Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Once the solution is installed and configured correctly it does not require a lot of hands-on attention until you need upgrading.""You can deploy it through the cloud so that even if your stuff is outside of your controlled environment, you are still under control, based on the policies you create. The policies are controlled through the cloud. For example, if I don't allow anyone to do a certain activity or to install a particular app, and a consultant or a partner who is not part of our environment is doing so, it will stop them as well.""The product allows us to focus on endpoint and antivirus protection.""The threat analysis functionality is good.""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.""Some of the valuable features I have found are the online documentation of the solution is well organized and thorough. I like the simplicity of bypass and the visualization of the active components.""It has intelligent learning behind it and we have been very successful in preventing attacks.""The solution is extremely scalable."

"The detection response and quarantining are very good features.""Probably the most valuable feature of CB Response is its ability to isolate a host and take it off the network, so it's not spreading anything. We have two security operations centers around the globe. When an SOC analyst sees something on an endpoint, they can use Carbon Black Response to isolate that host from the customer's environment and prevent any kind of lateral spread."

Cons
"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.""The EDR portion could be better. I'm not a big fan, but it works.""The application control can be improved. It should also have an automatic update of the agents.""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.""The feature set for the firewall needs improvement.""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.""The GUI and reporting should be addressed and the product's administration features need fine tuning.""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 product detects too many false positives initially and it could integrate better with other security solutions.""There have been some performance issues when deploying on Windows Server, but I believe Carbon Black is working on that."

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