    This article is just a disguised ad for Kaspersky EDR protection. EDR protection is applicable to commercial environments. An example of EDR protection is WD's ATP protection. All the major AV's have equivalent offerings.

    But doesn't it apply to Kaspersky AV for home users as well? Even Win Defender claims to be able to detect file-less malware, but it always scores bad in testing done by MRG Effitas. At least, when it comes to blocking file-less malware.
