Endpoint Detection and Response

Extended threat detection, focused investigation, and effective response. Bitdefender’s EDR security continuously monitors your network to uncover suspicious activity and provides the tools you need to defend against cyber-attacks.

What is Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)?

Wach "Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR): features and benefits" video

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an endpoint security solution that combines continuous, real-time monitoring and the collection of endpoint data and insights with detection capabilities and automated response actions.

GravityZone EDR Cloud detects advanced threats including fileless attacks, ransomware, and other zero-day threats in real-time. Its threat analytics and cloud-based event collector continuously monitor endpoints and prioritizes security events into a list of incidents for investigation and response.  

It includes cross-endpoint correlation technology which combines the granularity and rich security context of EDR security with threat visualizations at the organizational level to help you focus investigations and respond more effectively. By providing threat visualizations at the organization level, GravityZone EDR Cloud helps you focus investigations and respond more effectively.

EDR security - top  threat detection technology

GravityZone Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution detects advanced threats including fileless attacks, ransomware, and other zero-day threats in real-time.  Its threat analytics and cloud-based event collector continuously monitor endpoints and prioritizes security events into a list of incidents for investigation and response. 

extended endpoint detection and response

Cross-endpoint correlation technology takes threat detection and visibility of our endpoint detection and response (EDR) security solution to a new level by enabling detection of advanced attacks involving multiple endpoints in hybrid infrastructures (workstations, servers or containers; running various OS).

data security vizualization

Comprehensive visuals of adversary actions, enriched with context and threat intelligence, highlight critical attack paths, easing burdens on IT staff. Helps identify gaps in protection and incident impact to support compliance.

incident investigation and response

Bitdefender EDR provides innovative and easy-to-understand visualizations with rich context and threat intelligence that help IT staff understand attack paths and identify gaps in protection. These visualizations streamline the investigation and response, easing the burden on IT staff. The sandbox analyzer enables staff to automatically execute suspicious payloads in a contained, virtual environment to isolate and neutralize suspicious files. 

incident management

Configurable dashboards, email notifications, and comprehensive reporting capabilities for both instant and scheduled reports, all managed from a centralized console save time and effort for IT teams. 

How does Bitdefender EDR work?

Bitdefender Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is a cloud-based solution built upon the Bitdefender GravityZone XDR platform. Each EDR agent deployed on your organization’s endpoints has an event recorder that continuously monitors the endpoint and securely sends insights and suspicious event details to the centralized GravityZone Control Center.  


In the Control Center, the Bitdefender cross-endpoint correlation engine collects and distills endpoint events and generates prioritized, organizational-level views of security incidents, enabling administrators to quickly investigate and respond effectively to threats.

Is cross-endpoint detection and response available on all EDR packages?

Cross-endpoint detection and response is available in all EDR packages: Bitdefender EDR, GravityZone Business Security Enterprise and Bitdefender MDR.

How can an organization benefit from EDR if it does not have dedicated security personnel?

To fully benefit from EDR, an organization with no dedicated security personnel (such as security analysts) should opt for our Bitdefender MDR service. This fully-managed service includes our EDR solution as well as 24/7 security operations delivered from the Bitdefender Security Operations Center by highly skilled threat hunters and security experts.
