CrowdStrike vs. Wiz

Can't stop breaches

Wiz wasn't built to stop breaches. With visibility-only agentless and agent capabilities, they focus on detecting vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, not stopping attacks. With limited runtime protection and only remediation suggestions, users are left to stop adversaries themselves.

CrowdStrike difference

CrowdStrike Falcon® Cloud Security stops breaches with unified agent and agentless protection, from endpoint to cloud. With runtime protection built on the same unified agent as our pioneering EDR, we leverage 10+ years of experience countering sophisticated adversaries, with built-in insight from world-class threat intelligence, hunting, and IR experts.

Standalone point product

Wiz is a point product. Without protection for key attack surfaces, such as endpoint or identity, customers are forced to manually stitch together standalone tools, introducing massive complexity and security gaps.

Our unified platform, single agent, and single console delivers end-to-end protection to stop breaches. This secures critical areas of enterprise risk by consolidating point products – endpoints, cloud workloads, identity, and data. The Falcon platform eliminates complexity.

Limited threat intelligence

Wiz was founded in 2020 with limited adversary expertise and threat intelligence. Without real-time insight into how attacks are evolving, they can’t build effective protections.

Compare CrowdStrike to Wiz

Wiz

Unified platform

Comprehensive agentless and agent protection
Falcon Cloud Security provides unified agent and agentless protection for hybrid and multi-cloud environments. The unified agent is based on CrowdStrike's industry-leading EDR for full runtime protection, from endpoint to cloud.

Agentless with immature, visibility-only agent
Wiz is limited to detection from agentless capabilities and visibility-only sensor, leaving you open to a breach with limited runtime protection.

Threat intelligence

World-class threat intelligence
CrowdStrike was named a leader in External Threat Intelligence Services, with the highest ranking of all vendors in the Current Offering category, arming defenders with full context to proactively defeat adversaries, including insight from threat hunting and incident response experts. (Source)

Limited intelligence
Wiz offers limited threat intelligence, forcing customers to rely on third-party providers to understand emerging threats. Without native insight on adversaries from experts, they don’t have the ability to build effective security.

Managed detection and response

#1 in MDR
CrowdStrike is the world’s #1 Managed Detection and Response vendor by market share and achieved the highest detection coverage out of all participants in 2022 MITRE ATT&CK Evaluation for Managed Services. (Source)

No MDR
Wiz lacks any managed services offerings, leaving you with potential cloud security skills gaps that can’t be filled.

EDR/XDR

Visibility and protection, from endpoint to cloud
CrowdStrike unifies industry-leading, native visibility and protection across endpoint and cloud workloads, identity, and data — to stop adversaries as they move across the enterprise.

No endpoint offering
Wiz does not have runtime protection with their visibility-only agent, forcing customers to manually correlate endpoint and cloud telemetry across multiple vendors, resulting in worse security outcomes and crushing complexity.

CrowdStrike ranked 4.9/5 by Falcon Cloud Security customers
