Bitdefender Endpoint Detection and Response

Extended threat detection, focused investigation, and effective response. 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)?

What is EDR generic image

Bitdefender EDR security monitors your network to uncover suspicious activity early and provides the tools you need to fight off cyber-attacks. It extends EDR analytics and event correlation capabilities beyond the boundaries of a single endpoint, to enable you to deal more effectively with complex cyber-attacks involving multiple endpoints.

This cross-endpoint correlation technology combines the granularity and rich security context of EDR with the infrastructure-wide analytics of XDR (eXtended Detection and Response). By providing threat visualizations at the organizational level, XEDR helps you focus investigations and respond more effectively.

Capabilities & Benefits

advanced risk analytics

Our advanced risk analytics technology examines not only endpoints but also human behavior, continuously analyzing your organizational risk using hundreds of factors to identify, prioritize and provide guidance on mitigating user, network, and endpoint risks.

industry-leading  threat detection technology

Bitdefender EDR 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 to a new level by applying XDR capabilities for detecting advanced attacks involving multiple endpoints in hybrid infrastructures (workstations, servers, or containers; running various OS).

visualization at the organization level

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.

streamlined 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. 

time-Saving Reporting and Alerting

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 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 XEDR the same as XDR?

XDR is the broader category while XEDR is the implementation of XDR capabilities at the endpoint level. An organization can enjoy full XDR capabilities from Bitdefender by combining XEDR with telemetry from non-endpoint sources, like the network. 

Is XEDR available on all EDR packages?

XEDR is available in all cloud-delivered EDR packages: Bitdefender EDR (our stand-alone EDR), GravityZone Ultra (our integrated prevent-detect-respond package), and Bitdefender MDR (our managed detection and response service). For on-premises deployments, standard EDR is available.

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.
