Your endpoints are one of the most targeted assets in your organization—in 2017 alone, more than 50% of organizations experienced a data breach of some kind.At Carbon Black, we understand this risk, and are committed to providing the best possible endpoint protection.  In order to demonstrate this, we have partnered with Forrester to evaluate the potential return on investment (ROI) companies receive when they deploy their the next-generation antivirus (NGAV) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) on the CB Predictive Security Cloud.

The objective of this study was to identify the cost, benefit, flexibility, and risk factors that affect a company’s investment decision.  In order to achieve this, Forrester conducted multiple interviews with not only Carbon Black stakeholders, but also with seven of our customers who moved from traditional, signature based antivirus (AV) to the CB PSC.  The key findings were as follows…

Avoided Cost of a Data Breach

“Predictive analytics, customizable policies, and continuous offline protection reduce the risk of a breach by 20 percentage points.”

Forrester found that the PSC’s collection of unfiltered data combined with streaming analytics is uniquely positioned to uncover patterns and indicators that capture current threats and predict future ones. Our customizable policies let security and IT professionals create custom rules for different user groups which increases protections without impacting users.

Time Saving From Faster Investigation and Remediation and Less Frequent Reimaging

“Effective prevention and detection, comprehensive endpoint visibility, and intuitive attack visualizations reduced the time required to investigate, while Live Response sped up remediation — saving 24 hours per day.”

Prior to PSC deployment, it took hours to isolate an incident, stop it, determine the root cause, and assess the extent of the damage.  Often, the solution was not to remediate at all, but to simply reimage the machines. The PSC makes this easy. Not only does it stop threats before they execute, it also collects data constantly, making it easy to visualize the threat path and understand root cause.  Users can even isolate machines and delete threats remotely — right from the console. This real-time investigation and remote remediation reduces the need to reimage machines by 90%.

Cost Savings From Simplified Operations

“Consolidating to a single agent and moving to a cloud-deployment provides efficiency gains equivalent to two FTEs per year.”

Maintaining an on premise product is a drain to a company’s time and resources.  It requires

supporting infrastructure, the management of multiple alerts across multiple consoles, and for teams to consistently update policies and definitions. The PSC offers a solution that uses a single console, single agent, and single dataset with automatic updates in the cloud—eliminating all these issues.

Other benefits

Increased performance: After switching from legacy AV to the PSC, customers reported that machines booted exceptionally faster—taking a third of the time they had before.

Executive level confidence:  With the increased visibility the PSC provides, the guesswork was removed from security.  Teams can produce detailed reports and conduct deep investigations when needed.

Forrester calculated all of these benefits to add up to  261% ROI. To learn more about the benefits of switching to the PSC read the report.
