- VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS combines next-generation antivirus (NGAV) with workload hardening and fundamental vulnerability assessment to evaluate attacker behavior.
- VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS allows security teams to see transient workloads and provides authoritative context to help AWS customers secure modern applications.
VMware, Inc. announced the launch of the VMware Carbon Black Workload for Amazon Web Services (AWS). It is a new product that offers superior protection and is designed to protect classic and modern workloads. Using a single unified console that integrates into current infrastructure, security and Information Technology (IT) teams can decrease attack surfaces, reinforce security postures, and achieve a uniform and unified visibility for workloads running on AWS, VMware Cloud, and on-premises.
“Security and IT teams lack visibility and control in highly dynamic and distributed environments,” said Jason Rolleston, vice president of product management and co-general manager for VMware’s Security Business Unit. “VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS improves collaboration between these teams via a single consolidated platform for all workloads, regardless of where they’re running, helping defenders see and stop more threats. This real-time visibility into workloads helps prevent attacks on your most valuable assets and provides AWS customers with a finite surface area to protect.”
VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS allows security teams to see transient workloads and provides authoritative context to help AWS customers secure modern applications. The attack surface is further reduced by automatic vulnerability collecting and listing, hardening workloads, and CI/CD packages for sensor deployment that further streamline agent lifecycle management. Furthermore, by onboarding their AWS account, AWS clients can also get more thorough, comprehensive, and in-depth visibility into the workloads that go beyond the first deployment of the VMware Carbon Black Workload sensor.
VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS combines workload hardening and fundamental vulnerability assessment with next-generation antivirus (NGAV) to evaluate the attacker’s behavior patterns over time and thwart never-before-seen attacks. To prevent hunting for the same threat again, AWS customers can use enterprise threat hunting for workloads that integrate behavioral Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). This information goes into VMware Contexa, a full-fidelity threat intelligence cloud that narrows the gap between attackers and defenders and makes workloads more visible, in control, and capable of anomaly detection.
