VIPRE Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) is a comprehensive endpoint security solution that includes the best of a next-generation antivirus (NGAV)/endpoint protection platform(EPP), plus advanced investigation and response capabilities. Malicious code, network exploits, and many other threats will be immediately blocked, while more evasive and persistent attacks will be escalated to incidents for further analysis and remediation. The solution provides a wide range of investigation and hardening tools to allow security teams to respond rapidly and take action.

Meet VIPRE EDR

The following video introduces VIPRE Endpoint Detection & Response and demonstrates how it works.  

What is VIPRE EDR capable of?

Capabilities include:

  • All the next-generation anti-malware, anti-virus, and anti-threat capabilities included in VIPRE Endpoint Security Cloud and Server, including AI-driven malware detection, network intrusion detection, DNS protection, web exploit detection, and anti-spam engines
  • Additional advanced threat detection and correlation engines that combine raw events, security events, and contextual data to identify zero-day, living-off-the-land, and grey zone threats not detectable by classic next-gen AV
  • The VIPRE Endpoint Web Access Control add-on, which provides policy-based access control to selected website categories to address compliance and duty-of-care concerns
  • A clean and seamless incident investigation capability that surfaces relevant information and actionable data to first responders
  • Application scanning to determine the risk profile of the endpoint and any potential vulnerabilities
  • A remote shell that provides instant access to allow investigators to perform detailed forensic analysis on the endpoint; no installer required
  • Supplemental in-situ investigation with sandbox-based forensic threat analysis granting detailed insights into potential malware behavior.
  • The ability to quickly and easily isolate threats that may reside on endpoints by preventing all network access to/from the endpoint
  • Rapid response through built-in tools, including Vulnerability & Patch Management, remote process control, and remote file management

All of these capabilities are provided within a responsive console that can be used from anywhere, even while on the go, and supports the seamless exploration of all data through a deeply linked UI.
