Carbon Black CB Defense Other Solutions Considered

We also had a review of FireEye HX as well, but we chose this in terms of the utility and also in terms of the cost involved. So that is the reason why we chose CB Defense. And, so, that's the reason why we are currently using CB Defense. We wanted to have an insight about Malware, the vectors for which they come into and what kind of a behavior they exhibit. So these are the things that we are basically looking to the Carbon Black Defense. I think they can probably bring in because there is a little bit of a gap between the native Antivirus solutions like Symantec or McAfee. McAfee does have a separate product, the application control. And Symantec Endpoint has the application and device control as a built-in component in 11, 12, and I think in 14 it has the same. But the EDR solutions currently don't have that kind of a feature. So, if they can incorporate that, it would be a better security control and an antivirus, basically, because you do have instances where Malwares are getting into the network through an RFD or through a particular free software that users might download from the internet.

To compare apples to apples, before going for Carbon Black I was thinking about CrowdStrike. CrowdStrike has a lot of very beautiful features that Carbon Black does not have, like IT asset management. But I am not buying this type of software for IT asset management. I'm buying it to protect my infrastructure from big threats. While CrowdStrike has many good features that Carbon Black does not have, that's not the case when it comes to security. CrowdStrike is a very good product but it's more expensive. If you buy all the components of CrowdStrike I can assure you it will be much better than Carbon Black, but cost is a factor. Our previous product, Kaspersky, was fine but it's not on the level of Carbon Black. Carbon Black is called a next-generation antivirus because it does not only work based on signatures. With Kaspersky we had an incident, and one of the servers affected was the Kapsersky control server. View full review »
