Endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions are more important than ever, as endpoints remain the most exposed and exploited part of any network, with the average organization managing thousands. The rise of malicious and automated cyber activity targeting endpoints leaves organizations that rely on traditional endpoint security approaches struggling against attackers who exploit zero-day vulnerabilities with ease and launch a barrage of ransomware attacks. The volume of alerts is leading to fatigued analysts struggling with complex tooling, alert overload and time-consuming investigations.

IBM Security® QRadar® EDR, formerly ReaQta, remediates known and unknown endpoint threats in near real time with easy-to-use intelligent automation that requires little-to-no human interaction. You can make quick and informed decisions with attack visualization storyboards and use automated alert management to focus on threats that matter. Advanced continuous learning AI capabilities and a user-friendly interface put security staff back in control and help safeguard business continuity.

Benefits Get a clear line of sight

Regain full control over all endpoint and threat activity with heightened visibility across your environment. Designed to be undetectable by adversaries, NanoOS technology provides deep visibility into the processes and applications running on endpoints.

Automate your response

Our continuously-learning AI detects and responds autonomously in near real time to previously unseen threats and helps even the most inexperienced analyst with guided remediation and automated alert handling.

Move from reactive to proactive

Get ahead of attackers with easy-to-create detection and response use cases that return results in seconds, leaving dormant threats with no room to hide. Easy-to-build use cases are deployed across the organization without interrupting endpoint uptime.

Product features
Behavioral tree A behavioral tree provides full alert and attack visibility. A user-friendly visual storyline helps analysts speed up their investigation and response. From here, analysts can also access containment controls and three stages of incidence response: triaging, response and protection policies.
Cyber Assistant alerts The Cyber Assistant, an AI-powered alert management system, can autonomously handle alerts, reducing analysts’ workloads.
Cyber Assistant recommendations The Cyber Assistant learns from analyst decisions, then retains the intellectual capital and learned behaviors to make recommendations and help reduce false positives.
Custom detection strategies  Detection Strategy (DeStra) scripting allows users to build custom detection strategies—beyond preconfigured models—to address compliance or company-specific requirements without the need to reboot the endpoint.
Ransomware Ransomware attacks are on the rise and will only continue to grow in frequency and complexity. Antivirus methods are no longer enough. QRadar EDR can help organizations detect and stop ransomware, in near real-time.
