Jim Raine
Director Technology Alliances, Carbon Black

Interview Overview: Beyond Malware: Securing Data Today Means Securing Endpoints
Jim Raine, director of technology alliances at Carbon Black Inc., stopped by theCUBE and talked with Lisa Martin (@Luccazara) and Peter Burris (@plburris) about what endpoint security is. When Carbon Black sees an unknown new binary on an endpoint, they submit it to FortiSandbox and ask, “Is it good or is it bad?” If FortiSandbox comes back with confirmation that the new binary is malicious, Carbon Black can stop it from executing again, as well as terminating in motion. Attackers today are going after whatever, wherever they can find the most valuable data to them,” explained Raine. He said Carbon Black has seen recent attacks in financial organizations, in “mom and pop shops,” in healthcare, as well as in retail and manufacturing. Customers need to take a proper assessment and understand where their assets reside and then deploy multiple different layers, including an endpoint solution, to stop the attacks.

Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and CEO of Fortinet Inc., stopped by theCUBE and talked with Lisa Martin (@Luccazara) and Peter Burris (@plburris) about how the company’s network security fabric acts like a giant “security blanket” over their entire infrastructure. “This is all about changing from securing just some systems or some connections now to securing the whole infrastructure,” Xie said.
