Pros
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.Carbon Black Defense has a higher detection ratio because it's cloud-based and it also does a lookup to virus total.

The solution is broken down into different components from the portals. Web filtering, which is an added feature has been great for us.When Intel acquired McAfee they worked on the protocol so that all vendors can work on the same platform. It's a very big improvement in McAfee. All McAfee products talk to each other. Other vendor's products can join this platform as well so it makes it more powerful on the enterprise side for McAfee.The initial setup is straightforward, not complex.The new central console is better than the earlier one.It has a very simple like multi-tenancy option and scalability is outstanding.McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection is stable. We don't have any bugs being reported.The most valuable features are the adaptive tech on McAfee.Anyone can use it, the protection is good, and they have all of the features.

Cons
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.Report generation can be improved.

On the next release, they should build an easier way to see a repair option within the McAfee icon on your system tray. If there was an issue, you should be able to contact the user or just right-click on "repair". That would be a very good feature to add. That could be a place of improvement, just adding that button, or customizing it.The initial setup is complex. It is a very complex product. You must have experience with it.The solution could use better updates and fewer bugs.Sometimes, while installing the ePO, we were getting so many errors and I don't know why it happened.Support-wise they need to be better.When it runs in the background of the endpoint, the devices get slowed down for some applications.McAfee Endpoint Protection could improve the word control feature.Its pricing needs to be improved.

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​.
