Global cybersecurity company Bitdefender has launched a new cloud-based dedicated Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution. It is designed to help enterprise customers and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) improve the ability to detect and eradicate threats as they occur and strengthen overall resiliency against cyberattacks.

“The new Bitdefender EDR package delivers best-in-class attack visibility and effective response, backed by threat intelligence from Bitdefender Labs,” said Gavin Hill, vice president product marketing at Bitdefender.

The new Endpoint Detection and Response package is resource-light and fully cloud-delivered for “easy” deployment and management. It runs alongside third-party prevention technologies. Unique in the EDR space, it combines endpoint telemetry and human risk analytics with advanced threat detection capabilities. The detection capabilities would enable quick visibility into vulnerable systems on-premise or in-cloud environments. They offer one-click actions to mitigate risks including quarantining files, blocking IP addresses and killing processes.

“Businesses and MSPs struggle to keep pace with an onslaught of attacks as cybercriminals work diligently to capitalize on the industry’s shift to less secure remote work environments for the foreseeable future,” said Gavin Hill, vice president product marketing at Bitdefender. “The new Bitdefender EDR package delivers best-in-class attack visibility and effective response, backed by threat intelligence from Bitdefender Labs, to help organizations navigate these riskier, uncertain times and protect their most valuable assets.”

Along with the new launch of Bitdefender EDR, Bitdefender has strengthened the GravityZone platform that underpins its business solutions portfolio.

Key features would include:

  • New GravityZone executive dashboard that displays key information in an “easy-to-use”, consolidated graphical representation covering threat detections and automatic actions taken, as well as the current endpoint inventory.
  • Enhanced integration with SIEMs by enabling the forwarding of raw and/or system events from protected endpoints. The new feature, available for both cloud and on-premises deployments, lets customers search through raw endpoint data with the help of a SIEM. This complements the search capability embedded in the EDR product.
  • Ransomware mitigation is now also available for MSPs and customers using the GravityZone cloud-based console. It provides the ability to restore encrypted files from tamper-proof copies, following a ransomware attack.

Bitdefender EDR and its enhanced GravityZone platform are available now. Bitdefender EDR is offered as a stand-alone product or through the cloud.
