Carbon Black Smart Connector

Not sure what happened over the years but if feels like the ArcSight smart connector support is severly lagging. I am not sure why flex connectors are used so much, back in the original days <) would tell you DO NOT make flex connectors unless they had no roadmap to smart connector support for that product. It was my understanding that they do not properly do categorization & priortization etc....; and that properly parseing the alerts into correlation normalized events would not work in the long run.

My problem is that technologies like Carbon Black Response, Defense, and now Proection do not have smart connectors at all. In fact the documentation here still has Bit9 listed which is not even a product anymore (2016) (Cb Protection).

Am I missing something is the new model to just do flex connectors for new / updated technology?
