Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Setting up and managing the setup for this solution is okay. It is stable, scalable, and it runs just fine. No issues with technical support.""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."

More Carbon Black CB Response Pros →

"The most valuable feature is the monitored support behind it.""The feature that I have found most valuable is that the configuration and the usage of the product are not so complicated. For people responsible for using this infrastructure for the first line of workstation monitoring, it's quite easy to use.""If some unusual activity happens on the network, such as I open administrator sessions in a short duration of an hour on many computers in the lab, it sends me an alert about my network saying that one user opened three, four, or five sessions in one hour. Similarly, if I try to play with the disk size on a computer, it will send me an alert, and it will also stop the operation.""It's transparent, so it's not something where every user has to press a button to download or do the thing. It is centralized, in fact. Personally, I use Malwarebytes and other tools, which are fine for home use. Cynet is also relatively silent in terms of operation, except when it's required to act.""The dashboard is beautiful, overall easy of use, and the UBA and NBA features are valued.""The product is very easy to use. Customers really appreciate that.""I have found the continued support and pretty much all the features to be valuable. They all stand out as being positive. It continues to detect unusual activity when it's supposed to, and so far we haven't had any issues.""We are very satisfied with the level of performance we get."

Cons
"Training and education for both partner and customer, including product marketing need to be improved.""There have been some performance issues when deploying on Windows Server, but I believe Carbon Black is working on that."

More Carbon Black CB Response Cons →

"The solution just needs to keep maturing and they need to keep up with the threat landscape to ensure they're protecting clients well as time passes.""They have some things in the pipeline, we understand, and they're going to be able to support Android and all these other devices soon. The key is the devices - which is an aspect that is lacking right now. Every company has that problem, not just Cynet.""Automation could be improved, and orchestration could be added to the features.""Linux servers are not supported.""I'd like to see more data loss prevention within the product.""Most of their times are in Greenwich Mean Time. I would like to see more local time zones.""It is an endpoint agent, but they don't have a probe for checking the network traffic. They could improve from this point of view.""Compliance reports need to improve."

  • More Carbon Black CB Response Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Pricing wise, Cynet seems to be very competitive. The cost is probably lower than that offered by many of its competitors for all the functions and features it offers."
  • "The pricing was good."

    Overview

    CB Response is an industry-leading incident response and threat hunting solution designed
    for security operations center (SOC) teams. CB Response continuously records and stores
    unfiltered endpoint data, so that security professionals can hunt threats in real time and
    visualize the complete attack kill chain. It leverages the CB Predictive Security Cloud’s
    aggregated threat intelligence, which is applied to the endpoint activity system of record for
    evidence and detection of these identified threats and patterns of behavior.
