Maidenhead, UK – 15th February 2017—Carbon Black, the leader in next-generation endpoint security, today announced a strategic distribution relationship with Arrow Electronics, the leading value-added distributor in providing cybersecurity solutions to the broader security-partner ecosystem.

Arrow’s network of global value-added resellers will sell all of Carbon Black’s solutions including Cb Defense, Carbon Black’s Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV).

“With the proliferation of enterprise devices and the internet of things, it’s no secret the market is looking for robust endpoint security solutions,” said Shannon McWilliams, who directs the dedicated security practice within Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business. “We are excited to collaborate with Carbon Black on bringing Next-Gen Antivirus to Arrow’s marketplace of security resellers and helping our reseller ecosystem solve increasingly sophisticated enterprise threats."

Cb Defense is a leading NGAV solution that protects businesses from the full spectrum of modern cyberattacks, delivering the best endpoint protection with the least amount of work. Using a combination of endpoint and cloud-based technologies, Cb Defense stops more attacks than legacy AV and machine-learning AV. Its deep analytic approach inspects files and identifies malicious behaviour to block both malware and increasingly common non-malware attacks that exploit memory and scripting languages.

Said Ken Hammond, Carbon Black’s vice president of worldwide channel: “The market wants prevention and is rapidly shifting away from traditional AV. There is currently a huge demand from customers for a leading NGAV solution. By combining Cb Defense with Arrow’s vast network, Carbon Black is greatly increasing its global footprint, providing high margins for resellers, and continuing to stay at the cutting edge of keeping businesses protected from cyber attacks.”
