Abstract:
Carbon Black is the leading next generation endpoint security company, formed when endpoint prevention and application control company Bit9 acquired endpoint detection and response company Carbon Black in 2014. The combined company existed as the compound name Bit9-Carbon Black until early 2016, when the current name "Carbon Black" was adopted for the combined company. The most recent acquisition of Confer Endpoint Security augments Carbon Black's prevention, detection, and response capabilities with a lightweight, next-gen AV offering for customer looking for a simple yet powerful way to replace legacy AV, as well as numerous additional features to be addressed herein. If integrated properly with their existing portfolio, the enhancements to malware-less prevention and detection and the additional response automation will significantly increase the competitive standing in the marketplace for a company who is already the market leader in several ways.
