Forrester Names Carbon Black a “Leader” in Endpoint Security

October 19, 2016 / Patrick Morley

This is a very exciting day for Carbon Black. Today, we were named an Endpoint Security  “Leader” in the Forrester Wave.™ We are the only Next-Gen AV company to be given this awesome distinction.

We secured the highest possible score in the detection criteria (5 out of 5), and the top score in the prevention criteria.  In the Forrester Research Inc. report, The Forrester Wave™ Endpoint Security Suites, Q4 2016, the author, Chris Sherman, writes: “Carbon Black offers a strong balance of prevention, detection, and remediation functions without relying on signature blacklists.”

Our customers demand excellence in prevention, detection and remediation. These high scores are a testament to the amazing work the Carbon Black team has done to design the most complete and disruptive endpoint-security platform on the market.

Forrester also addressed our commitment to innovation and a complete platform following our acquisition of NGAV leader, Confer. “With its more recent acquisition of Confer in 2016, the company demonstrates its commitment to a more balanced portfolio, with prevention and detection capabilities,” the report noted.  

Confer, now called Cb Defense, changes the game for behavioral prevention. Many solutions claim the ability to prevent threats, but when you look under the cover, these solutions are simply standard prevention capabilities that are regularly bypassed.

Security teams want to do more than simply block threats. They want to watch an attacker in action and use that intelligence to get to the root cause of the attack – to SOLVE THE PROBLEM.  We believe it’s our job to help organizations get to the root of their security issues, not simply block. With the Cb Endpoint Security Platform, we are doing just that.

More than 2,100 customers use Cb Endpoint Security Platform to replace ineffective antivirus, lock down critical systems, and arm incident-response teams with the most advanced tools to proactively hunt down threats. Our customers can choose whether or not their security solution will be hosted in the cloud or on-prem.  

Please join me in congratulating the entire Carbon Black team on its leadership position in the endpoint security market.

With this leadership comes enhanced responsibility. We are indefatigably committed to improving our customers’ security programs with continued innovation, world-class customer service and technology that will be perennially included in the Forrester’s elite “leader” wave.
