Fidelis Cybersecurity strengthens its ransomware capabilities

Fidelis Cybersecurity announced Fidelis Endpoint, a favored solution of forensics and incident response professionals worldwide, successfully detected Data Encrypted For Impact (T1486), which is indicative of Ransomware attacks, during the 2021 MITRE Engenuity Round 4 ATT&CK Evaluation.

“MITRE ATT&CK Evaluations provide insight into the ability of EDR solutions to detect attack tactics and techniques, allowing enterprises to understand their risk and ability to detect advanced attacks,” said Jerry Mancini, COO and VP Products, Fidelis Cybersecurity. “Fidelis Endpoint results demonstrate the strong detection, forensics, and investigation using the version 9.4 solution used during the evaluation. The substantial product improvements in version 9.5, which include the integration of Intel TDT, further strengthens our ability to automatically respond and remediate threats and improves our ransomware abilities.”

Fidelis Endpoint is a powerful, proactive endpoint detection and response (EDR) platform that provides deep visibility into endpoint activity both on and off premises and within cloud environments to speed investigations. Hands-on control and automation help security teams quickly pinpoint and eradicate threats to an organization.

Fidelis Endpoint v9.4 was used for the MITRE Round 4 testing. The new v9.5 release expands the ability to both detect and respond to ransomware attacks.

With Fidelis Endpoint v.9.5, Fidelis Cybersecurity is adding:

  • Intel Threat Detection Technology (Intel TDT) accelerated memory scanning (AMS) Integration
    • to help detect ever evolving and intensifying cyberthreats that hide in memory
    • to offload memory scanning to the Intel integrated GPU to minimize impacts on CPU performance
  • Agent Platform Coverage
    • Support for Windows 11 and macOS 12, and support for Apple M1 architecture
  • Service Monitoring and Supportability
    • Enhanced system monitoring to provide real-time, detailed system health status.

“By integrating Intel Threat Detection Technology accelerated memory scanning (AMS) into Fidelis Endpoint, enterprise customers with Intel vPro Platforms can perform more frequent memory scanning with higher performance – a great benefit for our mutual customers to continue to help stay ahead of bad actors,” said Carla Rodríguez, Sr. Director, Ecosystem Partner Enablement, Intel Corporation.
