It is "expensive" and flexible.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were previously using Malwarebytes and McAfee. We are still using them along with Traps.

What other advice do I have?

Test normal behavior of the Traps agents (injection and policy) and confirm that there has been no change in the user experience.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated the following other large endpoint security companies: Kaspersky Endpoint Security, CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection, Symantec Endpoint Protection, and… more»

What is most valuable?

In Symantec Endpoint Protection, the most valuable feature I like is the good performance. With Symantec, I always know this tool will be reliable and with the latest protection.

How has it helped my organization?

Symantec is top of all of the antivirus tools. I couldn't find any single incident that happened. Symantec was not the leader previously, McAfee and Kaspersky were. This is a new game.

What needs improvement?

The device control level and application control level should improve. I am finding a lot of issues when I block the devices, like a printer or scanner. In the classes of the devices for the application control, the most important issue is the hashing. Nowadays all the vendors, like Cisco firewalls… more»

What other advice do I have?

In my personal experience, most people use Symantec. In my whole life, I couldn't find any problems with Symantec. In the ransomware protection, though, I found many issues. Many people were having infections but the virus sometimes was not detected. Even the Kaspersky software could not detect it… more»

The feature we found most valuable is the AI functionality for maintaining endpoint security. This is very powerful and has been useful over the last year.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before choosing this solution, we were on BitDefender.

What other advice do I have?

To implement endpoint protection, Webroot is a good product. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate this product an eight. Maybe it could be better. I've had no significant virus problems since I… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Symantec, Kaspersky, and BitDefender. We wanted to evaluate three products when we chose to upgrade. The other solutions were not on the same level as Webroot. Webroot stood out as the… more»

What is most valuable?

The deep analysis is the most valuable part of the solution. The number of false-positives is very, very low compared to other products using AI.

How has it helped my organization?

In terms of ransomware, that may try to rename or change a file, Carbon Black completely prevents these events from happening. A file name can only be changed by the user itself. The solution sets an… more»

What needs improvement?

The implementation of the solution should be improved. It takes too much time. However, once it's set up you really feel that there is a difference. The implementation itself is a little bit… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is a little bit costly. Compared to other traditional anti-viruses it's three times the cost, but if you have one incident it's is enough to see the ROI of the solution. The best price we… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Kaspersky but we switched because when it comes to ransomware or suspicious activity all the traditional anti-viruses they cannot handle next-generation anti-viruses like CB does.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the public cloud deployment model of the solution. The provider is CB themselves. I would rate this solution 8.5 out of ten.
