Carbon Black CB Defense Pros

Carbon Black Defense has a higher detection ratio because it's cloud-based and it also does a lookup to virus total.
It gives you all of the information in a short and sweet fashion.

The biggest feature out of CarbonBlack is its ability to dive in with more depth. You can look at the entire kill chain and understand, not only if an alarm or identified incident is truly a true security issue versus a false positive, and it allows us to backtrack and figure out why it actually happened and how it got into the environment.

You can deploy it through the cloud so that even if your stuff is outside of your controlled environment, you are still under control, based on the policies you create. The policies are controlled through the cloud. For example, if I don't allow anyone to do a certain activity or to install a particular app, and a consultant or a partner who is not part of our environment is doing so, it will stop them as well.

It actually does some heuristics, and some behavioral analysis.
The most valuable asset is the time-lining capability for any breach activity.
This product has the capability of uploading scripts to the tool and this is a very comprehensive feature.

The triage feature that shows you the whole chain of the malware is useful.

The data analysis is the most valuable because of the whitelist database. It is different than standard IDS solutions.

The offline networking is the most important feature. Some of our users are engineers that work offsite, and they can still be on the solution, which is also great.

Carbon Black CB Defense Cons

Adding an application and a device control feature would be a great help for this solution.
Report generation can be improved.
But here, we hardly can take any kind of a report out of Carbon Black, so I think that should be something that should be more user-friendly.

Carbon Black needs to do a better job of proving their platform in the industry, and providing a bit more access to do industry testing with real world examples to help prove their platform.

As far as I know, Carbon Defense has nothing that can be installed on mobile devices. It lacks a defense solution for mobile devices, especially mobile tablets. I would like to see support for mobile devices and the pricing should be less than the pricing for a normal workstation.

The tech support communicates, but it's just not with movement.
I would personally give the tech support a rating of seven out of ten.

When you view the triage, it will show you everything within a given time frame, and not only the attack that caused the alert, which is what I want to see. It shows you all the events during that time, and that can be quite confusing.

The UI interface needs improvement. The management needs further work in future versions.
