At the turn of 2010, as Operation Aurora was making headlines for breaching well-known companies like Google and Lockheed Martin, our founding members were battling the same Aurora actors for other affected companies. With each new engagement, our knowledge about the Aurora actors grew, but the time it took to find, isolate, and remediate the intrusion remained constant and largely based on speculation (as most incident response engagements are). This frustrated us. We realized, more than ever, that “it’s not a matter of if, but when,” a breach will occur.
“We can’t be spending all this time and money without any real proof every time someone clicks on a bad link,” we decided. And thus, the idea for Carbon Black was born.
Starting in February of 2010, we incubated and honed what we knew could become the definitive incident preparation product on the market. By the end of 2011, we acquired our first paying customers. By the end of the following year, our customer base had grown substantially and we received an investment from Blackstone to build an enterprise-grade version of the product for large enterprises.
Carbon Black was created, and is here now, to help companies approach this new reality of the inevitability of compromise with confidence.
Improving information security through education and collaboration is our passion. This shines through in everything we do. We are here to empower security professionals and businesses with critical data that provides unmatched visibility and traceability across their enterprises so they can gain awareness about their digital enterprise and share that info with others. In doing so, we will dramatically lower the costs of incident response and better secure the internet.
