Get automated multilayered protection against threats across email and endpoints

The Proofpoint and VMware Carbon Black technical integration gives our joint customers the ability to protect their people and endpoints from today’s threat landscape. It delivers additional security and expanded visibility to you—at no additional cost.

Post-Delivery Protection and Response

For multilayered post-delivery protection, TAP shares threat information with VMware Carbon Black Cloud (CBC). This provides you with enhanced security to protect your people, both through email and the endpoint. When TAP detects that a malicious file has been delivered via email, it can alert Proofpoint Threat Response Auto-Pull (TRAP) to quarantine any of those delivered messages. The message details will also be shared with Carbon Black Cloud to apply additional security controls to the endpoint for multilayered protection. Those are:

  • Adding the file hash to a CBC Enterprise EDR watchlist feed
  • Isolating the endpoint
  • Moving the endpoint into a policy
