Qualys, a leading provider of disruptive cloud-based IT, security and compliance solutions, announced Multi-Vector EDR 2.0 with additional threat-hunting and risk mitigation capabilities improving alert prioritization and reducing the time needed to respond to threats.


Traditional EDR solutions still focus solely on endpoint activity to detect attacks and incorporate only MITRE ATT&CK techniques not tactics. Due to which, practitioners are forced to rely on additional tools to improve their cyber risk posture leading to slow and incomplete threat remediation actions. EDR needs to evolve to scale and provide meaningful threat context, in near real time, to meet the challenges of the modern threat landscape.

Qualys leverages its Cloud Platform to analyze context and data points via its integration with vulnerability and patch management along with device controls to reduce the volume of incoming incidents. This volume reduction is a key factor in saving time and resources, as it allows teams to focus on the riskiest threats that matter the most, ensuring their attack surface is less exposed.

Refreshed Qualys Multi-Vector EDR operationalizes MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques allowing security practitioners to quickly analyze and respond to threats. Qualys Cloud Platform’s extended prediction and prevention capabilities provide orchestrated access to multiple context vectors including asset criticality, vulnerabilities, system misconfigurations, and recommended patches via a single agent and unified dashboard.

Its comprehensive approach prevents future attacks by identifying and eliminating vulnerabilities exploited by malware. Through native integration with Qualys VMDR, practitioners can pivot from a single malware incident, such as Conti, to identifying all assets susceptible to CVEs associated with the malware and then patch via Qualys Patch Management.


Qualys Multi-Vector EDR provides:

  • Comprehensive Threat Response 
  • Holistic Multi-Vector Security 
  • Easy to Deploy, Use and Manage 

In an evaluation conducted among EDR products, Multi-Vector EDR detected the simulated adversary throughout the attack chain. Overall, the solution detected 100% of the tested steps and returned 74% visibility into the entire attack chain. The results attest to how Multi-Vector EDR leverages the Qualys Cloud Platform to sift through the noise to surface the data that matters most to the security team while also providing detections throughout the attack.
