Handles the important task of virtual patching, although the agent-based version has performance issues
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.
The most valuable feature is the virtual patching.
The vulnerability scanning reduces false positives by quite a bit.
The most valuable features are web security, email filtering, and content filtering.
It has improved functions by bringing us complete security on our clients' virtual environment.
It has a perfect SaaS which integrates with AWS, offering flexibility to deploy quickly and easily in the cloud.
Deep Security enables us to bridge the gap between patching windows using the Virtual Patching feature. This allows us to make sure full patching is tested properly in our testing environments before rollout.
It provides a comprehensive feature set and a strong security baseline for us with integrations into other security tools.
There are compliance issues for legacy applications and after applying OS security patches. The product's HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) modules do the job for you automatically, without any downtime.
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.
When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration.
The client can show as offline sometimes, and that becomes a bit difficult for troubleshooting. We end up basically redeploying the client. This is something that could be improved in the future.
The support for email protection can be improved.
It needs better global visibility of the virtual environment.
I would like them to add EDR features, moving away from traditional signature-based anti-malware.
The default reports provided don't provide much insight.
I would rate tech support in the range of six to eight out of 10. Time to provide solution could be improved.
It needs to improve its integration with a lot of other products. This should be in the road map because we have a lot of SaaS-based appliances which are not connected with each other.
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.
Some of our customers complain about the cost of this solution.
The cost is approximately six thousand Qatari Riyal ($1650 USD) per user.
Purchasing this solution through the AWS Marketplace was secure and quick. AWS has good prices for a good product.
The training needs improvement. It is expensive (classroom training), and it is often hard to find answers by yourself using the documentation.
The AWS licensing model is scalable and easy to use, but could do with tiered discounts. I am not sure how well this model will scale when we start to use Auto Scaling with AWS resources.
We are an original partner with AWS, so a couple of customers chose to directly take it from AWS Marketplace. A couple of customers will want us to take care of the billing. So, it's a mixed type of reaction that we receive from the customer.
The price is reasonably good as compared to other products into the market.
Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime.
