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

Pros
"Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers.""I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help.""For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors.""The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.""The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things.""The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now.""I am really satisfied with the technical support.""It is a very stable program."

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

"It has been protecting us for many years, and we hope it will continue to do so for many years to come.""The product helps us by contacting us if there are any virus attacks on our system.""We receive good protection with this solution.""This is a good solution for antivirus and malware protection.""The reporting capabilities are a valuable feature. In enables more visibility on our network.""It has improved my organization because it helps with visibility, in terms of security. We can see the actual attack and can contain it. The antivirus can detect that.""The loss prevention feature would be the most valuable.""Anyone can use it, the protection is good, and they have all of the features."

Cons
"We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released.""I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails.""The solution needs more in-depth analytics.""In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.""The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device.""In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened.""The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.""I would like more seamless integration."

"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 tech support communicates, but it's just not with movement.""I would personally give the tech support a rating of seven out of ten.""The UI interface needs improvement. The management needs further work in future versions.""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."

More Carbon Black CB Defense Cons »

"Although they have increased the complexity, it has affected the scanning speed.""Tech support is not as helpful as they were in the past.""Tech support is not as helpful as they were in the past.""One of the drawbacks is that it is not 100% secure.""The DAC (Dynamic Application Containment) component of this product needs improvement.""The endpoint has room for improvement because it's restrictive, it's very sensitive. Sometimes it can delete something that you need and so sometimes you have to disable the antivirus.""We have a lot of problems with the user experience and it's difficult to implement. MacAfee's better than the ancient anti-virus solutions but it's a little slow to resolve. Many files with malware were destroyed through the network, and MacAfee doesn't detect anything.""Its pricing needs to be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360.""The price is very good.""The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost.""Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection.""There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."

"I am not really involved in the pricing of this product. But, from my understanding, it is OK for us.""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"

"No comment.""The pricing is comparable to other solutions on the market.""This product is costly.""It's fairly priced compared to other products on the market.""Pricing is reasonable and runs at a cost per user per year."
