Is anyone running this security product, especially on Ubuntu servers, and can comment on their experience? Our central IT organization wants us to run it on the servers in our department datacenter, and I'm wary about introducing proprietary software that runs as root and reports to others.

Never heard of the product, you will be better of getting an opinion else where since most of the users here are desktop users.

Where are university,
I will add that if it comes down from corporate, you probably don't really have any choice in the matter - assuming you wish to keep working there.

We are a CS department in a University, so a little looser than in a more corporate environment.

CrowdStrike is a EDR solution (End-Point Detection and Response) which is basically a Next Generation Anti-Virus Solution. While CrowdStrike doesn't explicitly have an Anti-Virus solution, it does have a HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) which is very good.

CrowdStrike makes a very good solution, though I went with a competitor who is near the same standing, but substantially lower priced. Not to mention the other solution actually does also have built-in Anti-Virus scanning.

You do not have anything to worry about by installing CrowdStrike. Your system will actually be more secure by using it. Not less secure.

I can confirm that it works, since I have it on my work PC (openSUSE Tumbleweed).

(Yes, I realize that this is an older thread, but thought I'd add my $0.02 since this thread was recently active.)
