IT Security at a real estate/law firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

It won't let anything in that is not approved. We would need to manually approve it. It offers a sense of security where anything that comes in, regardless of what it is, unless you approve it manually, it's not going to run.

How has it helped my organization?

If any malicious activity, like VAT viruses, anything RNE, ZOD malware, or something similar comes in we know that unless we approve it, it's going to be blocked.

What needs improvement?

There are a lot of false positives where it comes to stuff like the operating system itself, like Microsoft. At first, there was no standard of false positive, that it blocks a lot of store apps and a lot of new processes. Another issue is… more »

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

Pricing could be a bit lower. The new players that we have in the market can do both antivirus, anti-malware, and also application wide listings within the app. Suppliers will have to be competitive moving forward.

What needs improvement?

The reporting is not good and needs to be improved. It is plain and unattractive, and you need to do a lot of sorting to get it done. Having some form of executive management reporting, in case we need to present it to the board, would be… more »

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

We pay a fee for support, which is renewed annually.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering Carbon Black App Control is that it is a good solution, and probably one of the best application whitelisting solutions in the industry. However, you need to have a very scalable infrastructure for… more »
