VMware is pioneering modern endpoint security to help defend against cybercriminals who are innovating faster than traditional defenses can withstand. Modern enterprises have more users, devices, workloads and endpoints distributed across the workforce – demanding a different approach to security. VMware delivers better security that is not just built in, it’s built differently with a holistic security architecture that supports customers on the journey to Zero Trust. VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint protects against the full spectrum of modern cyberattacks while reducing blind spots and detection and response time.

An analysis by Forrester titled “The Total Economic Impact™ of VMware Carbon Black Cloud May 2020” found that customers achieve a 379% ROI in three years when replacing legacy endpoint protection platforms (EPP) with VMware Carbon Black Cloud.

As a next-generation antivirus (NGAV) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution with an easy-to-manage, cloud native EPPs, VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint combines prevention and automated detection to defend from today’s advanced cyberattacks and distributed endpoints. Integration with VMware’s Carbon Black Cloud universal agent and console means customers can consolidate endpoint agents and manage all prevention needs through a unified platform, delivering breakthrough prevention.

By going beyond just collecting data around malicious behavior, VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint redefines traditional endpoint security and continuously gathers endpoint activity data to build a comprehensive dataset to analyze. The solution applies behavioral analytics to endpoint events to streamline detection, prevention and response to cyberattacks – empowering customers to protect their organization and contextualize threats.

How we are different

Multilevel protection to combat traditional endpoint security vulnerabilities: Most cyberattacks encompass tactics such as lateral movement, island hopping and ransomware. Advanced hacking capabilities and services for sale on the dark web compound the issue. VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint thwarts attacks by employing multiple protection layers, including file reputation and heuristics, machine learning, and behavioral models, to analyze endpoint activity and block malicious behavior. Preventing all types of attacks before they reach critical systems. Flexible behavioral prevention policies make protection easily tailorable to customers’ distinct needs.
Simplified security stack meets easy-to-use cloud native platform: VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint consolidates multiple endpoint security capabilities using one endpoint agent and console. Minimizing incident response downtime and returning critical CPU cycles back to the business, VMware helps customers free up resources with an easy-to-use cloud platform for fast integration into existing systems. VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint offers comprehensive prevention and endpoint activity analysis capabilities, and enables customers to better operationalize security to make more effective use of resources.
Prioritized alerts, attack chain visualizations, and in-product response capabilities: Customers save money and reduce time investigating and responding to incidents with VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint. With visibility into the entire attack chain and endpoint activity analysis, VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint eliminates the time customers would normally spend on tracking down which systems were affected and when. With remote response capabilities, Customers can also minimize downtime to endpoints and instantly roll back attacks straight from the console with remote response capabilities. This better equips customers to solve the threats of today and tomorrow. VMware customers also benefit from insights into the latest attacks and remediation tips from the VMware Threat Analysis Unit and industry peers.
