Does Pathfinder require an agent to be installed on the endpoint?

L4 Transporter

No, Pathfinder uses an agentless endpoint analysis service, running its own code on suspicious endpoints to collect information about running processes on the endpoint and determine if the processes are malware or greyware.

Which services are required when Pathfinder examines devices on the endpoint?

L3 Networker

Pathfinder™ requires an optional component integrated with the Broker VM that deploys a non-persistent data collector on network hosts, servers, and workstations that are not managed by a Cortex XDR agent. The collector is automatically triggered by  Analytics type alerts with a severity of High and Medium as described in the Cortex XDR Analytics Alert Reference, providing insights into assets that you would previously be unable to scan. Information is available here.
