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