"Admin of Bit9"

What do you like best?

This is a great product for gaining complete control over malware. Anti-virus often times will miss things and cannot protect against all threats. Bit9 provides application white listing and really helps us only allow approved software to run on our systems. This helps us protect against zero day attacks or unapproved software on the systems. The tech support is fantastic and for good reason - you will most likely need them. Deploying the agent is easy with SCCM or the like

What do you dislike?

This is a very cumbersome product. They make you attend a 2 day training class just to get started with it. They also highly suggest you work with an engineer to get it up and running. Getting it up and running involves a slow process of putting the software in visibility mode to learn and then increasing its power to lock down. Can be hard sometimes to troubleshoot why a block is happening and this is compounded by the complex nature of approving and trusting files and programs

Recommendations to others considering the product

The system tries to put in pre-built things to make setup go faster, and this helps but this is not a turn-key and walk away solution. You will spend a lot of time on this each day/week so factor that into your total cost of ownership

"Highly Effective, if a bit involved"

What do you like best?

This is, hands down, my favorite application whitelisting I've ever used. It can approve by the file's hash value (SHA-256), the publisher/certificate, or a number of other custom options. High customizable across the environment, and even enabled me to completely eradicate bloatware (such as ASK Toolbar) within two weeks of full implementation.

If your installation is on a server that can access the internet, it can also use VirusTotal and CB's own reputation service to auto-approve some programs based on collective input from other customers (reducing management time).

Other providers tried to get me to switch because CB Protection uses a lot of man-hours to manage (which is true), but they cannot reliably block some"benign but unwanted" programs without using a blacklisting approach. CB Protection means I can block unwanted programs from the get-go, even if they are basically harmless.

What do you dislike?

This is a highly involved implementation and management. Expect six (6) months or more to call the project done - anything else means that you may very well shut down some critical applications and/or let things through that should not be. Trust me; take the time, plan your policies, and be cautious.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plan your implementation, and work closely with your Professional Services person. They can really help you. And pay for the training for each administrator (at the time of this review, each purchase comes with two training slots for your company).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

(A form of) Antimalware and version control are the two biggest items. Also, in my current environment, we're using it in an offline scenario - no internet access. All other whitelisting and antimalware solutions REQUIRED internet to function - a big NO-NO for SCADA environments.

"CB Protection - Application Whitelisting"

What do you like best?

The best aspect of CB Protection is its ability to hash out and quickly locate executables on all of our workstations and servers. This helps us tremendously when searching for and weeding out known-bad and suspected-bad files from our network.

What do you dislike?

At our current installation version (v7) the administration interface is a bit aged and clunky. We've also had some problems with logon scripts being blocked. However, CB support is top-notch and have always helped with we've had issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Speak with their representatives. We had a very good pre-launch discussion with their sales and engineering staff in order to get more comfortable with the product and educate ourselves on all of the different aspects of the product's features. Their support is top-notch!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest problem we were looking to solve with CB Protection was to help prevent the execution of ransomware programs as we had been hit by several in quick succession. The product has delivered on this and has prevented countless other infections from malware and just unwanted applications.

"Quite a beast"

What do you like best?

Carbon Black seems to be unlike any other endpoint security product that we've seen. While other (more traditional) products focus on their ability to keep your company safe, Carbon Black focuses on *your* ability to keep your company safe and giving you tools to do that. In our situation, we could not realistically remove local admin rights from the majority of our PCs, so Carbon Black gave us a way to control what people are running without fully removing admin rights. The verbosity of control that we have over our endpoints and the reaction time that Carbon Black gives us to threats is surpassed by no other software that we have seen so far.

What do you dislike?

Part of the territory of having verbose control over a system is that it is more complicated to use and time consuming to manage. This can scare some of our staff away from being trained on it, leaving only a select few who can manage the product. That being said, it is still well worth the effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have at least one full time staff assigned just to Carbon Black and mitigation - especially during initial implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Protecting our endpoints even though we couldn't realistically remove admin rights from most of them.

"A free FTE in every box! And a good night's sleep!"

What do you like best?

The fact that the User Exchange is loaded with the very experts a company would call if they had an incident and needed help. It truly is like getting a free FTE for being a customer! Having endpoints in high enforcement so that only the files that are approved are allowed to run. The ability to single out the most threatening endpoints.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a Google style search to eliminate redundant rules. I would also like to have the panes freeze on pages so I could see the column names as I scroll down.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DO NOT fail to account for the value from the User Exchange! Many members are top IR and MSSP professionals. These are the very people you pay to come in and help if you have been breached. They are sharing their findings and helping you configure the product to stop advanced threats.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Protecting endpoints from malware. Knowing what software exists within our organization. Having all of our endpoints in high enforcement gives us a consistent level of protection and helps eliminate lateral movement of any threats that might get in. The console also helps uncover endpoints that have general OS health issues so we can address them quickly.

"Carbon Black offers Endpoint detection and blocking granularity like never before!"

What do you like best?

With Carbon Black on our endpoints, we were able to detect and block bit coin mining software that wasn't even detected my our AV software. Using a score from Virus Total threat feed, Carbon Black alerted us of the malware. Carbon Black showed us in detail how the exe was spawned, which processes were involved and that it was communicating to an external IP address. Through the carbon black console, we were able to connect to the machine and delete the exe. Then we set the file (hash) to be banned, this way any endpoints in the future would not be able to run this process, keeping our Enterprise free of these resource stealing bit mining. This is just one real world example of how Carbon Black has paid for itself in our environment.

What do you dislike?

There isnt too much to dislike but if I had to pick it would probably be the console, it could be a little more user intuitive but we are sending our CB data to Splunk, so we use the console minimally.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test CB out in a POC and you are sure to realize its ROI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Threat hunting and detection and banning hashes are all uses of CB.

"Great company, Great product. Carbon Black makes sure your implementation is successful."

What do you like best?

Carbon Black Enterprise Protection works exactly as advertised. Whether it’s malicious software or just unwanted software Carbon Black Enterprise protection stops it all while allowing what we want. We see the benefits daily. Since being in High Enforcement we have seen numerous cases of Ransom-ware stopped, along with tons of unwanted software from being installed. I wear many hats in my role and work with many technologies, and no company I work with offers the quality of services that Carbon Black does. Their Training, Planning and Implementation Services, Support, User Community, and Tech Assessments ensure customer success.

What do you dislike?

We have a handful of 3rd party unknown, unsigned software packages that can be tricky to keep running seamlessly to the end user. Especially when these packages auto update themselves. You really need to have a good understanding of these packages to be able to create the rules needed to allow them to function. Bit9 Support is great on helping you out with these rare cases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Contact Carbon Black and setup a trial. I think you will be sold.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Number one is definitely stopping malicious software from executing. Shortly before rolling out Carbon Black Enterprise protection we were hit with a couple instances of Ransom-ware. Since rolling out Carbon Black in High Enforcement Mode we have had none. On top of stopping malicious software Carbon Black EP stops tons of unwanted software. We have some users who are local admins on their PC's due to a 3rd party applications requirements. Carbon Black allows this software to run, while keeping the Local admins from installing unwanted or malicious items, even with Admin Rights. We also have a level of visibility that we have never had. Paired with Carbon Black Enterprise Response you will know exactly what is going on in your Environment.

"Everything you wanted outside of traditional AV that you never realized you wanted."

What do you like best?

Deep intelligence looking at both threats from the cloud (external connectors) and simple file based looks and reputation.

With traditional AV, you have signatures and other outdated technology. With Carbon Black Enterprise Protection, you can see not only what is suspected, but also what files appeared in the timeframe. You can also block certain files, get notifications, prevent users from installing certain programs and the like. Instead of a clunky engine that just scans all day long, you get information you can actually use both for preventing malware/viruses/worms, but also tracking user behaviors and other important information.

What do you dislike?

This isn't a "install and walk away" product. There is a lot of setup. I don't like this in the sense that I don't have a ton of time to set it up. However I will say that the more time you put into it, the more time you will ultimately save. Just be aware there is a significant investment up front that needs to happen to see gains. Else you are wasting your time.

Also, as of time of writing I'm not able to push the agents out from the console, which is annoying as I have to be at the station to install it, or use other installation tools.

You also need to change your mindset regarding how this works as compared to traditional AV, and doesn't register in Windows as an "Antivirus" product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Problems Solved:

1. Visibility into the endpoint regarding files installed, changes etc.

2. Software installation blocking

3. Advanced Malware/program launch

Benefits:

1. Lightweight footprint with up to date analytics and protections from changing threat landscapes.

2. Configuration for a single program, then deploy across the enterprise.

3. More understanding of problems created with the product (if any) with the good logging.

"It works as advertised"

What do you like best?

The customization that can be added to the product allow it to be extremely flexible. It can be deployed to anyone from your administrative staff to software developers. The product also has self-updating features, where rules are automatically added so applications that have their own auto-update can do so successfully.

What do you dislike?

Infrastructure requirements are very heavy for large companies. The push is for large environments to be on physical hardware, but most large companies utilize some sort of virtual hardware. The product does not currently scale well for large organizations that have diverse support structures.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Viewfinity and/or Beyondtrust. They don't do exactly the same thing, but have capabilities similar to Bit9.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

On any given day we have thousands of new files being introduced into the environment. The product is used to limit users from running applications that have not been pre-approved. I can't recall having a virus outbreak since we moved the PCs to a high-enforcement/lockdown state.

"CarbonBlack Protection is the real deal"

What do you like best?

The best part of the CB-EP tool is that it works! Using CB-EP we have reduced workstation re-stages from thousands a month to under 100. Our "category A" virus infections are below 15 each month, and only seen on systems outside of high enforcement. We are blocking hundreds of malicious files each week.

What do you dislike?

The biggest dislike is that competitors to CB try to pitch whitelisting technology that is years behind in capabilities and lacking in features. Management sees this as redundant technology when they talk with the competitors sales staff. The CB-EP tool is in a league of its own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will need to change your company culture, but in the end it is worth the effort.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CB-EP is the primary endpoint protection tool we have. We have this on 75,000 endpoints with 95% in high enforcement. Without CB-EP we would be re-active vs. being pro-active in preventing threats in our environment.

"Carbon Black Customer Service is top-notch"

What do you like best?

I appreciate that CB takes the time to walk us through the deployment but then continue to follow up with us on any concerns/issues we might have as we go from walking to running. We've had some issues with our server and every time CB has been able to resolve it quickly and professionally. That says volumes about their capabilities and belief in their product.

What do you dislike?

There's quite a bit of functionality in the API that I hope moves into the product itself in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other good endpoint detection products out there but none give the remediation and integration options that Carbon Black does. There's a bit of a curve to get it tuned and set up the way you want but they're there the whole way to help. I see us being able to automate functions with CB that we couldn't have dreamed of doing 6 months ago.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its been a huge boon in quickly re-mediating endpoint malware issues using the live response. We're also recognizing how often crapware gets packaged with legitimate downloads are are taking steps to eliminate this issue. We love the ability to pivot from a single IOC across the entire enterprise to see how deep an issue may be.

"Had a great experience so far"

What do you like best?

White listing that works! We were getting eaten alive by crypto virus encrypting our users data. Started to role out microsofts SRP which worked but then started blocking useful things like webex. So being able to approve apps and installers is very useful.

What do you dislike?

It can be hard to get rules correct. Would be nice if you could put an endpoint in low enforcement for say 20 minutes with out them having to enter a key.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Stopping cryptowall and other malware. Whitelisting applications we trust and stopping all of the others.

"Usage of Bit9 to support compliance with unsupported systems"

What do you like best?

I find that the product is highly configurable, but at the same time the console is simple and easy to use. We were able to have the system up and running and integrated with our SIEM with little effort. In addition, Support has been quick to respond, and the team at Bit9 are always ready to assist.

What do you dislike?

We did not really have any negative experiences. Nothing to complain about.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend at the very least to do a POC.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had 3 main issues to solve:

1. We had some systems which were out of support, and patches are no longer available.

2. We have some devices which are "air-gapped" for a majority of the time (tablets). The application that is running on them requires elevated privilege. We wanted to be able to maintain the integrity of the devices

3. We have some other devices which are portable, and want to ensure that if unauthorized USB devices are plugged in, we can block and notify.

Benefits realized:

1. We were able to rapidly deploy the solution fulfill a gap. Resources required were minimal, and the product allowed us to have enhanced visibility.

2. We were able to allow the business to use the tablets, while still maintaining integrity

3. We were able to protect our portable devices

4. We are able to report for our PCI business as usual

"Powerful Product for Control of Your Environment"

What do you like best?

This product really works. It analyzes everything being installed or executed. Even script files. It will stop anything malicious. There are many filters for events and you can group by many parameters. Create as many policies as you want for "special attention" computers. Get alerts in your mail.

What do you dislike?

It is easy to be overwhelmed by the volume of information available. Everybody's environment is different so take you time learning what is normal in yours before you tighten up the policies that block execution. Roll it out slowly so you are not flooded with requests for approval. Have well-thought out processes in place for managing approval requests. Some selections are not "sticky" so going back to previous pages you have to re-filter and that is annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This will require significant time to set up and customize for your environment. Be prepared to have an admin spend up to 50% of their time for several months until you have it dialed in.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like everyone, we want to stop zero day attacks. This stops everything... unless it is an "approved" program being used maliciously. If you get Carbon Black you can detect that sort of behavior and you are really covered.

"Carbon Black(Formerly Bit9) Keeps us secure from ourselves"

What do you like best?

Sometimes our worst enemy is ourselves. Bit9 keeps us from going too quickly and installing things we'd regret later. It also allows us to monitor how our userbase is using and installing software.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes things will continually be blocked for no apparent reason, and that requires administrators to look into the issue. Getting users to understand that they can't delete a whitelisted file since it whitelists on an individual file level.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Users install things willy-nilly sometimes without thinking of the security ramifications. This allows us to monitor and guide our users and keep them from introducing malware onto our network.

"Great Endpoint detection"

What do you like best?

instantly being able to block malicious files across the enterprise in minutes. Also, we've implemented several custom rules which allow us to block other unusual activities on the endpoint. While we're not yet in high enforcement, we still see a lot of benefit from the blacklisting and event rule blocking functionality.

What do you dislike?

There is management overhead in maintaining a approved software/file list.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Advanced endpoint protection beyond AV. While we still run AV from one of the top AV vendors, we see great value from blacklisting and event rule blocking functions.

"Excellent if not slightly quirky security software package"

What do you like best?

Ease of rule design. Very low resource impact footprint on the clients. Very customizable.

What do you dislike?

Reporting is often lacking common sense features that need to be filled in via SQL queries. Sometimes rules do not work the way one would envision from the outset.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time with your roll-out and design of your rules. A long evaluation cycle can be the difference in breaking your environment or making it infinitely more secure.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are securing a POS endpoint environment to maintain PCI compliance for about 1000 locations across the US.

"Bit9 security application"

What do you like best?

SRS threat database and fast tech support. We like that we no longer have to worry about malware issues. A side effect it also prevents un-authorize software installations.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes files whitelisted will be blocked by the client. There are some performance hit with developers. Bit9 support has helped with those issues so it is much better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend trying it, we no longer have to clean and remove malware and virus. Bit9 also has a threat database that updates with new threats daily so if our anti-virus doesn't catch something we have Bit9 to catch it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have zero malware issues since using Bit9, it also prevents users from installing un-authorize software as a side benefit as we are in high enforcement.

What do you dislike?

Moving up the security chain requires knowing all of the applications that are in use by the business units. That can be a daunting task for companies with smaller IT staffs.
