How Our MDR Service for VMware Carbon Black Works

Critical Start MDR adapts to your environment to deliver the full power of VMware Carbon Black Endpoint and Enterprise EDR.

Our bi-directional integration ingests every endpoint alert from VMware Carbon Black into the Zero-Trust Analytics Platform® (ZTAP®), where they’re compared against known good behaviors in the Trusted Behavior Registry® (TBR) and playbooks auto-resolve known good alerts at scale. Alerts not matching the TBR are escalated to our SOC analysts for further enrichment and investigation. Best of all, we can take response actions on your behalf and we will work with you until remediation is complete.
