This section describes how to install Carbon Black EDR Windows sensors on endpoints.

Note: To install sensors on Windows systems, you must belong to the Local Administrators group or higher.

There are two ways to install Windows sensors:

  • Windows Standalone EXE – Installs a sensor onto a single host. This option is useful for bringing a new host online in your network.

  • Windows MSI for GPO Installation – Deploys sensors to multiple hosts over the network using a Microsoft Group Policy Object (GPO). This option is also appropriate for remotely deploying sensors with third-party software deployment applications by using standard Msiexec commands.
