Welcome Carbon Black as First Time Boulder Startup Week Sponsor!

Boulder Startup Week is thrilled to welcome ‘new kid on the block’ Carbon Black as a sponsor of Boulder Startup Week 2018.

Carbon Black is a leading provider of next-generation endpoint security. Carbon Black’s Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) solution, Cb Defense, leverages breakthrough prevention technology, “Streaming Prevention,” to instantly see and stop cyberattacks before they execute. Cb Defense uniquely combines breakthrough prevention with market-leading detection and response into a single, lightweight agent delivered through the cloud. With more than 13 million endpoints under management, Carbon Black has more than 3,700 customers, including 30 of the Fortune 100. These customers use Carbon Black to replace legacy antivirus, lock down critical systems, hunt threats, and protect their endpoints from the most advanced cyberattacks, including non-malware attacks.

Carbon Black was founded by two former offensive hackers who were trained by (and worked for) elite teams at the NSA and CIA. After working on behalf of the U.S. government and moving into the private sector, they saw how ill-prepared global organizations were to prevent, detect, and respond to cyberattacks. As a result, Carbon Black’s founders leveraged their experiences at the NSA and CIA to create cybersecurity software, Carbon Black (now Cb Response), which was billed as “the world’s first surveillance camera for computers.” Carbon Black promised to do within minutes what originally took days or weeks.

Carbon Black now has more than 1,000 employees, 3,700 global customers, and protects more than 13 million endpoints. As part of its vision to create a world safe from cyberattacks, Carbon Black recently unveiled the Cb Predictive Security Cloud (PSC), a cybersecurity solution that leverages big-data analytics to predict future attack trends and stay ahead of advanced, emerging attacks.

“Carbon Black recently opened an office in Boulder, CO in the Pearl Street Mall. With our employee-base growing in this community, as well as the tech talent generally relocating to the area, the decision to invest here was a no-brainer. We’re excited to be a sponsor for Boulder Startup Week as it gives us an opportunity to get acquainted with the community and let them know about who we are and what we’re hiring for. There’s a lot of amazing talent in Boulder and we’re looking forward to bringing more people onboard.” – Marisa Ianelli, Director of Global Talent Acquisition and Talent Brand
