What is EDR
Attackers can easily bypass prevention controls. That’s why detection and response capabilities are an important addition to a robust cyber security strategy to identify and stop attacks before serious damage is done. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an emerging technology that leverages tamper-resistant endpoint agents that capture and record core system activity and analyze it for suspicious activity indicative of malware or an attacker. When an attacker is identified, the endpoint can be quarantined to block the attack until remediation can be carried out.
What are the benefits of Endpoint Detection & Response?
Leveraging the power of the latest endpoint protection technology alongside dedicated security professionals, Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is a rapidly maturing area of security dedicated to improving organisations’ ability to hunt for, detect and respond to threats across endpoint devices.
By monitoring processes and binaries across network hosts in real-time, EDR is capable of identifying a broad range of known and unknown attack vectors. Advanced threats identified by EDR include Command & Control (C2) activity, policy violations, application-specific attacks, file-based malware, and more.
By proactively seeking out threats based on suspicious patterns of behaviour and indicators of compromise (IOCs), EDR significantly enhances threat hunting capabilities and helps to reduce the dwell time of attacks from months to minutes.
Integrating in-depth forensic analysis, EDR provides insight into the kill chain of attacks in order to identify the root cause and scope of intrusions as well as facilitate the swift isolation of infected hosts.
Why choose a managed service for endpoint protection?
Endpoint Detection and Response is a fully managed 24/7 endpoint security service supplying experienced threat hunters, latest detection technology and up-to-the minute threat intelligence for an affordable monthly subscription.
Designed to address the growing resource and budgetary pressures of managing cyber security in-house, ThreatDetect EDR fulfils all essential endpoint security functions to provide the actionable outputs need to respond quickly and effectively to attacks.
EDR’s experienced threat hunters continuously apply their collective knowledge of the latest hacking tools and techniques, experience of threat detection across industries. This allows them to get the most out of the latest endpoint technologies in order to help significantly improve detection and response efforts, prioritise remediation and reduce needless investigation of false positives.
