Acunetix by Invicti

It is suited well for ad-hoc and scheduled application vulnerability scans. You must review the results to manually filter out false-positives. You must always keep in mind that this is only a vulnerability scan. It can only find a certain class of vulnerabilities, and it can only do that so well. You should definitely not rely on this tool alone for identifying problems. That being said, I have used it along with every other major commercial vulnerability scanner and find it to the best overall ROI compared to more expensive commercial scanners that don't necessarily give you a better user experience or better vulnerability results. I rarely need support from the vendor, but when I do, they have been responsive and able to solve the issue quickly.

VMware Carbon Black App Control (formerly Cb Protection)

Cb Protect is best suited somewhere where you want to maximize the lockdown of workstations. So moving past no local admin rights to blocking specific applications and peripherals. The idea would be to have a list of applications you want to run, and then anything else is not able to be used. As stated prior, if you have a very fluid environment where you are having all sorts of new applications installed frequently (I feel for you!!) this is still do-able, but it misses the general idea. I think especially in environments that are more sensitive to new applications, like banks, healthcare systems etc, this is a good fit. The ability to look at application levels, drift, unapproved software etc is very useful.

Cons

Acunetix by Invicti

  • Does not support multiple endpoints well (e.g. apps and services that do not reside at the same URL).
  • Has authentication problems with modern enterprise apps which involve a lot of redirects to unrelated endpoints, federated IDs, SSO, etc. This is related to the first point.
  • The vulnerability detection capability is not as robust as Burp Suite Pro + extensions, Metasploit + auxiliary modules, Nmap + scripts, etc.

VMware Carbon Black App Control (formerly Cb Protection)

  • Cost - Cb Protect is part of now a 3 fold protection offering by Carbon Black. The other parts give you visibility and a more traditional antivirus (Conifer I believe). Once you price all three together, things get expensive. You get what you pay for I guess, as alternatives cost less, but you do lose out on features.
  • On-Prem - I don't believe this has changed, but when we first set up the only option was on-prem. This has a LOT of benefits, but with more mobile users, it can become a bit of a hassle for management and updating policies. A cloud option, or cloud connector would be nice.
  • Application whitelisting outperforms traditional AV/Malware protection but also takes a bit more babysitting. You end up spending a lot of time looking at new programs etc coming down the pipe. A great example is products that self update. These can become a pain as the product updates typically don't show up as signed, or not signed the way Protect looks for, so you end up whitelisting them as they come up, and depending on how often and how many you have in the environment it can be annoying.
  • Protect is nice, but you really need to also have Response to see a holistic view. Else you're going endpoint to endpoint if you are breached/infected, and that gets tedious quickly. However this also adds to the cost.

Alternatives Considered

Acunetix by Invicti

Every year, we re-evaluate the tools we are using and licensing. We balance the ever-changing vendor licensing-models, costs, tool features/usability, etc. For the last few years, this has been the best overall commercial tool for our specific use case. However, this is only one of many tools that we use and need.

VMware Carbon Black App Control (formerly Cb Protection)

VMware Carbon Black App Control [(formerly Cb Protection)] is just much more advanced and gives administrators much more insight into the security framework. The cost is higher but at the same time the features are much more advanced. It is also easy to move throughout the program and to set up and configure the system.

Return on Investment

Acunetix by Invicti

  • Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run.
  • Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration.
  • A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc.

VMware Carbon Black App Control (formerly Cb Protection)

  • Protect took care of our objective, which was to protect the endpoints against rogue software and to help with preventing users from installing software that wasn't necessary/desired.
