Both Cylance and CrowdStrike are amongst the few top of the market in terms or endpoint protection. CrowdStrike was considered among the top 5 in 2017 and Cylance was considered the same in 2019. As they are both highly effective, CrowdStrike is very unique in its user-friendliness, while Cylance is very unique for its minimum utilization of computer's resources. If you compare initial pricing, you would go with Cylance, but you can always negotiate with both to get the best offers.

I had a great experience having deployed CrowdStrike to tens of thousands of endpoints. It's easy to deploy and operationalize. It has provided protection against threats that other engines did not catch based on its powerful heuristics and AI.
CrowdStrike does invest heavily in R&D and provides advisory services on endpoint protection.

I never used Cylance. We installed CrowdStrike on 6/6/19 and aside from a test file have had zero hits. CrowdStrike has some additional features available (at a cost). One that I am looking at is device control for USB storage devices for policy enforcement. Syslogs are being absorbed by my SIEM as well.

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?  Thanks, Regards from the Netherlands

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. IOA vs IOC: Defining & Understanding The Differences | CrowdStrike. (Please also check other sources). Good luck and stay safe!

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