CrowdStrike Falcon Valuable Features

They're very good at what they do. As far as the product is, in its current state, I don't have any complaints at all right now. They do a quarterly review with us, just so they can let us know how many viruses or how much malware they've stopped, etc. Those features are quite good. They also go through the portal step-by-step to describe whatever they improved or tightened up. They will explain everything clearly and in a way that a customer can understand. They do also ask for feedback, which is nice. They'll ask things like "The last time we changed this, how was your experience?" or "Did you get a lot of false positives?" or "Did you get any complaints?" etc. That's pretty good. Not many companies do that. The UI is simple and self-explanatory. Everything is easy to understand. So far, in the past three years, they've been absolutely great. They've been more proactive than the solution we had previously was. They even introduced new products in their line and they came back and told us that they could add that product to our current solution. At first, we added them, then we decided we had sufficient resources in house to manage it ourselves and removed it. They were great about the change. They've caught quite a lot of viruses and malware that have been sent through improper links, which is very reassuring. They report any network isolation that has been done on certain endpoints if they detect a malicious file or malware on the device that couldn't be cleaned by automation. They isolate it or us. The end-user can contact the service desk and say, "Hey, I'm not able to surf the internet. I can't do anything, so can you help me?" or we're able to look at the endpoint and see "oh, your PC is infected, that's why you aren't allowed on." It's protecting us well. Even though the users are somewhere else, even when they're not at headquarters, we are able to remediate everything before we put them on the network again. Those network isolations are great when we detect high threat malicious items. Those are valuable tools that we appreciate. View full review »

The overall user experience is good. As of today, there have been no incidents that we've had to deal with and we've been using it for years. The solution has a very good graphical interface. It makes it easy to use. The central monitoring is excellent. There's almost no maintenance required. It's very low if there's any at all. The solution is an AI and ML-enabled tool for protecting our endpoints. We're still able to use Symantec as an endpoint as well. View full review »

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 machines are flawless. They don't have any issues. There I don't even recognize the machines which are on endpoints. Even when I go to the console to check these machines, they are working on a very good level, even though the wireless migration should detect those aspects. The AI features are pretty good. They've recently introduced more webinars that make remote learning of the solution very easy. For people such as myself, or even a company looking to develop their skillsets and interested in better understanding the cloud, providing good web courses is really helpful. View full review »

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. What does it usually do, and is it doing anything differently? The UI is great, and the performance was great. The way it gathers and presents the information was very good and it integrates well with things with a central log aggregator, such as Splunk. You can do more big data analytics that includes security. It seems to be fully featured in all of those areas. View full review »

The solution hasn't picked up a virus yet, so I don't know if I'm able to really discuss the most valuable aspect of the solution just yet. It's very new. It's not costly, and it's not constantly running, it's only looking for suspicious items when it starts to take action. There's nothing constantly scanning your device, so it's not slowing anything down in that respect. That's what I liked about it the most. It's not your traditional antivirus that just sits there constantly scanning your computer for Trojans and malware, etc. This doesn't take any action until it sees something actually going on. The initial setup is very simple. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the indicator of compromise, which shows you what file was either quarantined or removed. It shows you the malicious files in question, as well as the exact time, the machine, the endpoint, and the host IP address. Everything you need to know is right there in a single dashboard.

* It can connect to host and isolate it from the network if needed; this feature helps us to investigate the endpoint without visiting the endpoint and then testing. * It saves time and helps to contain the threat in less time. * complete visibility into the endpoint View full review »

John Seaver
Director Of Information Technology at DLZ Construction Svs.
We rely on our environmental security and we haven't had any infections so that's valuable for us. It means we haven't lost any time due to the system being down from ransomware or anything like that, so it's quite positive. View full review »
