VMware Carbon Black vs. Crowdstrike


Relies on Post-Breach Services

CrowdStrike misses many advanced attacks, forcing customers to rely on post-breach services that cost money, increase risk, and ultimately create more work for responders.


Room to Hide

CrowdStrike’s filtered data collection gives attackers plenty of opportunities to hide in limited data sets and short data retention times, perpetuating the breach.


Lacks Precision and Scalability

With only a handful of hygiene reports, CrowdStrike doesn’t meet the minimum requirements of precision and scalability that IT and security teams need to solve complex problems together.
