This guide provides installation and configuration instructions for Carbon Black Cloud Sensors.

You can install a Carbon Black Cloud sensor on Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints and on endpoints in VDI environments. The sensor provides data from the endpoints to Carbon Black Cloud analytics. You can also secure VMware workloads by using the Carbon Black Cloud.

Note: For instructions on securing Kubernetes containers, see Setting up the Container Security Environment.

Intended Audience

This documentation provides sensor installation, update, and uninstall instructions for administrators, incident responders, and others who will operate the Carbon Black Cloud.

Staff who manage Carbon Black Cloud 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.
