If EMET is installed on a host that is running a Carbon Black EDR sensor, information about that host’s EMET configuration is provided to the Carbon Black EDR server.

This information is displayed in the Computer Vitals panel on the Sensor Details page for each sensor. See “Managing Sensors” in the VMware Carbon Black EDR User Guide .


Hosts without EMET installed do not include the fields for EMET status on their Sensor Details page. If EMET data is not available, that field will be blank.

The following table shows the EMET-related fields that are included on the Computer Vitals panel.

Table 1. EMET Information on the Sensor Details page



EMET Version

  • Audit -- Do not kill the process, when applicable, but log the exploitation attempt.

  • Block -- Terminate the program when an exploitation attempt is detected (“Stop” in the EMET interface)

EMET Telemetry Path

If Local Telemetry mode is enabled on EMET, this field shows the path where Early Warning information is sent on the local machine. See the Microsoft EMET documentation for the Registry path for this setting.

EMET Report Settings

In addition, for any active option, there will also be an indication of whether the choice is Locally or GPO configured.


If Windows Event Log is not active, Carbon Black EDR will not received EMET events.
