The new integration will connect customers that leverage both Carbon Black’s market-leading endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution, Cb Response, with IBM Resilient’s advanced Response Orchestration Platform, empowering security teams to respond faster and more comprehensively to modern cyberattacks.

With this announcement, joint customers of Carbon Black and IBM Resilient can use the products in a tightly integrated way. Security Operation Centers (SOCs) can automate remediation tasks and orchestrate critical incident response activities, creating a streamlined, agile response function. The power of the combined technologies ensures security teams can keep up with the evolving nature of cyberattacks and efficiently respond to incidents.

Today’s businesses often depend on many different security solutions to protect their environments. Additionally, various departments (SOCs, IT, operations, HR) must work collaboratively to keep up with the speed of business.

The native integration enables users of both IBM Security and Carbon Black to automatically enrich new security incidents with deep endpoint data from Cb Response into the Resilient platform. Users can also leverage industry-leading threat intelligence, and remediate issues by banning malicious files.

This latest integration between Carbon Black and IBM Resilient benefits SOCs by allowing them to:

- Respond faster and more efficiently to incidents

- Gain enterprise-wide visibility via a hub for all incident response

- Free-up critical analyst time from mundane tasks to enable them to focus on the response

- Automatically collect and integrate endpoint data

- Enable high-speed SOC orchestration of endpoint remediation actions

“We are excited that IBM Security has expanded its partnership with Carbon Black,” said Tom Barsi, senior vice president of business and corporate development for Carbon Black. “The combination of Cb Response and Resilient’s leading orchestration response platform brings additional strength to SOCs and empowers security teams around the globe to automate remediation of advanced threats instantly.”

“Carbon Black and Resilient together are providing a powerful way for organisations to fight against end point attacks that continue to plague organisations,” said Ted Julian, VP of product management for IBM Security. “Carbon Black’s Cb Response provides a complete view of what’s happening across the enterprise. With the integration into Resilient, security teams can take action on that insight by orchestrating their response to any incident affecting the endpoint directly from the platform.”
