XDR Shadow Copy use case

L0 Member

Could someone please share any related documents or use cases for the Shadow Copy in XDR? We have gone through the Administrative guide, but we were unable to find many details about how it works. Additionally, we would like to know how we can backup the data if an endpoint gets infected.

Hi YadnyayeePawar,


The use case is to allow our customers the ability to turn on automatic backups from XDR to ease the stress associated with managing backup tools when dealing with ransomware cases and to improve your security posture. 


Please review LIVEcommunity - Cortex XDR How-To Video: What's New in 3.8 which provides an overview of the feature.

We have already gone through these documents, and we would appreciate it if anyone would provide us with proper documentation on how shadow copy works and if there are any use cases available.
