Carbon Black – the A Team
Advanced viruses routinely penetrate traditional protection and antivirus technologies that protect endpoints and servers. This is the time to arm your endpoints with the best protection available – Bit9 & Carbon Black – a security solution comprising two leading products in a cloud intelligence which, together, provide the ultimate endpoint protection.
Bit 9 monitors and records all activities at endpoints and servers to detect, prevent and respond to cyberattacks that evade standard security solutions. When a virus disguises as an unknown file type penetrates the system, it is immediately blocked. However, the file clones itself and changes its identity, forcing the organizational systems to spend more time to overcome the attack.
Bit9 operates using a white list. Only files that are included in the white list, whether sent by email or loaded to an endpoint via a disk on key or Flash drive can enter the system. In effect, this neutralizes the need to cope with each and every threat. Bit9 provides full granular control of endpoints and servers and of each application running in them. Bit9 uses the largest intelligence threat to map all file systems.
Carbon Black neutralizes threats by checking each file entering a system. If it is infected by any threat, it reports to Bit9. At the same time, it sends it to a sandbox (safe area), where it is blocked and neutralized without risking the system. If Carbon Black finds that the file is safe, it allows the user to open it.
Carbon Black offers investigation and full kill-chain capabilities, as well as a heuristic detection system based on rules configured by both the system and the user.
