WALTHAM, Mass. — February 5, 2019 ––Carbon Black(NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in next-generation endpoint security delivered via the cloud, today announced the results of a new Forrester Consulting study,  “The Total Economic Impact  Of The CB Predictive Security Cloud.” In the study, Forrester found that participating organizations that use the CB Predictive Security Cloud experienced a return on investment (ROI) of up to 261 percent over three years.

The study also found that participating organizations who replaced traditional endpoint security with the PSC can realize significant business benefits and cost savings.

Customers Forrester interviewed said they selected Carbon Black for its improved protection, visibility and the ability to act quickly, and simplified operations. Top benefits that customers attributed to their investments in the PSC include:

  • Predictive analytics, customizable policies, and continues offline protection reduced the risk of a breach by 20 percentage points.
  • 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.
  • Real-time investigation and remediation reduced the need to reimage machines by 90%.
  • Consolidating to a single agent and shifting to a cloud deployment saved two full time equivalents (FTEs) per year.

In addition to these quantified benefits, Forrester identified additional benefits to customers of increased performance and executive-level confidence.

“Security teams face a very real challenge of needing to extract more value from their investments, while also facing an evolving threat landscape and limited visibility into their security stacks,” said Patrick Morley, Carbon Black’s Chief Executive Officer. “In our view, Forrester’s study supports what we have always believed – that the CB Predictive Security Cloud can make it easier for customers to address these challenges, while also benefiting from significant cost savings.”
