What is your recommendation for a 5-star EDR with low resource consumption for a financial services company?

I'm looking for an EDR with low resource consumption and very robust for 270 computers.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

I highly recommend SentinelOne. It is extremely effective and has very low resource usage.

Hi Fernando,

I’m very happy with Kaspersky. Good value  for your money. Good support when you need it. The console gives you more than only antivirus, but also patch management for 3th party software and so many more. And i believe the best anti ransomware in the world.

With kind regards,

@Pieter Plas which Kaspersky product do you use as an EDR solution (and not an EPP one)?

Hi Fernando,

Nice to meet you! 
From Sofistic we can help you with SOC and Crowdstrike EDR!

As our community is about professional knowledge sharing, we encourage our community members to share information in their answers.

Please elaborate on what distinguishes the suggested product from other EDR products? Why is it a good fit for the requirements of @Fernando Elias Gonzalez Hernandez?​

@Evgeny Belenky

In line with what @Fernando Elias Gonzalez Hernandez ​ tells us, Crowdstrike works with a very low level of resources relying on AI and machine learning. 

Other tools are based on signatures, heavier and less effective in attacks from zero-day. Another thing to note in favor of Crodwstrike it is a modular solution, whose deployment is very fast...

@✔ Fernando Collado Herrera,  
I also second Crowdstrike.

We just retired Kaspersky (for ethical reasons), and the only EDR worth consideration, was Crowdstrike. 

It has a low CPU usage based on behavior detection, and they're so confident that their product works, that they tripled our cyber insurance coverage.

Management is simple, and the support is great, even in these trying times. 

The client runs silently; users don't have a clue.

@✔ Fernando Collado Herrera thanks for your reply!

As to AI-based tools, it seems there are many alternative ones such as: Sophos Intercept X Endpoint, Trend Micro Apex One, Microsoft Defender, Cisco Secure Endpoints, ...  I think many vendors are adding the AI support as signature-based only tools are much more vulnerable. Am I wrong?

Are you aware of any 3rd party research or comparison between Crowdstrike and other similar EDR products?

Trend Micro Vision One! The XDR solution is already matured compared to last year and can be correlated with other information within an environment.

@Meleria Mangaring what makes this solution better than competitors? Thanks

Carsten Dan Petersen - PeerSpot reviewer

SentinelOne is the best solution for that. 

A minimum of training and administration, easy to manage and deploy, more secure than most of its competitors, and very low consumption of resources.

JosephBrancato - PeerSpot reviewer

I highly recommend Bitdefender Gravityzone Business Security Enterprise. 

Low resource usage, policy management supports inheritance, option to set a power user mode password (to temporarily disable on an endpoint). 

Relay machines can be optionally used to have a few or one relay machine(s) fetch the updates and then forward to all endpoints to reduce update traffic, instead of all machines fetching updates; it's easy to learn/use.

Hi @Fernando Elias Gonzalez Hernandez, ​

You can check RSA Netwitness Endpoint if your focus is low resource impact, deep use of machine learning and great forensic tools. Plus, you can integrate the ecosystem with another visibility product in the future (net and logs).

If you are looking for a stand-alone solution (full cloud mgt), I recommend SentinelOne too.

SentinelOne or Watchguard EDPR Both provide SMB to corporate level support and management. 

SentinelOne has an icredible record. We use Watchguard alongside their other products, e.g. Authpoint.

I strongly recommend Bitdefender MDR. 

Bitdefender is rated #1 on the EPP side by AV-comparatives testing. 

And Bitdefender MDR is tested in the top rank on the MDR side by Mitre Attack Framework testing. 

In this day and age (with both AMD and Intel having very good performance even on the I3 low-end side), I would prioritize efficacy over system impact. 

Bitdefender only really has an impact when running a full scan. 

In normal operation (even with all of the modules running) the impact is negligible. Bitdefender Gravity Zone with MDR, I think, is the best there is over Trend Micro/Sophos/Crowdstrike.

MIGUELVAZQUEZ - PeerSpot reviewer

A good option is Darktrace as it meets both criteria.


<an original answer>

Una buena opción es DARKTRACE pues cumple con los dos criterios.

Most companies I have spoken to are looking to purchase solutions from CrowdStrike.

@reviewer1861374 thanks.

What are the main reasons (according to the clients) to choose this solution vs competitors?
