Cortex XDR Pro should detect and control Backup Software and backup destinations.

L0 Member

Today, one of the most common techniques for a intruder today is to use a valid backup system to make a image of the system and in what way steal all the data of the server..

Werefore i want a new module in the Cortex XDR what will detect the backup software.

- The first installed backup software will just be notified upon.

- As a admin i should be whitelist the backup software we are using, and the destination of the backups.

- If a second backup software is installed on a computer it should be blocked by default so we can review it before allowing it. (except if it's in the whitelist)

- If a new destination is set up in current backup software, it should be blocked untill we allow the destination.


This should be implemented in the Cortex XDR so we can avoid exfiltration of the systems data to unknow destinations. i don't want my data to be stealed by "valid" backup softwares.
