This is your guide to day-to-day administration and security monitoring tasks: monitoring executable files on your network using App Control; configuring the App Control Server; managing computers running the App Control Agent; and managing App Control Console users.

This content is delivered in two ways:

  • Embedded within the Carbon Black App Control software and available on the console.

    All context-sensitive help links are directed to the embedded help system.

  • Available online, in HTML and PDF format, on VMware Docs.

Intended Audience

This documentation provides user instructions for administrators, incident responders, and others who will operate Carbon Black App Control.

Staff who manage Carbon Black App Control activities should be familiar with operating systems, web applications, installed software, desktop infrastructure (especially in-house procedures for software roll-outs, patch management, and anti-virus software maintenance), and the effects of unwanted software.

In addition, if you intend to use features that integrate App Control and Active Directory, you should be familiar with Active Directory concepts and use. Although not necessary for day-to-day users, knowledge of SQL Server management is required for the administrator of the App Control database server at your site.

App Control administrators should also be familiar with the operating systems of clients managed by the App Control server, as well as the software installed on them.
