@User48392054 You can scan for rootkits with ENS via an On Demand Scan with the option of "memory for rootkits" selected. 
You can also refer to a tool that is available as stand-alone utility used to detect and remove complex rootkits and associated malware:

Re: Does EndPoint security threat prevention can check UEFI rootkit

Dear Jess,

First thanks a lot for your answer.

Do you have more details about Lojax being part of rootkit detected by ENS?

This rootkit is quiet recent and use a trojanizd version of a white listed application.

Thanks for any information you could share on the Lojax UEFI rootkit created by Mcafee.

Best regards and thanks again.
