Elements Endpoint Detection and Response
A collection of short easy steps to get started in taking the product into use
Getting started with WithSecure™ Elements Endpoint Detection and Response.
Follow the steps below to get started with using WithSecure™ Elements Endpoint Detection and Response.
Step 1 - Creating an WithSecure Business account
You will need a WithSecure™ Business Account to access WithSecure™ Elements Security Center, which is the unified management platform for managing all WithSecure™ Elements products.
When you purchase the product from a WithSecure™ partner, the partner typically creates a Business Account for the first administrator in your organization. If this applies to you, you have received an email from WithSecure™ with a temporary password and a link to log in to Elements Security Center.
If your account has not yet been created, but you have received a subscription key from your partner, you can use the subscription key to create a WithSecure™ Business account for the first administrator in your organization. To do that, use the company self-registration link for your specific region:
- For Europe, Middle-East & Africa: https://emea.psb.f-secure.com/#/create-company-account
- For America: https://amer.psb.f-secure.com/#/create-company-account
- For Asia Pacific: https://apac.psb.f-secure.com/#/create-company-account
After completing the company self-registration, you receive an email from WithSecure™ with a temporary password and a link to log in to the portal.
Step 2 - Logging in to WithSecure Elements Security Center
Use the Business Account to log in to WithSecure™ Elements Security Center at https://elements.f-secure.com/.
All product settings are under Endpoint Protection or Endpoint Detection and Response on the sidebar.
Step 3 - Adding devices to your organization
After logging in, add devices for management in one of the following ways:
- Using an email invitation - for manually installing a handful of devices
- Downloading an installer with an embedded subscription - suited for automated deployment to a large number of devices
Using an email invitation
In Elements Security Center, select Endpoint Protection > Devices > three-dots icon > Add new device.
Follow the steps in the wizard to select the subscription to use and send an email invitation to one or more users with a download link to the installer.
Downloading the installer
- Under Elements Endpoint Protection, select Downloads.
- Select the desired installation package.
- Select the product with an embedded subscription key that you can be distribute with your tools.
Step 4 - Creating additional administrator accounts for other users in your organization
To create a new administrator account, in Elements Security Center, on the sidebar, select Endpoint Protection > Accounts > [three-dots icon} > Create new administrator.
The accounts that you created have access to both Endpoint Protection and Endpoint Detection and Response if there is a valid subscription for these products.
