Blumira’s modern SIEM platform integrates with VMware Carbon Black App Control (formerly CB Protection) to detect cybersecurity threats and provide an automated or actionable response to remediate when a threat is detected on an endpoint.
When configured, the Blumira integration with VMware Carbon Black App Control will stream server and workstation endpoint security event logs and alerts to the Blumira service for threat detection and actionable response.
