Announcing the Containerized Sensor for Carbon Black Cloud Container Security

Posted on January 22, 2024


The Containerized Sensor bundles Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and Container Scanning security in one easy to deploy package. The container is deployed onto your host and from there provides EDR security of the host’s behavior. The Containerized Sensor also detects other containers running on the host and in addition to the EDR process information captured when a sensor is running on an Endpoint, it collects the container context such as container name and id. The Container Image Scanning features, also packaged in the Containerized Sensor then scans them for vulnerabilities, malware and secrets. All this is reported back to Carbon Black Cloud for further analysis.

Use Cases

  • Detect and enforce EDR capabilities with containers context.
  • Detect vulnerabilities, malware and secrets on deployed containers.


  • Carbon Black Cloud Container
  • API key with appropriate permissions. See Authentication for details.
