As organizations continue to move toward digital transformation, the digital workspace ecosystem of users, apps, endpoints, and networks continues to grow and evolve beyond the traditional perimeter. While the traditional perimeter dissolves, cyber threats evolve and new ones emerge. Security becomes even more integral in this new threat landscape and central to a modern digital workspace strategy.

To help better protect the digital workspace ecosystem, Carbon Black has announced an expanded collaboration with VMware with support for the Workspace ONE Trust Network, a new security approach that combines the industry’s first intelligence-driven digital workspace platform, Workspace ONE, with trusted security partner solutions to deliver predictive and automated security in the digital workspace.

As part of the Workspace ONE Trust Network approach, critical endpoint data, alerts, and events from Carbon Black’s next-generation antivirus (NGAV), Cb Defense, and the Cb Predictive Security Cloud (PSC), can be fed into and analyzed by Workspace ONE to enhance orchestration capabilities, analytics, and response/remediation.

In order to stop advanced threats, organizations require the full life cycle of prevention, detection, response, and, now, prediction capabilities. We are excited to support the Workspace ONE Trust Network and put the rich data from the Cb Predictive Security Cloud (PSC) to good use. The integration between the intelligence-driven Workspace ONE platform and Carbon Black’s PSC will help give customers the continuous risk monitoring and mitigation capabilities they need to meet modern security requirements

With the Cb Predictive Security Cloud and a commitment to openness and integrations, Carbon Black is empowering organizations with a modern approach to secure users, apps, endpoints, and networks.

  •   Simplified operations – one lightweight agent and an easy-to-use console with an extensible set of security services, all delivered from the cloud
  •   Empowered teams – services, tools, and global intelligence that help teams prioritize security tasks and take action quickly

Securing the Virtualized Data Center

In December 2017, Carbon Black and VMware announced a collaboration that aims to improve current approaches to cloud and data center security via a jointly developed solution that dramatically shrinks an organization’s attack surface, while empowering security teams with automated threat detection and remediation to react faster and more effectively to attacks.

As part of the collaboration, VMware AppDefense™ customers have the ability to leverage Carbon Black’s Predictive Security Cloud™ (PSC) reputation services. The jointly developed solution combines VMware AppDefense and Cb Defense’s advanced threat protection to provide a unique one-two punch for stopping threats to applications inside the data center.
