CrowdStrike Pros

I like the overall reports of this solution. They are crisp, and to the point.
It has an extremely low footprint, so it has got minimum impact on the user end points in terms of CPU and memory usage.

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.

Because it is security product and acts like an AIML smart product, not merely based on daily/weekly updates and signatures.

CrowdStrike Cons

Nachiket Sathaye
Information Security Consultant with 201-500 employees
It is cloud-based, and this does make some weary of the data being held on the cloud. Privacy requirements must be taken into account.
The dashboard does not have the facility to export the reports in a PDF format, which I can quickly share with internal stakeholders.

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.

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.
