The Anomaly Classification feature detects and automatically identifies alerts that are most likely to be relevant. This feature is available for VMware Carbon Black XDR customers and on certain watchlists.

The system determines the prevalence of the alert by looking at how many times the alert has been seen across all organizations and within your own organization. Prevalence categories include: very common, average, or rare. An alert is more likely to be marked as anomalous if its prevalence is overall rare.

You can use this feature to focus on the alerts that are anomalous and quickly respond to potential issues or threats.

On the Alerts page, you can use the Anomaly Classification filter to filter alerts into three categories:
