On Tuesday, Carbon Black announced its acquisition of Confer, a Boston-based NGAV company.  The Confer solution has been renamed “Cb Defense.”

Cb Defense uniquely combines behavioral-based prevention techniques with integrated detection and response capabilities to stop cyber attacks. Its cloud-based, deep-analytics approach blocks both malware and increasingly common malware-less attacks that exploit memory and scripting languages such as PowerShell. Once malware is blocked, Cb Defense gives organizations visibility into how the attack happened. This visibility enables businesses to proactively fix security problems.

Cb Defense uses a lightweight sensor that installs in less than a minute and consumes less than one percent of the CPU, disk and network. Once installed, Cb Defense can be completely managed from the cloud through an easy-to-use, web-based interface.
