Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""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.""The most valuable feature is that it detects and stops malicious executables.""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.""The triage feature that shows you the whole chain of the malware is useful.""What I like the most about it is the dynamic grouping, where you get to group endpoints based on setup criteria. That's pretty cool. I like the simplified policy management and simplified white-listing process.""It has intelligent learning behind it and we have been very successful in preventing attacks.""I like the historical features, interface, and integration."

"The most valuable features are the threat-hunting and the batch console.""They're highly stable in comparison with other solutions I have.""Carbon Black insures the probability that any ransomware will be stopped before spreading.""Integration and scalability are the most valuable.""The market information they gather from the community is really good. Their configuration capabilities are good.""The most valuable feature is its ability to seek out abnormal activity and to create alerts.""The detection response and quarantining are very good features."

Cons
"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.""The endpoint machines need improvement.""This solution works well but needs lots of tuning and optimization.""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.""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 EDR portion could be better. I'm not a big fan, but it works.""At this point, we're test-bedding several other providers right now to see if there's anything that does equally or better and that comes at a better price point.""The feature set for the firewall needs improvement."

More Carbon Black CB Defense Cons »

"They need to improve the batch console. It needs more capabilities. We are limited by the ones it provides...""The dashboard should be more user-friendly.""The cloud console has a lot of bugs and issues in the analysis part.""It's not simple.""They have different products, but if we wanted to take their protection and their EPR, then we would need to have two agents""It's not highly available, so you have to have a core server. If the primary server goes down, you need a new one. It's not available at the same time, however. It's not automatically swapped from one server to another.""The product detects too many false positives initially and it could integrate better with other security solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Carbon Black might be a touch more expensive than Symantec. They tend to get a premium for their capabilities. They're sort of an industry leader in a lot of areas with the functionality that they provide.""We have branches, we have different companies, but we cannot buy less than 100 licenses. This does not make sense to me... It should be more flexible. I can understand their saying, "Okay, to be a customer you need 100," but to add on to that number it should be something very straightforward. If I need to add five, for example, I shouldn't need to add 100.""The pricing [is] more or less the same as other similar solutions.""It's reasonable in price"
