Carbon Black Leads Fast-Growing Next-Generation Endpoint Security (NGES) Market

New analyst report ranks Carbon Black ahead of all NGES players in the report, including CrowdStrike, Cylance and Symantec

WALTHAM, Mass., – December 21, 2017Carbon Black, a leading provider of next-generation endpoint security solutions, today announced findings from a new Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) report demonstrating the company’s continued leadership and innovation in the crowded next-generation endpoint security (NGES) space. This is the second consecutive NGES market sizing report by EMA where Carbon Black achieved the highest composite ranking, topping Symantec, CrowdStrike and Cylance.


The report comes on the heels of Carbon Black’s recent announcement of its CB Predictive Security Cloud ™ (PSC), an endpoint protection platform (EPP) delivering next-generation security and IT operations services through the cloud empowering customers to:

  • Get ahead of emerging attacks – preemptively address emerging threats and security gaps
  • Prioritize and take action – informs what to address first and provides built-in operational tools to take action quickly
  • Simplify the full endpoint stack – allows customers to add new services at any time without deploying new technology

With the addition of predictive capabilities, Carbon Black’s leading NGES platform protects customers with an innovative and adaptive security model consolidating prevention, detection, response, and prediction of advanced cyberattacks based on data from billions of real-time events.

“Carbon Black has continually adapted its solutions through innovation and acquisition to ensure it remains a consistently strong, leading solution provider,” said David Monahan, managing research director of security and risk management at EMA and author of the report. “Over the last few years, Carbon Black has thrived when faced with an increase in advanced endpoint threats, and continues to scale and expand its Predictive Security Cloud capabilities worldwide. As a result, Carbon Black currently has the highest composite rank of all of the NGES vendors in EMA’s latest report.”

Since its last report, published in 2015, EMA found the NGES market has grown 109 percent, booming from a market value of roughly $426 million (USD) at the close of 2015 to over $847 million (USD) by the end of 2017. EMA forecasts the NGES market to grow between 45 and 55 percent over the next five years.

According to EMA’s report, “[Carbon Black] will continue to push the market and its competitors to maintain pressure. The combination of technologies and push into the cloud expanded it far beyond what it once was and provide a layered defense model.”

“We’re continuing to see major disruption in the endpoint security market,” said Patrick Morley, CEO of Carbon Black. “As Carbon Black continues to push the boundaries of innovation with the Predictive Security Cloud, we’re honored to be noted as an NGES market leader and excited to continue to guide this major disruption in cybersecurity. As more enterprises look for solutions that go beyond traditional antivirus and signature-based detection, Carbon Black will continue to innovate and provide customers with comprehensive, cutting-edge endpoint protection.”
