Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The visibility provided has been great.""It is stable and easy to set up.""The triage feature that shows you the whole chain of the malware is useful.""The initial setup is very easy.""There's lots of very useful documentation online to help troubleshoot and learn about the product.""The solution is extremely scalable.""Once the solution is installed and configured correctly it does not require a lot of hands-on attention until you need upgrading.""I like its protection very much. It protects and allows us to lock the environment pretty tightly. Nothing that is not approved through Carbon Black can run in the environment. There is no default. Everything goes through Carbon Black Protect, and everything has to be first approved. Every software is considered to be guilty before prove innocent."

"The features that I have found most valuable are that the search capabilities are easy to use. The dashboards are good. The reports are good. It is just simple from a deployment standpoint - that was easy."

Cons
"I'm not sure as to the logic of how we've decided to customize it. We've only really used it since February and therefore there may be more to do on that front. That's why it's hard to say if something is missing or if we just aren't utilizing it.""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.""Based on all the security roles and the release privilege, it could take time for an application to be whitelisted and approved for use.""The solution needs expanded endpoint query tools.""The application control can be improved. It should also have an automatic update of the agents.""Occasionally, we'll have issues with the latest version and they'll basically tell us that they will improve it in the next iteration. They need to work on their version release quality.""There are many different controls that are needed to be put into place for upgrading that makes it difficult. Having to re-engineer your IT infrastructure to match their software, as opposed to having it integrate and work independently causes difficulties. When there is an update to any software everyone has to be involved.""Its compatibility can be improved. It did crash a server during deployment, which is not something that I want to happen. Its deployment should also be easier. The whole deployment cycle needs to be simplified. It is an enterprise solution, and to set it up right now, you have to be an expert."

"There are some automated network response portions that we want to turn up."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price for the solution is completely at government level, meaning one which is very high.""It's reasonable in price""The pricing [is] more or less the same as other similar solutions.""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."
