Overall Satisfaction with Cb Defense

We are using this solution across all the endpoints in our entire organization. CB Defense addresses potential endpoint infections and compromises in security.
  • It uses a thin, low-performance consuming, client.
  • It constantly monitors endpoint activity and processes, efficiently, and effectively blocking harmful apps.
  • It not only identifies and blocks apps known to be harmful, but prevents unknown, suspicious processes/apps from executing unless allowed in a defined policy.
  • It does not offer a way to scan individual files on your endpoint. Some users like to be able to do this. Personally, given the effectiveness of the agent, I don't see a need for this, but it would appease some users.
  • By reducing the instances of infections, and so the cost of remediation, we have already realized a better ROI than with prior solutions of this kind.
  • In providing a cloud-based management portal, we are better able to manage the protection of our endpoints regardless of their connectivity to our LANs.
  • We are also able to prevent unauthorized apps from launching, giving us another way to conform endpoint use to company policies.
CB Defense offered a more comprehensive way to manage and protect all our endpoints irrespective of their presence on/off our LANs. It also gives our administrators dynamic visibility into the activity/processes running on our endpoints. The other solutions would require either examining client based logs, or waiting for the clients to connect to our on premise server to upload logs.
First, I need to disclose that our support is provided by SecureWorks. We purchased CB Defense from them, and they provide 24x7 monitoring and notification services for the solution and its deployment on our endpoints. To date, we are very pleased with this arrangement.
