TDR Host Sensor Details

This topic provides details on how each Host Sensor functions. Each Host Sensor collects forensic data from the host and sends it to the Threat Detection and Response cloud for analysis. Forensic data includes information related to files, processes, network connections, and registry keys on the host.

You can configure Host Sensors to simply report security threats or to take action to fix certain types of security threats using the Host Sensor settings.

On the Host Sensor settings page, users with an Administrator or Analyst role can configure the default Host Sensor settings for all Host Sensors in a TDR account.

One Host Sensor setting that is not on the Host Sensor Settings page is the Age Off For Quarantined Files setting. Analysts can configure this setting in the Host Sensors configuration page. For more information, see Configure the Age Off For Quarantined Files.

For deployment best practices, see TDR Deployment Best Practices.
