Integrating with VMware Carbon Black Endpoint Protection


Carbon Black Protection (CBP) has a number of methods for log and event collection.  At this point, Blumira recommends the syslog method of collection, but may include API collection in the future for additional coverage into the environments.

Prior to starting this configuration, ensure that you have the IP to the Blumira Sensor you intend to send the data to and that the Blumira Sensor has the latest version of the Logger module.  Additionally, the CBP server must be able to send SYSLOG 514 TCP/UDP to your Blumira Sensor.
