their licensing program that I like is that just one covers the server as well as on the endpoint as well as mobile devices. There is no complexity in calculating how many SKUs I need for mobile, for laptop, for desktop, and for servers. It's very simple and that makes it much easier to budget.
In comparison to the other products out there, it's exceptionally competitively priced. When you consider the lower administrative overhead that it facilitates, it's an absolute value.
The pricing is a little bit expensive but we are satisfied with DI's performance.
If I include the false positive rate and the detection rate in the comparison, Deep Instinct is worth its price.

Falcon sensor (small and light) and cloud (big and powerful) work seamlessly to deliver real-time protection and visibility -- yes, even when the sensor is not connected to the internet. The simplicity of CrowdStrike’s architecture finally gives you the freedom to replace and retire the complicated, performance-robbing security layers that clutter your environment.
This architecture lies at the heart of Falcon, CrowdStrike’s pioneering cloud-delivered endpoint protection platform. It both delivers and unifies next-generation antivirus, endpoint detection and response (EDR), managed threat hunting, security hygiene and threat intelligence. Using its purpose-built cloud native architecture, the Falcon Platform collects and analyzes more than 30 billion endpoint events per day from millions of sensors deployed across 176 countries.
Deep Instinct provides comprehensive defense that is designed to protect against the most evasive unknown malware in real- time, across an organization’s endpoints, servers, and mobile devices. Leveraging deep learning’s capabilities of identifying malware from any data source results in total protection: Any threat. Anywhere. Any time.
