The Carbon Black App Control agent recognizes the Carbon Black EDR sensor and reports its presence to the Carbon Black App Control server.
The Carbon Black App Control server allows efficient operation of both the Carbon Black App Control agent and Carbon Black EDR sensor on the same endpoint.
Performance Optimizations – Internal performance optimizations nearly eliminate any performance impact on either product from having the other product’s agent or sensor installed.
Trust for Sensor Updates – Updater rules allows seamless installation and upgrades of Carbon Black EDR macOS and Linux sensors that would otherwise have been blocked by a Carbon Black App Control agent in Medium and High enforcement modes. See Carbon Black App Control Online Help for more information about updater rules.
Publisher Trust for Carbon Black EDR – A Publisher rule in Carbon Black App Control instructs agents to trust (by default) Windows files that are identified as being from the publisher “Carbon Black, Inc.” This is the publisher for Carbon Black EDR files. See the Carbon Black App Control Online Help.
Server Integration Interface – The Licensing tab on the Carbon Black App Control System Configuration page includes a Carbon Black EDR section that you can use to activate integration with a specific Carbon Black EDR server. Step-by-step instructions are included in Activating Integration.
