About Falcon

Falcon is a cloud-based endpoint protection platform designed to help enterprises detect, manage, and remediate threats in real-time to prevent data loss. Features include event recording, alerts, prioritization, credential management, and access control.

Using the antivirus, Falcon Prevent, IT administrators can identify unknown malware or ransomware and block its spread via unpatched vulnerabilities. Network engineers can use the threat intelligence module, Falcon X to automatically investigate incidents, develop countermeasures using YARA and SNORT rules, and monitor social media, paste sites, DDoS attacks, and botnets for malicious activities. The firewall management module enables users to create, manage, enforce, and modify firewall policies.

Using the dashboard, supervisors can view all unmanaged applications running across the environment, check for encrypted hosts and track asset inventory and application usage. Security teams can monitor the vulnerability status of devices deployed on-premise or in the cloud. It also offers integration with various third-party platforms such as Akamai, Cloudflare, Illusive Networks, Okta, and more.

Crowdstrike Falcon review

Reviewed on 13/1/2024

Pros

One of the best EDR solution in market. I really like the interface of the platform, it is so much user friendly. False positives are very less compared to the previous endpoint security solutions we have used. A light weight agent makes it a very stable product.

Cons

Not much to say about dislike part but I can say it is costly compared to it peers and I feel the reporting feature can be better.

Reasons for Choosing Falcon

There were more false positives, system performance was another issue.

Expensive product in a crowded marketplace

Pros

This tool gave us unparalleled visibility into our environment that we did not have with an old school antivirus agent.

Cons

That the initial install on some systems did not go as planned.

As an admin, I am very happy with Crowdstrike Falcon and hope to continue using and managing it for many years to come.

Pros

We transitioned to Crowdstrike from a traditional endpoint protection solution and the difference was night and day. Crowdstrike Falcon is easy to use and manage, intuitive, incredibly powerful and intelligent, uses a bare minimum of system resources, has a very effective uninstall protection, and is very easy to deploy.

Cons

No cons. I highly recommend this product.

We liked it. There are a couple features only available to Windows endpoints, but those features are slated to be on Mac OS X shortly. We are waiting on that.
As a Splunk user, the integrated Splunk dashboards in the Falcon console are really nice and easy to use.

Pros

Good interface, lots of Splunk dashboards integrated in the dashboards. Good drilldown capability. Love the process execution tracking functionality

Cons

The interface took a couple hours (tops) to get used to, but it wasn't bad. There was a little snag with Mac OS X Catalina, but that's been resolved.

Alternatives Considered

Carbon Black Endpoint

Reasons for Choosing Falcon

Needed better functionality that BD wasn't providing.

Switched From

Bitdefender GravityZone

Reasons for Switching to Falcon

Very similar features, came down to price and SIEM integration.
