We tested many endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools to help you choose the right one for your business.
Specifically, we looked at their capabilities, price, success rate, integration, and add-ons.
In the end, we picked out our three favorite solutions:
- Check Point SandBlast
This is quick review of our top 3 EDR tools:
CrowdStrike Falcon is one of the more powerful EDR tools on the market. The ideal solution if you’re looking for response and cloud-based management with excellent UI and ease of use.
The thing that really makes CrowdStrike stand out is its advanced endpoint protection. It combines EDR capabilities with next-gen antivirus and a 24/7 managed threat hunting service.
If you’re looking for an affordable EDR, then CrowdStrike may not be the solution for you.
Still, it’s worth the price you pay for since you’ll get all the critical features necessary for detection and cybersecurity:
For an additional fee, you can get access to add-ons like automated remediation and vulnerability assessment, which sets CrowdStrike apart from its competitors.
Beside the price tag, the only other downside to Crowdstrike is its lack of content filtering or VPN.
VERDICT: One of the most powerful EDR solutions available on the market, with the largest number of features that guarantee maximum detection and protection.
SentinelOne is another full-featured EDR tool. But what sets this solution apart is that it uses AI-powered threat detection and response.
This makes it an ideal security system to cope with hackers that use artificial intelligence and machine learning in their attacks.
SentinelOne comes with an endpoint protection platform (EPP) that enables you to control everything from detection, through response, to remediation.
In fact, automated remediation is included into the price and is highly rated by many users.
However, SentinelOne lacks some features you may be looking for. Specifically, this EDR tool doesn’t include full-disk encryption, VPN, mobile support, or web content filtering.
But even without these capabilities it is still a top-rated solution, which is why Gartner named SentinalOne one of the best EDR platforms in its Peer Review with a score of 4.9 (out of 5).
VERDICT: One of the most popular EDR products on the market, with great features, scores and usability.
#3 Check Point
Check Point SandBlast is a feature-rich EDR solution. What makes this solution stand out is that it’s built for ease of use.
Check Point is also tailored towards smaller businesses that operate on a smaller budget and with fewer resources, often with small teams or with managed IT services.
The price of this EDR system is also on the lower-end of the spectrum but that doesn’t mean you won’t get a bang for your buck.
In fact, Check Point is powerful enough to cater to both SMBs and large-scale and complex enteprises.
The biggest downside to this solution is that Check Point doesn’t provide you the ability to create custom rules. There are also some issues with implementation, but the developers have assured us that this is going to be fixed this year.
VERDICT: With a solid performance and a lot of capabilities, one of the best EDR products in its class and price range.
