How VMware Carbon Black Workload for Amazon secures workloads

Cloud computing company VMware introduced VMware Carbon Black Workload for Amazon Web Services purpose-built protection for securing both traditional and modern workloads.

The solution uses a single unified console that integrates into existing infrastructure and security so IT teams can reduce surface attack and strengthen security posts while achieving visibility for workloads running on AWS VMware Cloud and on-premises.

“VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS improves collaboration between these teams via a single consolidated platform for all workloads, regardless of where they’re running, to help defenders see and stop more threats. This real-time visibility into workloads helps prevent attacks on your most valuable assets and provides AWS customers a finite surface area to protect,” said VMware security business unit vice president of product management and co-general manager Jason Rolleston.

By enabling security teams to see workloads that are ephemeral and transient in nature, VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS provides context to help AWS customers better secure applications.



Automatic gathering and listing of vulnerabilities help identify risk and harden workloads, further shrinking the attack surface, while CI/CD packages for sensor deployment further simplify agent lifecycle management.

Additionally, by onboarding AWS account, customers can achieve better insights into the workloads that beyond when the VMware Carbon Black Workload sensor was first extended.

VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS combines foundational vulnerability assessment and workload hardening with next-generation antivirus (NGAV) to analyze attack behavior patterns over time and help stop never-seen-before attacks.

With enterprise threat hunting for workloads that includes behavioral endpoint detection and response (EDR), customers can turn threat intelligence into a prevention policy to avoid hunting for the same threat twice.

This telemetry feeds into VMware Contexa, a full-fidelity threat intelligence cloud that shrinks the gap between attackers and defenders while enabling greater visibility, control, and anomaly detection for workloads.
