Salt Security API Protection Platform

Easy deployment for common cloud API architectures, so it's very easy to at least get visibility into what you have. In house developed apps with a custom infrastructure could be a difficult integration.

Carbon Black App Control

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.

Carbon Black App Control

  • 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

Salt Security API Protection Platform

We tried controls offered by the IaaS providers but these were hard to manage and did not provide the visibility we wanted. We also protected APIs with a normal WAF but this was only helpful for assets we knew about and API attacks were not caught by the WAF.

Carbon Black App Control

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

Salt Security API Protection Platform

  • Allowed us to identify attackers and take action on them.

Carbon Black App Control

  • 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.
