Bit9 + Carbon Black Executive Quote: Tom Barsi, vice president of business development
"More MSSPs use Bit9 + Carbon Black than any other next-generation endpoint security solution for good reason," said "Our MSSP partners choose to work with us because we give them the most advanced, open and extensible endpoint threat prevention, detection and response solution in the market. While other security vendors, such as FireEye, are narrowly focused on delivering managed security services using just their own products, we are focused on empowering all MSSPs in the market. Given today's fast-moving threat landscape, MSSPs that try to go it alone with home-grown technologies are using slingshots in the war against advanced malware and targeted attacks.
