3 Reasons WhyCustomers Choose CrowdStrike Over SentinelOne

1

A Complete Turnkey Security Solution

Customers are choosing Crowdstrike to simplify their security environment, consolidate security products and reduce agent congestion.

CrowdStrike’s Falcon platform unifies the technologies required to successfully stop breaches, including true next-gen antivirus and endpoint detection and response (EDR), managed threat hunting, and threat intelligence automation.

With the Falcon Platform, all CrowdStrike products are deployed through a single agent, managed from the cloud, with no reboots necessary.

In addition, CrowdStrike offers fully managed endpoint protection delivered as a service by CrowdStrike’s team of experts – all backed by a guaranteed breach prevention warranty.

Strengthen Protection, Reduce Complexity

Improve your visibility across on-premise, cloud, and mobile devices to discover and hunt advanced threats with the Falcon Platform. With continuous, comprehensive monitoring, you can quickly assess your risk status - from a threat on a single endpoint to the threat level of the organization. Broad coverage with a cloud-native platform that is automatically kept up to date reduces security gaps that can result from inconsistent updates or version control.

CrowdStrike’s team of elite, human threat hunters work 24/7, proactively searching for stealthy threats that technology alone cannot unearth.

Maximum Efficiency

CrowdStrike distills security alerts into incidents and protects with a low false positive rate, allowing administrators to minimize efforts spent handling alerts and quickly investigate and respond to attacks. The Falcon platform uses a common workflow and language when investigating existing alerts or hunting for new threats. Rich context from integrated threat intelligence and vulnerability data helps speed investigation and prioritize response action.

Feature
FLEXIBLE ARCHITECTURE FOR THE DIGITAL WORLD
It’s in our DNA:Designed for the cloud-native, work from anywhere world.
They’re still learning:On-premises, legacy architecture design that is deployed to a cloud, with inadequate scaling for enterprise use.
We’re nimble:Lightweight agent that avoids the performance overhead historically associated with endpoint protection agents.
They’re overweight:Endpoint agent that has high memory consumption and high disk utilization to the tune of GBs on disk.
We’re agile:We enable customers to deploy tens of thousands of agents at once, with no reboots necessary to install or change security settings.
They’re clunky:Their technology requires a reboot to install, needs subsequent reboots when changes are made, and needs custom builds to reduce their false positive problems.
We’re inclusive:Offers the full range of protection on all supported platforms on the day of release – most recently MacOS Big Sur – with full-featured support for the whole enterprise.
They’re narrow:Offers severely limited capabilities on non-Windows platforms, with up to a 2-plus month wait for protections on new operating system releases.

They’re narrow:Offers severely limited capabilities on non-Windows platforms, with up to a 2-plus month wait for protections on new operating system releases.
Deployment
We’re proactive:We provide truly autonomous, surgical remediation without requiring customer intervention or downtime to “rollback,” restore or reimage.
They’re reactive:Can only remediate a threat if they detect it and their “rollback” doesn’t work in all scenarios. Organizations shouldn’t rely on a local and partial backup to resolve a breach.
We’re confident:When we have high confidence in a prevention verdict, we’re able to stop the breach without overwhelming operators with false positives.
They’re alarmists: Allows a high rate of false positives, inflating autonomous and machine-learning-based prevention, and they now charge extra to address the overwhelming false positives from that outdated approach.
REBOOT REQUIRED Required endpoint downtime and restart for installation.
Proactive Threat Hunting
We’re end-to-end:Providing end-to-end security with image scanning and runtime protection, misconfiguration detection, step-by-step remediation and full threat hunting across workloads, devices and infrastructure.
They’re config-fragile:Difficult to operationalize with hard limits on the number of workloads and no auto-updates. And if the agent is out of date, then the “Ransomware Warranty” doesn’t apply either.
We’re secure NOW:Full force protection deployed right out of the box, on Day One, to tens of thousands of endpoints, with no professional services required.
They’re a “process”:False positives during deployment and lengthy onboarding services is what you can expect.
We cover it all:Vulnerability management can be built into CI/CD, with full Daemonset architecture support across Kubernetes with EKS, AKS, GKE, including support for AWS Fargate serverless compute container.
They don’t:Basic malware scanning for instant images only. No support for AWS FarGate, AWS Secrets, nor for securing images against stands-based assessments such as CIS benchmarks.
ALERT MONITORING, TRIAGE AND INVESTIGATION Performs alert monitoring, triage and investigation on detected threats, not proactive threat hunting.
Threat Intelligence
INTEGRATED INTEL Alerts are automatically enriched with threat intelligence including actor attribution, sandbox analysis and malware search for the threat and all known variants.
FILE REPUTATION Threat intelligence is limited to filehash reputation.
Managed Service
FULLY MANAGED ENDPOINT PROTECTION Team of experts handles all aspects of endpoint security, from deployment, configuration, maintenance and monitoring, to alert handling, incident response and remediation.
ALERT MONITORING, TRIAGE AND INVESTIGATION Performs alert monitoring, triage and investigation on detected threats, not a full, end-to-end managed service.

FULL VISIBILITYContinuous, comprehensive recording captures raw events and related information that provides needed context - critical for hunting and investigations.
PARTIAL VISIBILITYFocused on process, file, network and user events.
We’re agile:We enable customers to deploy tens of thousands of agents at once, with no reboots necessary to install or change security settings.

DEPLOYMENT
IMMEDIATELY OPERATIONALDeploys in minutes and is immediately operational - no reboot required.
REBOOT REQUIREDRequired endpoint downtime and restart for installation.
We’re confident:When we have high confidence in a prevention verdict, we’re able to stop the breach without overwhelming operators with false positives.
They’re alarmists: Allows a high rate of false positives, inflating autonomous and machine-learning-based prevention, and they now charge extra to address the overwhelming false positives from that outdated approach.
PROACTIVE THREAT HUNTING
24/7 PROACTIVE HUNTINGElite team of experts proactively hunt, investigate and advise on threat activity.
ALERT MONITORING, TRIAGE AND INVESTIGATIONPerforms alert monitoring, triage and investigation on detected threats, not proactive threat hunting.
We’re secure NOW:Full force protection deployed right out of the box, on Day One, to tens of thousands of endpoints, with no professional services required.
They’re a “process”:False positives during deployment and lengthy onboarding services are what you can expect.
We cover it all:Vulnerability management can be built into CI/CD, with full Daemonset architecture support across Kubernetes with EKS, AKS, GKE, including support for AWS Fargate serverless compute container.
They don’t:Basic malware scanning for instant images only. No support for AWS FarGate, AWS Secrets, nor for securing images against stands-based assessments such as CIS benchmarks.
THREAT INTELLIGENCE
INTEGRATED INTELAlerts are automatically enriched with threat intelligence including actor attribution, sandbox analysis and malware search for the threat and all known variants.
FILE REPUTATIONThreat intelligence is limited to filehash reputation.
We’re effortless:Crowdsource, using AI technology, automatically determines when multiple alerts are related, consolidates them into one incident, and then prioritizes based on criticality.
They’re difficult:Massive levels of false positives making it a daunting task to access event telemetry for validating a detection, understanding what has occurred, or to reconstructing the triggering activity.
We search it all:Threat hunters can search through all collected events at scale, with no UI limitations that would delay investigation. And the response is not limited to the amount of the results it returns.
They search much less than we do:Threat hunting doesn’t scale. Searches can’t return all the results because the record counts are capped. The unique endpoint event types captured are less than half of CrowdStrike.
MANAGED SERVICE
FULLY MANAGED ENDPOINT PROTECTIONTeam of experts handles all aspects of endpoint security, from deployment, configuration, maintenance and monitoring, to alert handling, incident response and remediation.
ALERT MONITORING, TRIAGE AND INVESTIGATIONPerforms alert monitoring, triage and investigation on detected threats, not a full, end-to-end managed service.
We’re hunters:Falcon OverWatch hunts across all endpoint telemetry, compares and contrasts across customer environments helping to make even better informed decisions.
They’re gatherers:SentinelOne Vigilance can only hunt across existing detection data.
We’re complete:Falcon Complete is the only fully managed endpoint protection that includes surgical remediation backed by a “no fine print” warranty of up to $1 million.
They’re partial:Ransomware warranty is strictly limited to ransomware attacks. Lots of strict requirements and only Windows machines running the latest agent version are eligible.
We manage:Delivers vulnerability management, not just vulnerability reporting. Falcon far surpasses any competitor’s endpoint product in the event types it collects and provides all the insight and interactive controls needed to prioritize and resolve at scale.
They report:Vulnerability assessments don’t include OS level details, any remediation guidance; doesn’t even correlate with report alerts.
We’re low risk:Detects unmanaged devices with no network impact, nor any additional risk introduced into the environment.
They’re high risk:Ranger triggers IDS/IPS systems – requiring remote workers to be cautious with 3rd party networks and infrastructures.
We’re automated:Our unrivaled adversary threat intel data predicts how your organization may be targeted, by automatically prioritizing the environment, and then using asset configuration and vulnerability data to determine what is at the highest risk of being exploited.
They’re manual:Users are left to prioritize alerts and events themselves to understand their most important tasks – wasting time on activities that could be automated.
CONSISTENT TESTING MATTERS RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX
We test:We consistently participate in AV Comparatives, SE Labs, and MITRE ATT&CK evaluations as well as SE Labs Breach Response Detection Test.
They don’t test:No regular participation in standards-based AV testing, nor detection tests beyond basic e-crime adversary emulation.
We’re thorough:In a recent ATT&CK Evaluation, Falcon had ZERO configuration changes and made 69 proactive detections. For the same test, SentinelOne made three.
They miss the mark:Still underperformed versus CrowdStrike in most recent ATT&CK Evaluation after making dozens of configuration changes during the tests, unlike a solution that works right out of the box like CrowdStrike.

We don’t have an antivirus solution that’s waiting on signatures to be developed and pushed out. What we’ve got is that we’re part of a larger collection of organizations that are running CrowdStrike, so any data that we see gets fed back into the system and someone else will benefit from that knowledge. And it’s all because it is cloud-based.
