ParaFlare and Carbon Black were cut from the same cloth. Both Carbon Black and ParaFlare were founded by former members of the Australian and U.S. government’s elite team of offensive security hackers. Carbon Black and ParaFlare were trained by the NSA and ASD respectively. Our founders possessed early insights into the tools and techniques of 21st century cyber hackers; namely, how to get around the defences your business deploy every day. For more than 15 years, ParaFlare’s leadership and Carbon Black’s software have used that experience to outpace increasingly sophisticated attacks.
Carbon Black are bringing you a new generation of endpoint security, purposely designed to protect your organisation from the most advanced cyberattacks. Their pioneering approach to application control, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and next-gen antivirus (NGAV) has been proven by thousands of customers as well as leading independent third parties.
Attackers have moved beyond malware, accounting for 53% of today’s breaches, of which machine-learning is useless against. Carbon Black’s streaming prevention goes beyond machine-learning AV to stop all types of attacks before they compromise your system.
Carbon Black is the industry leader in providing the most comprehensive endpoint threat protection, threat detection
and response solution. It is the industry’s only solution that provides integrated coverage for every aspect
of endpoint threat protection: continuous monitoring and recording for real-time visibility into every endpoint,

infrastructure to discover devices as they connect to the network. Our customers have reported seeing up to 60%
