Having previously run a penetration testing company, I can tell you that the general feedback I have from professional hackers is that CrowdStrike Falcon does make their job a lot more difficult. 

The "traditional" players in the endpoint protection market e.g. Trend Micro, Symantec and McAfee they generally view as trivial to bypass.

I can't say one way or the other for sure, but, having experienced Trend Micro in the past from an endpoint perspective they have their own way of doing things. They certainly didn't catch everything that even basic a/v like SEP did and they had a very convoluted setup and system configuration. Not sure on how falcon compares but cost wise Trend would probably be the cheap option while Falcon would be more expensive but easier to work in/with.
