In August 2019, VMware announced its intent to acquire Carbon Black, a leading next-generation security cloud provider. Carbon Black has created an innovative cloud-native security platform, with a smart, lightweight agent, and an AI/ML-based Data Lake in the Cloud that provides comprehensive protection of endpoints and defense against a variety of threats. 


The acquisition of Carbon Black represents the evolution of VMware’s intrinsic security strategy, where security features are built into the infrastructure and across workloads, clients and applications. Together, built on its existing partnership, VMware and Carbon Black will be able to provide customers advanced threat detection and in-depth application behavior insight to stop sophisticated attacks and accelerate responses.
