VMware Carbon Black Cloud Platform


Version: 2.4
Updated: Mar 4, 2024

VMware Carbon Black Cloud Platform Integration transform your security with intelligent endpoint and workload protection that adapts to your needs, allows security operators to collect CBC Alerts and Devices information and take action on remote endpoints to Quarantine it or update the Policy of endpoints.


  • Carbon Black Alerts Daemon (Daemon) - Automatically gather alerts from Carbon Black Cloud.
  • Add Alert Note (Notification) - Add a note to an alert.
  • Delete Endpoint File (Containment) - Delete a File from a device.
  • Disable Bypass (Containment) - Disable Bypass on specific Endpoint.
  • Dismiss Alert (Containment) - Dismiss an alert in Carbon Black Cloud with comments.
  • Dismiss Threat (Containment) - Dismiss a Threat in Carbon Black Cloud with comments.
  • Enable Bypass (Containment) - Enable Bypass on specific Endpoint, it should no longer be monitored but may need to in the future.
  • Execute Custom Script On Endpoint (Containment) - Execute a Powershell command on a windows endpoint to gather data.
  • Get CBC Alerts (Enrichment) - Queries all Alerts using input search criteria and returns a list of alerts.
  • Get Devices (Enrichment) - Retrieve info about a device.
  • Get Endpoint Vulnerabilities (Enrichment) - Get the vulnerabilities (CVEs) and their risks/exploitability identified for a given endpoint.
  • Get File (Enrichment) - Get the full contents of a suspicious MS Office or Powershell file that is executed on an endpoint.
  • Get Policies (Enrichment) - Get a list of Policies.
  • Get Process Details (Enrichment) - Get the most up-to-date metadata of a specific process.
  • Get Process Events (Enrichment) - Get relevant endpoint events of a watchlist hit. This is very resource-intensive for CBC and should be used sparingly.
  • Get Registry Key (Enrichment) - Identify if a specific registry key has been set.
  • Get Vulnerable Endpoints (Enrichment) - Given a vulnerability (CVE) identify which endpoints are vulnerable.
  • Kill Process By Path (Containment) - Kill a malicious process by path if it’s still running.
  • Kill Process By PID (Containment) - Kill a malicious process by PID if it’s still running.
  • List Endpoint Directory (Enrichment) - List the files, including metadata such as size and last write time directly from the endpoint.
  • List Running Processes (Enrichment) - Identify if the malicious process is still running.
  • Pause Background Scan (Containment) - If the endpoint is sensitive to high CPU, disable background scanning.
  • Quarantine Device (Containment) - When the endpoint is suspected to be compromised, isolate it so that the only network communication allowed is with Carbon Black Cloud.
  • Search Process (Enrichment) - Find all endpoints where a certain process (by name or hash) has been executed. Find all processes by reputation.
  • Start Background Scan (Containment) - Start Background Scan on an endpoint.
  • Unquarantine Device (Containment) - Remove the quarantine on the specified Device within Carbon Black.
  • Update Device Policy (Containment) - Move the endpoint to a more restrictive policy.
