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.

This solution helps us by providing central management of anti-malware and anti-exploit functionality.We have seen a decrease of approximately ninety percent in the number of events.The most valuable feature is its ability to customize for different groups.It gets the job done, and they are consistently updating it monthly.It comprehensively finds and removes malicious software.It allows us to have better knowledge of the way people use the tool and how we can improve their workflows.We don't have to spend any time remediating bad things happening: Not viruses nor ransomware.

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.

This solution reports far too many false positives!The product update capability needs to be improved.We experience a lot of false positives.They should make it faster, less taxing on the processor.There is room for improvement in the way it is deployed, in terms of being able to distribute it. Right now we have to get our hands on a machine to deploy it. It would be nice if there was an easier system.I would like to see integration with other vendors going forward.Every once in a while, it gets clobbered by updates from other places. I don't think this should happen.

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.

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.
