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

7 Experts on Moving to a Cloud-Based Endpoint Security Platform
Everyday companies put more of their assets in digital form. Healthcare records, retail purchases and personnel files are just some of the many examples of how our entire lives have moved online. While this makes our interconnected lives more convenient, it also makes them more vulnerable to attack. The monetary benefits of exploiting these vulnerabilities have created an extremely profitable underground economy; one that mimics the same one we all participate in and has led to an increase in the sophistication and frequency of attacks. At the same time, mobility and cloud are changing the security landscape. We’ve moved from a centralized to a decentralized model as end users increasingly work on-the-go and access critical business applications and resources from anywhere. As such there is more emphasis on the endpoint and individual identities - from both the defender and the attacker - than ever before. As endpoints become smarter, new challenges emerge: emerging ransomware and 0-day exploits infect all kinds of systems with ease, while many attackers use no malware at all to accomplish their malicious goals. With all this change, we spoke to 7 leading security experts to identify what’s working and how they’ve influenced their organization to make the necessary changes before becoming the next victim.
