enSilo vs Falcon
What are the differences between CrowdStrike's Falcon Endpoint and enSilo? I feel that they have a similar feel as to technique.

Also, can't this whitelisting approach be instantiated at the NIPS level as well? You are essentially stating that you will only accept traffic from the verified data transit feeds.

Re: enSilo vs Falcon
Hi Ryan,

Thanks for asking.

 To answer the first part of your question, enSilo vs. Falcon:

I wish not to refer to CrowdStrike's Falcon. However, I can quickly elaborate on enSilo's technology. enSilo's platform correlates the OS-related activity together with the respective actual outbound communication request. As such, enSilo prevents the consequences of the targeted attack – the data theft (exfiltration), and by design generates one alert for a single active communicating threat.

 

As for your second part, enSilo vs. NIPS –

NIPS employs packet filtering of incoming data packets. On the other hand, as mentioned, enSilo's platform correlates the OS-related activity together with the respective actual outbound communication request. As such, NIPS does not provide that intimate visibility.

 

If you want more information, feel free to PM me.
