Carbon Black Hosts Sold-Out Developer Day During #CBConnect19

With growing momentum for the PSC, 13 new partners join the Carbon
Black Integration Network (CBIN) utilizing the company’s open APIs

SAN DIEGO & WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Carbon
Black
(NASDAQ:CBLK), a leader in cloud endpoint protection, today
welcomed more than 150 developers to its sold-out Developer Day, kicking
off Carbon Black’s annual three-day user conference, #CBConnect19.
Developer Day features in-depth, technical workshops designed to
accelerate developers’ ability to advance API and integration techniques
and extend Carbon Black’s open cloud platform, the CB
Predictive Security Cloud® (PSC)
.

“To create the strongest security posture possible in today’s evolving
threat landscape, companies need access to rich and comprehensive
endpoint data,” said Scott Lundgren, Carbon Black’s Chief Technology
Officer. “By offering open APIs for all of our products and making every
layer of the Carbon Black stack natively extensible, our customers can
custom-build their security stack with integrated solutions that quickly
and effectively address new threats and offer better protection against
advanced threats.”

The PSC allows third-party developers to leverage Carbon Black’s
unfiltered data from the endpoint to the cloud. With native
extensibility, the PSC makes it easy for developers to improve an
organization’s security posture by building extensions including:

  • Integrations with external systems, such as SIEMs and custom-analysis
    pipelines, to streamline reporting and analytics across the tech stack
  • Scripting of endpoint actions via external triggers, such as alerts,
    allowing the automated orchestration of custom actions to be taken on
    the endpoint
  • Endpoint data collection via osquery,
    an open source monitoring and collection tool that anyone can extend
  • Customized threat intelligence to enhance real-time detection of
    malicious events

Carbon Black Launches Open Source Tool For High-Volume Analytics

At this year’s Developer Day, the company announced the release of an
event query router (EQR), a new, open-source data analytics tool that
gives data scientists the ability to execute large-scale queries on
real-time big data streams without writing code or batching
transactions. EQR was initially built by Carbon Black engineers to
address the needs of our Threat Analytics Unit (TAU) for threat research
and our managed detection service, CB ThreatSight™, which requires
high-bandwidth, low-latency access to analyze billions of security
events generated by our customers through the PSC. Recognizing the
benefit of being able to quickly consume streams of data at massive
scale for a range of industries and applications, Carbon Black is
delivering EQR as an extensible open-source tool accessible through the Carbon
Black GitHub repository
.

“Access to large quantities of data through the cloud is revolutionizing
the way we’re approaching endpoint security — and the ability to not
only analyze that data, but transform it into actionable security
insights for our customers quickly and effectively, is critical to our
success,” said Lundgren. “We’re pleased to be able to share EQR with
other developers in a multitude of industries, who are faced with the
same big data challenges.”

Carbon Black Integration Network

In conjunction with Developer Day at #CBConnect19, Carbon Black
announced that 13 new partners have joined the Carbon
Black Integration Network
. CBIN represents vendors, customers and
security technologists that have extended Carbon Black products – often
through custom data ingestion or open APIs documented on GitHub – to
build integrations that benefit an organization’s security posture and
can be leveraged openly by the entire security community. Currently,
more than 120 partners have built more than 140 documented integrations.

New CB Integration Network partners include: Active
Countermeasures
, Akamai,
Cyber
Crucible
, D3
Security
, Illusive
Networks
, JupiterOne,
LookingGlass
Cyber Solutions
, Panaseer,
Pliant,
Remediant,
SafeBreach,
ThreatWarrior
and XM
Cyber
.

“Managing endpoints is key to maintaining an organization’s threat
posture. Being a part of Carbon Black’s Integration Network and
leveraging their API makes it easy for JupiterOne Customers to collect
endpoint information from Carbon Black, including how the security agent
is configured, and correlate it with the rest of the organization’s
infrastructure. By mapping the vulnerable endpoints and the rest of the
resources a user can access across your infrastructure, JupiterOne with
Carbon Black enables a better understanding of the significance of
threats,” said Erkang Zheng, General Manager at JupiterOne.

“Enterprises are facing a security visibility issue; they are
struggling to keep up with the proliferation of devices across cloud,
mobile and IoT. We believe the integration between Panaseer’s Continuous
Controls Monitoring platform and Carbon Black’s rich datasets, through
its extensive open APIs, provides enterprises with an unparalleled view.
It allows customers to validate Carbon Black has been installed across
all devices and identify any coverage gaps. Through Panaseer’s
remediation campaign tracking they can also monitor the progress and
current status of any required corrective actions,” said Charaka
Goonatilake, Chief Technology Officer at Panaseer.

“The openness of Carbon Black and the quality of the data it provides
allows Pliant.io to automate effective responses with unprecedented
confidence.
Pliant’s workflow automation visually abstracts code
from process allowing users to quickly create very sophisticated and
robust workflows across multiple domains or silos responding immediately
to threats uncovered by Carbon Black,” said Vess Bakalov, Chief
Executive Officer at Pliant.io.
