Check for additions and updates to these release notes.

What's New - 21 June 2022

This is the first release of VMware Carbon Black Cloud on the VMware Cloud Services Platform.

  • VMware is expanding our global Points of Presence (PoP) for the Carbon Black Cloud with this new instance hosted in the United Kingdom. 
  • The UK PoP provides peace of mind for UK customers who require (or prefer) their telemetry data to be hosted within the United Kingdom. 
  • The new Point of Presence in the United Kingdom is built on VMware’s Cloud Services Platform (CSP). This allows customers to access the Carbon Black Cloud from VMware’s unified Cloud Services Console, enhancing the identity and access management capabilities of the Carbon Black Cloud, and standardizing the Carbon Black Cloud with other solutions used by VMware customers and partners. Expanded identity capabilities include: 
    • Configuring SAML 2.0 identity federation with an expanded set of providers, including Microsoft Azure Active Directory and Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) 
    • Group-based RBAC for user management and role assignment 
    • Configuring API Access to the Carbon Black Cloud via oAuth 2.0 Apps 
  • Workloads: Configuration of an Appliance uses a different workflow to take advantage of CSP Identity Management

    See details in the user guide: Setting Up Your CWP Appliance

  • Container Essentials: Container Essentials is not yet available in the UK PoP

  • The following features are not yet available in the UK PoP:

    • Managed Detection
    • CSP Multi-tenancy (partner & multi tenant enablement)
