What is most valuable?

The EDR feature of CrowdStrike is fantastic. Also, in comparison to other solutions, it can connect remotely, so our security analysts can get into the system directly and do manual analysis as well… more»

How has it helped my organization?

First, it is a production from known and unknown interests. Second, it has an extremely low footprint, so it has minimal impact on the user endpoints in terms of CPU and memory usage. The tamper… more»

What needs improvement?

There are a couple of issues with the compatibility to some of the operating systems. But, I see that there are a lot of things in the pipeline. They have a roadmap, and continuously are improving… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing will depend upon your volume of usage.

What other advice do I have?

It is a complete cloud-based solution, so they will have to factor in the compliance requirements as well. Not everyone is comfortable sending the data to the cloud, especially considering the privacy… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have prior experience with Cylance and Dell Data Security Agent powered by Cylnace, which I would not say is a complete EDR. I also have prior work knowledge of SECDO, which has been acquired by… more»

What is most valuable?

* 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… more»

How has it helped my organization?

* CrowdStrike is a SaaS-based solution which means it can be operated from anywhere, which gives the admins access to control the endpoints from multiple endpoints. * It… more»

What needs improvement?

The current version of Falcon does not support DLP which is a may be a good to have in a EDR Solution. It must be included in the future version if possible. There must be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The setup of CrowdStrike is very simple. It supports all three platforms (Windows, MacOS, Linux), and it has support for the specific version of the above OS. Which means… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We compared multiple solutions in EDR and out of them, CrowdStrike gave the most features and value for money.

What other advice do I have?

It comes with various modules, so you can choose the module that you need on the basis of the costing it comes with. This is definitely not cheap; it comes with a cost… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing the solution, we evaluated various products from the Gartner magic quadrant for endpoint protection platforms (EDR and MDR).

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that our systems are monitored and we are alerted to any unusual behavior.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has made the lives of the IT staff much easier, compared to the previous one. This is the lightest client available that is compatible with different… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the machine learning feature enhanced.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This solution has a very competitive price.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did use another solution previously, but technologies keep changing. We found that CrowdStrike meets our requirements.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody implementing this solution is to understand the requirements. Look at their vision, and understand how the technology is changing in the market in… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated solutions by TrendMicro, Kaspersky, Carbon Black, and SentinelOne.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is its forensics capability.

How has it helped my organization?

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.

What needs improvement?

It probably needs more integration with firewall vendors. It needs integration with other technologies. It doesn't play well with anything else. It is more of a standalone… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are at about $60,000 per year.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Our previous detection software, Webroot, was letting too much stuff through.

What other advice do I have?

It does everything that it claims, making our life significantly easier. Definitely consider CrowdStrike. It will probably save you from a lot of threats that other… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Cylance and SentinelOne. We went with CrowdStrike based on our own experimentation with it. We threw our own vulnerabilities at it, and it performed the… more»

What is most valuable?

When something is detected you can log into the GUI and you can get very specific details about what happened. It's very helpful for investigating incidents and this sort of thing.

How has it helped my organization?

We get a notification when there are some malicious activities on our PC whenever we have a detection. 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 user's PC and we… more»

What needs improvement?

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. When I change the policies for some users, I would like to have an option to apply that policy immediately. Right now, I have to wait for the users to connect… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to just read the documentation. You should start with the documentation, it's very clear and very simple. Anything you need is in the documentation. I would rate it a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped us with security and managing threats that we see currently in our environment.

What needs improvement?

Unfortunately, native applications are not supported.

What other advice do I have?

Do a thorough PoC. Don't go ever go by the sales team unless you have tested it and know it works for your environment, because every environment is unique. The sales guy will promise you the moon. Only unless you have tested, you know it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated three to four other vendors. During the PoC, we figured out that this product is far better, and it met our requirements. That is why we went for CrowdStrike. With our PoC, they did a good job in explaining the product. So, the… more»

What is most valuable?

I noticed that the performance hits on our operating systems are a more minimal than they were on McAfee.

How has it helped my organization?

We are now able to pick up more alerts than we were with McAfee. A lot of things were being missed by our security team using McAfee. We are happier with CloudStrike's ease of use and touch notification than McAfee's.

What needs improvement?

We have had to open a case with the technical support to get some issues and bugs resolved, but they were resolved relatively quickly.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We just moved over from McAfee to CrowdStrike, which detected a lot of things that McAfee did not. We detected a malicious code on our on-premise system, even though we are migrating our application to the cloud. It was able to detect it… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would anyone to look at this product based on our company's experience so far. We have both the on-premise and AWS versions of the product.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is its threat analysis.

How has it helped my organization?

It improves a lot of our security operations for threat management. It provides a lot for our day-to-day operations too.

What needs improvement?

I would like CrowdStrike to provide some correlation in the threat analysis, so we can visualize things better.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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. I would like them to further reduce… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend CrowdStrike as a first option product, but to look at others as well. The new features that they have released were not bad. AWS is better than the on-premise version because it can support cloud resources.

CrowdStrike Questions

What is CrowdStrike?

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.
