Challenges with using Carbon Black security products

Ineffective Threat Protection

Third-party testing has shown ThreatDown solutions offer superior protection compared to Carbon Black. ThreatDown’s offering covers many key areas that Carbon Black does not, such as Vulnerability Assessment, Patch Management, and DNS Filtering.

Too Much Complexity

Carbon Black’s tools are built for large organizations that have their own Security Operations Center and large, well-funded security teams. ThreatDown offers a single, easy-to-use agent, built for resource-constrained IT teams.

Limited Customer Support

G2 and Gartner Peer Insights reveal Carbon Black’s customer support has significantly gone downhill. ThreatDown is at the top of Gartner Peer Insights with users reporting “Exceptional support and service”.
