VMware launched Carbon Black Workload for Amazon Web Services. The solution runs on AWS and secures on-premises and public cloud workloads.

Carbon Black Workload isn’t new. VMware launched the service in 2020. Deployment options were limited to on-premises. That changes with the arrival of Carbon Black Workload for Amazon Web Services. The service is now available on the AWS Marketplace.

Carbon Black Workload watches over all workloads running on a system. The solution recognizes suspicious changes to prevent attacks. If, for instance, a cybercriminal executes a payload and pushes an unknown workload to a system’s processor, Carbon Black Workload is the first to know.

Carbon Black Workload has allowed users to secure workloads on AWS cloud infrastructure since 2020. It wasn’t easy, however. The new release simplifies the process. Carbon Black Workload for Amazon Web Services runs on AWS and is designed to secure workloads on AWS hardware.

The solution recognizes suspicious changes and malicious workloads. In addition, Carbon Black Workload analyzes the system designated for a workload prior to its deployment. The solution verifies whether the system is clean and meets compliance conditions.

Carbon Black Workload for AWS automatically integrates with vSphere. Users can manage the solution from the vSphere interface. Although the solution runs on AWS, any (on-premises) system managed by VMware Cloud can be secured just as well.

“Security and IT teams lack visibility and control in highly dynamic and distributed environments”, said Jason Rolleston, vice president of product management and co-general manager for VMware’s Security Business Unit. “VMware Carbon Black Workload for AWS improves collaboration between these teams via a single consolidated platform for all workloads, regardless of where they’re running, to help defenders see and stop more threats.”
