Carbon Black joins forces with VMware to ramp up data center security
Carbon Black, a company specializing in next-generation endpoint security, has joined forces with VMware to give VMware AppDefense TM customers the ability to leverage Carbon Black’s Collective Defense Cloud (CDC).
AppDefense is a new security solution that uses the virtual infrastructure to discover capture application intended state and can detect and automate response to attacks that attempt to manipulate those applications.
VMware AppDefense will leverage Carbon Black’s Collective Defense Cloud (CDC) to classify process reputation, helping security teams determine which behaviours require additional verification and which behaviors can be pre-approved.
Through the new collaboration which will combine Carbon Black’s Collective Defense Cloud with VMware AppDefense, mutual customers benefit from:
- Strong behavioural controls to protect against attacks of virtual and cloud environments
- Orchestrated and automated remediation capabilities through VMware vSphere and NSX
- Converged security and operational context through a single pane of glass
“Protecting virtual environments is a top priority for enterprises,” comments Tom Barsi, senior vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Carbon Black.
“With Carbon Black’s Collective Defense Cloud, mutual customers now have a unified security stack for the software-defined data center.”
Tom Corn, senior vice president, Security Products, VMware, says “With AppDefense, VMware is redefining security for the software-defined data center.”
“By working with Carbon Black, we are moving the industry towards a new security model and empowering customers to protect their virtualized environments from the latest advanced threats.”
