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 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.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 software uses very few resources; it is almost invisible to the end user.

The advice I would give someone implementing this solution is that the management of the solution is very easy. You don't need a lot of people to manage the solution.The signature update is done securely.We used to have a lot of phishing attacks and all these kind of things for end-users so we decided that we needed endpoint security. We evaluated some solutions and found that Kaspersky is the most appropriate in terms of endpoint security and the speed of the user machine. The encryption is a major factor from our end.It helps to improve our security for our mobile and VMware infrastructure. The remote tasks are great.The blocking feature is the most valuable feature.The centralized management is a nice features. It gives us the leeway to deal with other things as protection is being carried on in the background. We do not have to keep on watching as long as we have the right updates. It also saves us time.It performs quite well as a firewall protection provider.We have gained advanced threat protection without investing more into that area.

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 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.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.The directions for Splunk are spot on, but it is difficult to find anything on integration with AlienVault,

This solution needs improvement in the reporting section. Reporting in Kaspersky Endpoint is good but it's not that great. The platform needs to centralize reporting control.There have been some performance issues. They provide good security, but this slows down the performance of machines' servers. The software is not updating as frequently as we need.There should be some AI involved. We already have machine learning involved in recent releases but machine learning should be more enhanced in the upcoming versions.The reports aren't so good. To make it a perfect ten they should improve the reports and web interface.It needs more computer resources. They should have more anti-spam features.If someone has the older version of the solution, and wants to install a newer version, they must remove all of the previous applications. Otherwise, there will be issues with the solution.I would like to see better reporting.It's does not have the architecture or structure to scale up.

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​.

You can get discounts if you have more agents.Pricing is very competitive and licensing is very much ethical.
