About Falcon

Falcon is a cloud-based endpoint protection platform designed to help enterprises detect, manage, and remediate threats in real-time to prevent data loss. Features include event recording, alerts, prioritization, credential management, and access control.

Using the antivirus, Falcon Prevent, IT administrators can identify unknown malware or ransomware and block its spread via unpatched vulnerabilities. Network engineers can use the threat intelligence module, Falcon X to automatically investigate incidents, develop countermeasures using YARA and SNORT rules, and monitor social media, paste sites, DDoS attacks, and botnets for malicious activities. The firewall management module enables users to create, manage, enforce, and modify firewall policies.

Using the dashboard, supervisors can view all unmanaged applications running across the environment, check for encrypted hosts and track asset inventory and application usage. Security teams can monitor the vulnerability status of devices deployed on-premise or in the cloud. It also offers integration with various third-party platforms such as Akamai, Cloudflare, Illusive Networks, Okta, and more.

Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with Falcon, with its ease of use and commendable anomaly detection.

Pros

Detailed analysis of processes, logon attempts, and great ability to sync with Splunk and Active Directory. Great dashboard to add to the best parts. The falcon complete team does a great work to ensure endpoint security is well

Cons

The falcon complete team sometimes does not provide additional details about False Positive events or why a software was classified malicious.

We liked it. There are a couple features only available to Windows endpoints, but those features are slated to be on Mac OS X shortly. We are waiting on that.
As a Splunk user, the integrated Splunk dashboards in the Falcon console are really nice and easy to use.

Pros

Good interface, lots of Splunk dashboards integrated in the dashboards. Good drilldown capability. Love the process execution tracking functionality

Cons

The interface took a couple hours (tops) to get used to, but it wasn't bad. There was a little snag with Mac OS X Catalina, but that's been resolved.

I enjoy it and find it useful. It's much better than our last vendor who would cause computers to freeze and crash. This runs more in the background and seems less intrusive for users

Pros

The support team is very responsive and helps guide us through any issues we have. They also help clear up what is a rather complex, information filled portal.

Cons

There is a ton of information that can be overwhelming if you are not well versed in security. Fortunately the support teams guide you through any confusion you may have.

Pretty easy to use, and it is very light installation on the client, specially if you do not have a very actual and robust configuration on your computers. I am still missing some features that we have on more traditional virus solution, but on the future, I believe that all the antiviruses solutions will follow this standard.

Pros

Very light solution to run on the computers, it is just a client that alerts the portal about the virus on computers and take some actions based on what were configured inside the portal.
Easy to install/deploy, not so many options to choose, it is very straight to the point, also the options and configurations inside management portal are pretty easy to use.
However, it updates automatically on the computers and servers.

Cons

Sometimes it is not update automatically, and I had some problems to remove the software, the key that is used to install/remove fails sometimes. I can mention that the computers take some time to appear inside the management portal, and you do not know if it is working properly or not. Another thing that you can miss, you cannot run a scan on your computer manually, to find viruses or other malicious files, it is supposed to be monitored all the time through the portal.
