EDR with Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra

Endpoint Detection and Response: Key instrument for Security Incident Response

 Datasheet on GravityZone Ultra

Personal data records belonging to more than 4 billion people were affected by the top 10 data breaches alone in the last decade. Businesses are losing market capitalization, reputation and customers, besides costly legal consequences once these data breaches surface. And, statistics indicate cybercrime is here to stay and thrive. As business dependency on IT grows, so does cyber criminals’ interest in taking advantage of this trend. So, what can be done? How can enterprises around the globe effectively fight cybercrime and prevent costly data breaches?

Besides people and processes, tools are a necessary and important part of the incident management plan. Most organizations currently rely on endpoint protection platforms (EPP) that aim to prevent malware or the execution of an attack on the endpoint infrastructure. As a complement for endpoint protection platforms, Endpoint Detection and Response (or short EDR) is built to neutralize an attack after exploitation. Bitdefender’s GravityZone Ultra product was designed from the ground up as an integrated next-gen EPP and easy-to-use EDR, offering prevention, automated detection, investigation and response tools built into a single agent and management from a single console.

EDR solutions are notoriously noisy and hungry for analyst’s time and attention. GravityZone Ultra was built to reduce the resources and skill requirements for effective incident response. Ultra leverages industry leading prevention and security automation to sharply reduce the number of incidents requiring manual investigation and provides visualization and context information for easier and faster incident resolution.
