The VMware Carbon Black Cloud Sensor Installation Guide provides installation and configuration instructions for the VMware 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 and Kubernetes cluster workloads by using the Carbon Black Cloud.

Intended Audience

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