Product updates

This section lists the changes implemented for Endpoint Detection and Response in F-Secure Elements Security Center portal.

May 2021
New features and improvements

  • Rapid Detection and Response is now F-Secure Elements Endpoint Detection and Response. It is available under F-Secure Elements Security Center (elements.f-secure.com).
  • Event search for threat hunting: A new capability to view and search events send by F-Secure Elements Agent (Endpoint client).
  • Scheduled reports have been updated to include an improved structure and a more visual presentation for Broad Context Detections and other EDR information.
  • F-Secure Elements Security Center language support now includes English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Latin America), and Swedish.

It can now be found under the user Account settings in the page header (compared to earlier settings page. The language selection is common for the products in Elements Security Center and applies to the Dashboard, EDR, and Protection for Microsoft 365 views.
  • Automatic recognition of the device profile types
    • “Virtualisation guest”, “Virtualisation host”, “LDAP server”, “File server”, “DNS server”, “Microsoft Exchange Server”, and “Mail server”.
  • The Software view offers more details by showing software component description and internal name metadata from executable files. This helps to differentiate between different software components that are parts of the same software.
April 2021
New features and improvements

  • Device list view Broad Context Detection risk level filter introduced to list devices having open e.g. SEVERE risk incidents. Device list performance improved.
  • Improved portal response time when going through list of Broad Context Detections using next and previous buttons.
  • Portal login time improved.
  • Process activities having info severity detections in Broad Context Detection summary and process tree views are now indicated using light blue color.
February 2021
New features and improvements

  • New incident detection based on endpoint client memory scanning. Using memory scanning events we can identify threats/signs of attack that were done in endpoint and still active in memory when EDR client is activated. Detections
January 2021
New features and improvements

    • Incident analysis

The Incident analysis feature in the portal allows administrators to add their own analysis for Broad Context Detections, for example, descriptions of root causes or implemented remediations. The analysis is included in the scheduled reports, which allows for a more efficient flow and better visibility in handling detections.

December 2020
New features and improvements

  • The menu items and terminology between the Protection Service for Business management portal and Rapid Detection and Response management portal are now aligned. RDR has adopted the use of the following terms: ‘Device’ (previously ‘host’) and ‘software’ (previously ‘app’/’application’).
November 2020
New features and improvements

  • New indicators for process-injection activity highlight injected processes in the Summary view and process tree. This new functionality helps in identifying process-injection activities by linking between the injecting process and the process being injected.
October 2020
New features and improvements

  • The new functionality of reviewing PowerShell script blocks gives visibility to executed scripts that are considered malicious or suspicious.
  • In the Broad Context Detection summary view and process tree details, the color-coding for information-level activity has been changed from blue to gray. Information-level detections are generated to add visibility to activities originating from a process that includes severe detections (critical, high, medium).
September 2020
New features and improvements

  • Added support for Linux. The RDR capabilities are now available also for the Linux operating system together with Linux Protection for Servers (Server Protection Premium and RDR). See the Linux client release notes: New Linux Security 64 Update has been Released (2020-09-29).
  • Decoding of the automatic PowerShell script block.
  • The Broad Context Detection details view includes detection, process, and host overview with the capability of searching for processes and detections. This simplifies the incident analysis process by providing an incident overview with quick links to the related details.
  • Integration with Radar, the F-Secure Vulnerability Management tool. Users who have both solutions can now move between them without additional logins.
  • The Broad Context Detection (BCD) similarity model is a new machine learning-based feature that improves the visibility into the incident landscape. When incidents are being analyzed, identical or similar BCD incidents are clearly indicated compared to the incident under investigation. You can use the information in incident analysis by comparing the incidents and their similarity with the help of the similarity score (as a %).

Fixed issues

  • The Broad Context Detection details view now scales to large screens.
August 2020
New features and improvements

  • Support for virtualized environments. When installing the F-Secure endpoint client into virtual environments (see instructions: Installing Server Protection in persistent mode on Citrix servers)
  • Broad Context Detection highlights the new content
    • Processes running with elevated privileges
    • Process injection details
    • Thread creation details
    • Process manipulation through Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) interfaces
    • Local environment process IDs (PID)
July 2020
New features and improvements

  • New response action to remotely collect information that helps manual incident analysis and forensics. This feature automates information gathering from the device that has suspicious activity. Once the collection is triggered, a zipped file will become available in the portal for downloading the package for further analysis. The download link is available in the portal for 14 days.
  • The Broad Context Detection log view includes detection information and links to details in the process tree. This improvement gives more detailed view and easier analysis of the Broad Context Detection life cycle.
June 2020
