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

Pros
The most valuable feature is that it detects and stops malicious executables.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 number of false-positives is very, very low compared to other products using AI.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 data analysis is the most valuable because of the whitelist database. It is different than standard IDS solutions.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 most important feature we've found is the Enscripts. That is one powerful feature that I, personally, love to use.It indexes much faster, and is more reflexive because of the Enscripts.Data Recovery: Its ability to repair damaged partitions and uncover hidden partitions from within the tool, and allow further analysis.The technical support is excellent.I like the processing feature on the product because it does everything at once, i.e, indexing, recovery, keyword searches, etc.It speeds up the process, so I can meet my deadlines.

Cons
This solution works well but needs lots of tuning and optimization.The endpoint machines need improvement.The implementation of the solution should be improved. It takes too much time.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 UI interface needs improvement. The management needs further work in future versions.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.Adding an application and a device control feature would be a great help for this solution.

We have come across problems with the end-case. We could not find an email discovery type of module and there was not flexibility with the email.In the past, incident response time for tech support was slow.There were minor UI bugs.I would like to see a capability to ingest and absorb more data. That would be really good. It currently is lacking this function.Ease of use and learning curve need improvement.​Sometimes the application can take more time to complete the image processing or fail at the end of the process.​

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.I am not really involved in the pricing of this product. But, from my understanding, it is OK for us.The cost is a considerable factor, but the benefit factor is the most important. When you compare it with other products, the price is high. Carbon Black will negotiate the price.​The cost/benefit factor has great relevance in Cb Defense implementations​.
