Today is another exciting day for Carbon Black and IBM! This morning we announced Carbon Black has expanded its relationship with IBM Security  as the Cb Predictive Security Cloud (PSC)will be part of the newly launched IBM X-Force Threat Management Services to further combat advanced threats across the entire threat lifecycle. 

We’ve also announced that strong customer adoption of existing Carbon Black / IBM integrations has fueled two new integrations between Cb Defense and IBM Security’s QRadar and BigFix.

Cb Predictive Security Cloud and IBM X-Force Threat Management Services

IBM X-Force Threat Management Services are designed to elevate the focus of the IT team from remedial tasks to more impactful work (such as threat hunting), along with the necessary threat insight, prevention, detection, response, and recovery required to manage risk and action in today’s cyber threat environment.

In alignment with the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, IBM X-Force Threat Management Services provide expertise, AI, and orchestration across all phases of the cyber-threat lifecycle, reducing risk and response time. Data from Carbon Black’s Predictive Security Cloud (PSC) will help fuel these services.

Carbon Black’s deep relationship with IBM continues to be reflected with strong customer adoption and product integrations. With the Predictive Security Cloud, we are empowering IBM Security’s world-class security experts to gain unmatched visibility across an organization’s endpoints. The result is better cybersecurity hygiene and additional peace of mind when it comes to defending against advanced cyberattacks.

Cb Defense + QRadar Integration

Carbon Black also announced the “Cb Defense App for QRadar,” available via the IBM Security App Exchange. (The IBM Security App Exchange enables IBM teams, customers, business partners, and other developers to create and share applications that integrate with QRadar, IBM BigFix and other IBM Security solutions.) This integration uses QRadar to automatically poll Cb Defense for new endpoint data in real-time and pull that info into QRadar for further risk or incident analysis. Customers can access Cb Defense data from a tab in the QRadar console and benefit from:

  • Visibility from a single pane of glass
  • Speed to detect/respond from SOC
  • Extended SIEM down to endpoint
  • Ease of implementation

Cb Defense + IBM BigFix Integration

Carbon Black also announced the “Cb Defense Integration for IBM BigFix,” also available via the IBM Security App Exchange. The Cb Defense + IBM BigFix integration allows IT Ops to install or uninstall Cb Defense sensors and report Cb Defense sensor deployment status and health, like whether a sensor is running or the last signature update time, all available from IBM BigFix Console.

Benefits to customers include:

  • Faster/easier deployment of anti-malware solutions
  • Improved compliance monitoring and reporting
  • Remediation at scale
  • Bridging the gap between security and IT operations

How the Cloud Solves 10 Endpoint Security Problems for SMBs
Small and medium size businesses (SMBs) are facing massive cyber security challenges. In fact, according to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations report, 61% of breach victims in the previous year were businesses with fewer than 1000 employees. It’s time to proactively protect your company, and the place to start is your endpoints. Why? Because IDC research found that 70% of successful breaches begin at the endpoint. Traditional endpoint security can result in ten real and tangible problems that require lots of time and resources to address: 1. Managing Infrastructure 2. Preventing New Attacks 3. Getting the Help You Need 4. Identifying Problems 5. Responding Quickly to Threats 6. Keeping Up to Date 7. Securing Remote Workers 8. Integrating Security Products 9. Managing Multiple Agents 10. Slowing Down Endpoints
