Cybereason XDRProduct Overview
Cybereason XDR product overview
Cybereason XDR is an end-to-end cybersecurity solution providing future-ready attack protection that unifies security from the endpoint to the enterprise. The Cybereason Defense Platform combines endpoint detection and response (EDR), extended detection and response (XDR), next-gen anti-virus (NGAV), and proactive threat hunting to deliver a context-rich analysis of a MalOp (malicious operation).
Cybereason XDR combines intelligence-based threat blocking and NGAV-based behavioral and machine learning techniques to stop known and unknown threats for prevention, detection, and response across the network, cloud infrastructure, and productivity suites. It moves beyond endless alerting to recognize, expose, and end malicious operations before they take hold. It utilizes multiple layers of machine learning to uncover zero-day malware and ransomware attacks. When layered together, these complementary algorithms enhance defense. Moreover, the platform makes sense of complex data relationships to surface sophisticated threats.
Pros of Cybereason XDR
- The software reduces investigation periods, allowing defenders to eliminate threats in a matter of minutes rather than days.
- It identifies malicious operations from root cause to every affected endpoint and user with real-time, multi-stage displays of the complete attack details. It empowers analysts to understand, pinpoint, and end attacks with a single click.
Cons of Cybereason XDR
- It offers an elaborate set of features that might be too complicated for smaller organizations.
Breakdown of core features
Cybereason XDR harnesses the power of Google Chronicle to transform petabyte-scale data into visual attack stories. It enables firms to prevent unknown ransomware and stop active attacks. Additionally, its MalOp™ feature correlates data across endpoints, applications, the cloud, and identities as an actionable attack story. IT administrators can anticipate attacker actions with automated threat intelligence analysis from Google Cloud and Cybereason applied to all data.
Endpoint detection and response (EDR)
With Cybereason EDR, defenders can stop chasing alerts and instead end malicious operations earlier. It identifies threats quickly using behavioral analysis that leverages cross-machine correlations and enriched data in real-time. Furthermore, the system’s cross-machine correlation engine reduces the workload for security teams.
The platform’s threat intelligence aggregates multiple threat feeds and cross-examines those feeds against machine learning analysis. It ranks various threat feeds based on their historical accuracy. This feature enables the software to determine the correct threat intelligence source to respond with precision, simplifying the investigation and response process.
Predictive ransomware protection
Artificially-intelligent endpoints, multi-layered protection, and visibility from the kernel to the cloud ensure that Cybereason stops any ransomware strain, even those never before seen. By decentralizing decision-making to the endpoint, the solution detects and blocks encryption at the first signs of attacker activity. The automated prevention capabilities of the software against advanced ransomware are comprehensive, providing an immediate boost to overburdened or inexperienced security teams. The system prevents ransomware before escalation and includes the ability to restore encrypted files to their previously unencrypted state as a final layer of defense against ransomware operations.
