New in 2022.4: Endpoint Detection and Response Beta with deep threat insights

  • April 4, 2022
  • 3 min read

This release represents a major step forward for our Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution, which now provides deep threat insights that enable you trace the origin of a malware attack. You can browse through the entire process tree that led to the execution of the malware, and easily see all file and registry modifications.

Extended MITRE ATT&CK malware behavior patterns

The new extended process activity analysis feature also provides support for a wide range of MITRE ATT&CK patterns that detect and highlight potential threats, providing you with complete control over the response. With a single click, you can either block and quarantine a threat across all devices in your workspace, or whitelist a specific file to avoid future alerts.

EDR availability

The new advanced EDR functionality is available to all users of Emsisoft business and enterprise solutions. While Emsisoft Business Security includes activity logs relating only to impacted process chains only, Emsisoft Enterprise Security users will benefit from full insights into to all processes.

If you’d like to be one of the first to test out the new threat hunting capabilities, you can enable the new EDR functionality in your protection group policies or in individual device settings in Emsisoft Management Console. Go to MyEmsisoft

Please note that Emsisoft EDR is currently in beta and under active development, which means certain functionality may not yet be available and some stability issues may be encountered. Because of this, we recommend that the beta not be used in production environments and only by users who are comfortable restoring their systems from backups. Our developers keep improving the product and you will notice ongoing improvements.

Cost

We’re pleased to announce that Emsisoft EDR will not be an expensive add-on, but will instead be included with all Business Security and Enterprise Security licenses as standard.
