3. VMware Carbon Black Cloud WorkloadTM

A huge announcement kicking off Day 1 at VMworld 2020, the launch of VMware Carbon Black Cloud Workload  combines Carbon Black’s security expertise with VMware’s deep knowledge of the data center in all its forms.

Our initial release of VMware Carbon Black Cloud Workload is designed to protect your critical servers and workloads that are hosted on the industry leading and award-winning vSphere platform. Adapting VMware Carbon Black’s advanced security capabilities to virtualized workloads, and leveraging VMware’s intimate knowledge of virtualization, we’re delivering a unified cloud workload protection (CWP) solution to augment your security posture across all phases of the workload lifecycle. Whether you are developing new virtualized applications, automatically scaling and growing your existing applications, or monitoring your long-running workloads, VMware Carbon Black Cloud Workload can help you reduce risk and improve overall security posture.

In addition, our unique position of working with the vSphere teams allows us to take advantage of the full capabilities of the ESXi platform and the hypervisor to reduce administrative overhead and reduce the number of agents and systems you rely on to secure your workloads. With one solution that offers a full Security Operations Center view (our classic VMware Carbon Black Cloud console) and vCenter plugins for the vSphere Admin, we are building bridges between distinct, distributed operational groups and accelerating the convergence of Security, Development and Operations into modern SecDevOps practices.
