Bigfix + Carbon BlackBigfix Management and Provisioning of Carbon Black Agents
Integrating Carbon Black and IBM BigFix
Carbon Black, the leader in Next-Generation Endpoint Security (NGES), and IBM Security have entered into a security partnership designed to provide businesses with solutions that deliver a more simplified and streamlined way to protect against, accurately respond to, and manage cyber attacks. The first of its type, the partnership will deliver deep technical integration of Carbon Black’s next-generation endpoint security solution into IBM’s suite of security product offerings and service solutions.
The integration between IBM and Carbon Black allows organizations to detect, contain, investigate, and remediate security threats and attacks on endpoints across the enterprise. For integration details, please visit the IBM developerWorks wiki.
As part of the integration, BigFix and Carbon Black customers can leverage Fixlets to more easily deploy, monitor, and manage Carbon Black agents via BigFix. This will help joint customers facilitate better system administration and lifecycle management.
