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

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

I would like to see simple processing and reporting online.They could also increase or improve the scalability because to my knowledge the biggest bandwidth can only support up to 10 gigs of input.If you have another endpoint product running on the same machine, you have to fine tune functions from FireEye to avoid performance and user experience issues.The integration and display of the dashboards have to be done better.I hope the solution can be used in cloud systems going forward.

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.

The current pricing is much better than before because they now offer product-related promotions along with some changes in product licensing. The new pricing model is better than before.It is a yearly subscription-based product, which includes the license and hardware. There is also a subscription for technical support up to five years.

Overview

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.

FireEye Endpoint Security is an integrated endpoint solution that detects, prevents and responds effectively to known malware and threats traditional anti-virus endpoint security products miss. It expands endpoint visibility and provides contextual frontline intelligence to help analysts automate protection, quickly determine the exact scope and level of any attack activity and adapt defenses as needed.
