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.

The feature that I find to be the most valuable, is being able to look at the system analysis and being able to baseline what is installed on the system.

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.

I think there's an opportunity to enhance the AI or at least the traps to say, if something changes from this baseline, let us know and flag it.

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.

The biggest issue with Falcon as a standalone product is it doesn't have very much reporting.

They need to strengthen the forensic capabilities of this product, for e-discovery.

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.
