IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

What are the pros and cons of Darktrace vs CrowdStrike Falcon vs alternative EPP solutions?

Hi peers,  

I work as the CIO & Information Manager in the gaming and gambling industry. The company has 650 employees and >30.000 customers.

I'm not able to find a study where Darktrace is compared against Crowdstrike Falcon (or other solutions for endpoint security, e.g. Sentinel One). 

Can anyone help and share their insights?

Hi @reviewer1799568,

Most of these comparisons are opinions and some tests are done in specific conditions that might not suit or reflect your organization's needs and roadmap. Ultimately, the cost of a mistake is a data breach and not just an audit finding or operational discomfort.

I mention this because there are no viable shortcuts. I suggest you test the solutions thoroughly in your own environment to see what works for you.

The gaming floor is hopefully "air-gapped" and the solution should respect that segregation and still provide great security and visibility. One of the challenges is security updates.

For such an environment you would need comprehensive AI and machine learning. I suggest you look at the difference between IOC and IOA.

Good luck and stay safe!

I am told that Darktrace is a complimentary product that doesn't do any endpoint protection.
