Which product has better reputation: Carbon Black CB Defense or CrowdStrke Falcon?


I'm working at a Biotechechnological company and I have been researching Endpoint Protection (EPP) solutions. 

I need some help from the community to understand which product has a better reputation: Carbon Black CB Defense or CrowdStrke Falcon. Please share your advice. 

Thanks in advance.

They are both fantastic tools for protection, however, Carbon Black's administrative interface is a bit more intuitive, and their support seems to have a better depth of knowledge at each level.  

Carbon Black is also, typically, MUCH more expensive. Just like every other IT component, your company can get as much IT K (in this case security) as it is willing to pay for. If protecting your IP from prying eyes is of value to your company, then Carbon Black is worth the money.  

CrowdStrike Falcon is VERY GOOD, but having worked with both, Carbon Black Protect and Defense combo are just enough better to warrant the cost.

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?  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.

I don't know these 2 solutions but a very important point to consider is called Linux (or Macintosh - non-Windows platforms that must be inspected by the tool.
