Offering Next-Gen security solutions



Carbon Black leads a new era of endpoint security by enabling organisations to disrupt advanced attacks, deploy the best prevention strategies for their business, and leverage the expertise of 10,000 professionals from IR firms, MSSPs and enterprises to shift the balance of power back to security teams.
Only Carbon Black continuously records and centrally retains all endpoint activity, making it easy to track an attacker’s every action, instantly scope every incident, unravel entire attacks and determine root causes. The company also offers a range of prevention options so that organisations can match their endpoint
defence to their business needs.
Recently Carbon Black, the leader in Next-Generation Endpoint Security (NGES), announced that Eric O’Neill, a former FBI counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism operative, has joined the company as national security strategist. O’Neill had helped to capture Robert Hanssen, considered by many to be the most notorious spy in US history
In this new role, O’Neill will provide insight and advice on strategic cyber-security issues and will work to enable Carbon Black’s active participation in the conversation about the national strategy for cyber security.
A practicing attorney who specialises in cyber security, counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism operations, O’Neill also will define and lead Carbon Black’s involvement in the national cyber-security burning issues.
Cyber security is one of the most significant issues faced by every industrialised country in the world. The problem has escalated quickly, but meaningful discussion among the industry, the government and top businesses is still in its infancy. O’Neill will work to facilitate Carbon Black’s contribution in helping to identify and articulate solutions to solve the growing cyber threat facing the nation, as well as underscoring the imperative to protect the endpoint.
“Working in cyber security for the government and the private sector over the past 20 years, I have seen first-hand how the endpoint has become the primary target of advanced threats and targeted attacks,” said O’Neill. “The information that threat actors want — trade secrets, customer data, medical records and much more — resides on computers, servers or other endpoint devices.
“I’m thrilled to be joining a company that is tackling one of cyber security’s hardest problems; how to secure our endpoints. The cyber-security industry and the government have a small window of opportunity to take decisive action to keep our information, economy, infrastructure and people safe in a rapidly escalating threat landscape.” O’Neill said.
O’Neill’s pivotal role in the 2001 capture of Hanssen, an FBI counter-intelligence agent who was convicted of 15 counts of espionage for selling US secrets to Russia, was the subject of the 2007 film Breach.
Carbon Black has been named number one in endpoint protection, incident response, and market share. Forward-thinking companies choose Carbon Black to arm their endpoints, enabling security teams to disrupt, defend and unite.

Earlier it was known with the name of Bit9 + Carbon Black, but last month the leader in NGES technology rechristened it to Carbon Black.
While the name has changed, there are no changes to the company’s strategy, product portfolio, technology direction and investments, or — most importantly — Carbon Black’s commitment to bringing its 2,000 worldwide customers and hundreds of partners the industry’s leading next-generation endpoint security products and services.
“Two years ago when Bit9 merged with Carbon Black, we combined our names to send a message to the market,” said Patrick Morley, Carbon Black CEO.
“We wanted to emphasise that Bit9, well known for its superior endpoint threat prevention, was joining with an emerging leader in endpoint threat detection and response. The combined name was always meant to be temporary until we achieved leadership in NGES.”
The company hired a leading market research firm to measure how buyers ranked 40 different attributes for the company’s brands and those of nine leading companies in the endpoint security market. Carbon Black ranked number one in more of the top-20 attributes than any other brand.
“The research proved that Carbon Black has tremendous brand equity and resonance in the market, and that’s why it’s the right choice for our company’s future,” said Morley.
