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 valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall.The protection that this solution offers us is strong.Intercept X is the most valuable feature in the solution. It's more or less pretty standard. The endpoint feature allows you to basically see what is happening, and stop a wide range of threats. It's been the most unique identifier for Sophos.If you want something simple to work with, Sophos makes it very simple for you to use.So easy to deploy and use that you really don't even need their technical support.It is stable.

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.

I would like to have more logging features to help more deeply analyze traffic.In the next release, I would like to see the phishing attached included in the firewall.Deployment and central management need to be improved.If you are not an IT expert, the solution is difficult to use.Configuring notifications is lagging a bit behind the curve as the product should be able to direct exactly where any notification type is sent.Sometimes there are issues with the antivirus back logs.

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​.

The pricing for this solution is ok.Willing to discount when you are switching from another product. Upgrading services will end up costing more, as expected.
