The Importance of Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR)
Mar 29, 2022
As cybercriminals continue to evolve, their attacks have become more sophisticated. Now more than ever endpoint targeting has become more prevalent. Endpoints include not only desktops and servers, but laptops, tablets, smartphones and even smartwatches. For some IT departments, endpoint management can be in the thousands which makes this a prime target for infiltration. Even more critical is the fact that traditional antivirus software is no longer enough to mitigate your cyber risk – enter Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) solutions.
What is EDR?
Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) is a security solution leveraging real-time continuous monitoring and collection of an organization’s endpoint data to detect suspicious system behavior.
What are the benefits of EDR?
Research suggests the average time between a breach and actual detection is over 200 days! EDR solutions help eliminate human response delays through its continuous monitoring which allows for remediation through predictive analysis and advanced threat protection. Once it detects an issue, it automatically takes action to quarantine and remove the threat all while alerting appropriate human administrators to prevent a potentially devastating and costly cyber incident.
- Enhanced visibility into your endpoints and allows for faster response time
- Post-breach detection, remediation, and response
- Machine learning and built-in analytics tools used to identify new and emerging threats
- Prevention of costly intrusion – an IBM study found those organizations that contain a breach in under 30 days save more the $1million.
