Carbon Black CB Defense Primary Use Case

Darrick Kristich
Founder/CEO at Sedara
We are a partner in the managed security service provider (MSSP) space. We service hundreds of customers globally. We implement these solutions on behalf of our customers. With Carbon Black, we've been using them for about six years. We're an MSSP and channel partner with them, as well as an incident response partner. We were like the second incident response company registered with them (through that program) to start using the cb Defense platform. We also integrate it with SIEM. However, we're using it in a managed service capacity. We usually implement it, then manage the platform for our clients long-term. It's used for traditional antivirus, real-time threat protection and prevention, and it also provides us with the ability to do more in-depth investigations into endpoints. With the product, we can do a bit of threat hunting along with managed detection and response. The platform works quite well using it in this capacity. With Symantec, we have been using it for about six years. We integrate it with our SIEM products. We have a lot of customers who actually run it, so we see it quite often. We collect a lot of data from Symantec and help with responding to anything that Symantec finds. We've had a chance to use the product quite a lot. View full review »

The primary use case is for stopping spyware, malware, and viruses in their tracks. It's very good at doing that. It has intelligent learning behind it and we have been very successful in preventing attacks. View full review »

We are a distributor of Carbon Black in Asia. Generally our customers are looking for endpoint features such as EDR (endpoint detection and response). Their existing solutions are usually from another vendor that has provided a normal antivirus solution. They are looking for endpoint protection and detection and response. View full review »
