Carbon Black Named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms

For the second consecutive year, Carbon Black has been named a “Visionary” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.

For this year’s edition of the MQ, Gartner evaluated Cb Defense, our flagship solution built on the Cb Predictive Security Cloud ™ (PSC).

Our vision for the PSC is game changing for endpoint security, and it’s a vision that’s reflected in Gartner’s latest report.

According to the “Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms” by Ian McShane, Avivah Litan, Eric Ouellet, and Prateek Bhajanka, January 24, 2017: “The most visionary and leading of vendors in 2018 and 2019 will be those that use the data collected from their EDR capabilities to deliver actionable guidance and advice that is tailored to their clients. Detecting known IOCs and suspicious behavior is only one side of the EPP coin — solutions must detect and proactively alert on weaknesses or vulnerabilities that are being exploited right now, or are likely to be exploited in the future.”

That is precisely what we are doing with the Cb Predictive Security Cloud…and more.
