Endpoint Detection and Response

Boosting endpoint security by eliminating risks posed by advanced threats

Traditional antivirus solutions, as well as other, more-pointed solutions, provide enterprises with preventative endpoint protection, which means they react to new files entering a system and, if deemed malicious, automatically stop them from running. Despite this, attackers are still able to penetrate endpoints. This is because they use innovative techniques that stealthily compromise systems without triggering these defenses.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution helps organizations to identify, isolate and remove endpoint threats in real-time. EDR solutions detect suspicious or threatening activity on endpoints by constantly monitoring endpoints activities and allowing for immediate response. The information collected from the monitoring process is recorded to be analyzed and investigated for taking corrective measures.

Endpoint Detection & Response solution Detects the security incidents, Contain that incident at the endpoint, Investigates that security incident and provide Remediation guidance bases on the Forensics. EDR is able to respond to threats in real-time. Many endpoint threats can bypass traditional and advanced security in the time it takes for a human to respond to the activity. With EDR organizations can achieve Automated Detection process, ability to Respond Quickly and Reduced Detection Time significantly. EDR solutions offer complete, in-depth visibility across all the organizations endpoints, with all devices covered for threat across organization, managing of thousands of endpoint agents including centralized management console. 

Endpoint detection and response, or EDR, solutions provide a different capability to the security stack. With EDR in place, security teams can continuously collect, record, and store endpoint data, providing them with surveillance-like visibility they can use to investigate a past incident or to proactively hunt for threats in their environment

EDR is often equated to highly-skilled security professionals or security operations centers (SOCs), who use their advanced experience and knowledge to navigate the EDR data stores to uncover subtle activities that indicate compromise. However, next-generation antivirus (NGAV) solutions are now incorporating EDR capabilities to help security teams of all sizes and skill-levels identify threats and investigate incidents beyond prevention.
