Some of my client's use cases are typical endpoint protection, telemetry, and threat hunting. We are using all three of the most popular services that point back to the cloud central console.

Basically we use the solution for protecting and detecting misuse of end-users while using their end-points to access the internet, especially for browsing websites, or suspicious activity as far as misusing their web browser. It protects them from web-based attacks such as DDos (Denial of Service) or ransomware.

The solution is  deployed in our computers in the company. However, I can't speak to the use cases, as I'm still quite new to the company.

After we apply some policies we will receive, for example, alerts. We'll look at the devices that have given us alerts and we'll look to see if there is an issue. Then we can prioritize the issues into high and low categories.

We try to know what is a malicious file or malicious application and we can investigate what's happening according to the alerts in Carbon Black. Many times we've found that our policies avoid false positives. That said, sometimes, we have false positives and we get many alerts. We're working with this in Carbon Black.

Carbon black is basically blocking my application. I cannot open files and I cannot install software without it passing the policies. Not just any application can be installed on our computers. They need to be pre-approved. If we need to, however, we can manually bypass to finish an installation.

The primary use case is for stopping spyware, malware, and viruses in their tracks. 

It's very good at doing that. It has intelligent learning behind it and we have been very successful in preventing attacks.

The product is an endpoint security product. It's kind of like a replacement for a traditional antivirus.

Carbon Black CB Defense is a multi-purpose solution. We can use it for XDR ADF. This way, if someone is trying to attack one's end point, in which there is a script such as PowerShell, but without a signature, the solution will be aware of such an attack and respond accordingly. It will detect the behavior and respond to the SOC.

The dashboard shows the security analyst who looks at the reports of the threats around policies monitoring Carbon Black agents. The discovery happens in Carbon Black, and as part of the discovery, it will monitor multiple Carbon Black agents. Deployment is on hybrid cloud VM cloud on AWS.

Assistant Technical Manager at a tech services company with 11-50 employees

We are a distributor of Carbon Black in Asia. Generally our customers are looking for endpoint features such as EDR (endpoint detection and response). Their existing solutions are usually from another vendor that has provided a normal antivirus solution. They are looking for endpoint protection and detection and response.

Senior Software Engineer at NCR Corporation

While there is an IR team that is responsible for managing EDR or deep analytics, our focus is on endpoint and antivirus protection. This is where we encounter signature updates. We look for false positives in their relation to file interpretation. Should anything occur, we can instantly respond. Instead of sending a sample and getting coverage, we can put a policy and place an immediate stop on the false positives.
