More Cisco Threat Grid Pros →

"The OverWatch is the most valuable feature to me. It's a 24x7 monitoring service, and when they see anything suspicious in my environment, they will investigate.""Scalability hasn't been an issue for us.""Easy to use, intelligent, and stable threat detection software.""We have a small IT Team, and this allows us to get sleep at night, knowing that someone else is taking care of any incidents that occur.""CrowdStrike Falcon has done an excellent job at detecting breaches. It has allowed us to stay in business and keep our systems up.""CrowdStrike Falcon is effortless to use, and it's a cloud-specific platform. You only need to deploy the light agents on the licensed endpoints, and you're ready to work. Your dashboards will tell you the number of the endpoints being protected and the incidents. There are also incident dashboards with alerts that will tell you about the details.""It's very easy to set up.""Cyberattack detection is very good. We use it for detecting different vulnerabilities, such as ransomware, virus, and malware. It is a good product today when compared to Symantec that we used previously."

Cons
"I was told that the user interface could be more user friendly and easy in comparison to that of competitors. I remember that there is a competitor who has a much easier interface for many users to interact with."

More Cisco Threat Grid Cons →

"The console is a little cluttered and at times, finding what you're looking for is not intuitive.""The installation process for this software needs to be simplified.""A year and a half ago or more, if you put in a support request by email, then it wasn't timely addressed. It could be a day to three days before you received a response, which was a bit frustrating. There was a lot of customer feedback around this issue, which has been greatly refined.""They should provide us with good visibility for everything.""CrowdStrike Falcon could improve by having an easier way to search and use the interface for extracting queries from the data. The interface could improve.""The technical support team often just replies to an issue with a link to an article rather than actually calling back and talking to someone and making sure the problem is solved. To me, that's kind of weak.""We can do a threat analysis of any machine at any time, but that threat analysis is very limited.""I would like to see equal support across all versions. Aside from that, I would say most of the features are there."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "If I remember correctly, the licensing cost is a little bit higher than that of the competitor."
  • More Cisco Threat Grid Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is good and there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
  • "We bought a very small number of licenses, then ran it for a year. We bought a 100 licenses for a year, so we didn't actually do a proof of concept. We just bought them. Then, the next year, we bought 10,000 licenses."
  • "It is an expensive product, but I think it is well worth the investment."
  • "The pricing is not bad. It's on the higher end of the market, but you get what you pay for."
  • "The pricing is definitely high but you get what you pay for, and it's not so high that it prices itself out of the market."
  • "The pricing and licensing are fairly good. It is definitely not a cheap product, but I have felt that it is worth the money that we spent. So, we have discussed it in the past, and were like, "Yes, it is probably pricier than some other solutions, but we also feel they really are the leader. We are very comfortable with their level of expertise. So, it's kind of worth the price that we pay.""
  • "With respect to pricing, my suggestion to others is to evaluate the environment and purchase what you need."
  • "The pricing and licensing are reasonable. I don't think we are getting charged more than what it is worth. It is fair, but I do not like how it is a la carte. I realize they do that so other organizations can buy and get the agent, getting it cheaper than you could otherwise. However, if you want the main core package, which has all the main features with the exception of maybe the multi-cloud protections, that can get pricier for an organization. So, you have to pick and choose what you want. I do not care for a la carte pricing."

    Overview

    Cisco Threat Grid crowd-sources malware from a closed community and analyzes all samples using proprietary, highly secure techniques that include static and dynamic (sandboxing) analysis. It correlates the results with hundreds of millions of other analyzed malware artifacts to provide a global view of malware attacks, campaigns, and their distribution. Security teams can quickly correlate a single samples of observed activity and characteristics against millions of other samples to fully understand its behaviors in a historical and global context. This ability helps analysts effectively defend against both targeted attacks and the broader threats from advanced malware. Threat Grid’s detailed reports, including the identification of important behavioral indicators and the assignment of threat scores, let you quickly prioritize and recover from advanced attacks.

    CrowdStrike is the leader in cloud-delivered next-generation endpoint protection. CrowdStrike has revolutionized endpoint protection by being the first and only company to unify next-generation antivirus (AV), endpoint detection and response (EDR), and a 24/7 managed hunting service — all delivered via a single lightweight agent. 

    Many of the world’s largest organizations already put their trust in CrowdStrike, including three of the 10 largest global companies by revenue, five of the 10 largest financial institutions, three of the top 10 health care providers, and three of the top 10 energy companies.
