Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature of CrowdStrike Falcon is its accuracy. That's very important for me. False-positive are very bad for everyone. As we are a financial institution, it's even worse. I like Falcon because it's very accurate.""It has definitely minimized resources. When everything was on-prem, there was a lot more work maintaining it. One of the big value tickets: I don't have lists of hundreds of exceptions for certain applications that I have to maintain, add, delete, and move. The very nature of the product has lessened my workload considerably.""I like the Overwatch feature the most.""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.""The stability is good; we haven't experienced any glitches or bugs.""Scalability hasn't been an issue for us.""The Protect functionality on the laptops provides great visibility into what's occurring, and the cloud management of the platform is what we needed.""The most valuable feature is the indicator of compromise, which show you what file was either quarantined or removed."

Cons
"I would rate it an eight out of ten. It does what it needs to do but there's always room for improvement.""They need to strengthen the forensic capabilities of this product, for e-discovery.""Any kind of integration that you want to do, such as using the API to connect to a SIEM, is complex and it will be expensive to do.""The management reporting functionality needs to be improved.""It does take more time to scan than other solutions.""There are some aspects of the UI that could use some improvement, e.g., working in groups. I build a group, then I have to manually assign prevention policies, update policies, etc., but there is no function to copy that group. So, if I wanted to make a subgroup for troubleshooting or divide workstations into groups of laptops and desktops, then I have to manually build a brand new group. I can't just copy a build from one to another. Additionally, in order to do any work within a group, I have to first do the work on the respective prevention policy page or individual policy page, then remove the group if the group is assigned to a different prevention policy, remove the prevention policy, and then add the new one in. So, it can get a little hectic. It would be easier if I could add and remove things from the group page rather than having to go into the policy pages to do it.""They don't really have anything when it comes to scanning attachments.""Basically, they don't cover legacy OS or applications. That's the only issue we're concerned about"
