Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

What is Endpoint Detection and Response?

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is a cybersecurity approach that focuses on detecting and responding to security incidents that occur on endpoint devices such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. EDR solutions provide organisations with real-time visibility into endpoint activity, enabling them to quickly identify and respond to potential security threats.

EDR solutions use a combination of techniques, including behavioral analysis, machine learning, and threat intelligence, to detect and respond to security incidents. Behavioral analysis involves monitoring endpoint activity and detecting abnormal behavior that could indicate a security threat. Machine learning involves analysing large amounts of data to identify patterns and anomalies that could indicate a security threat. Threat intelligence involves leveraging information about known threats to identify and respond to potential security incidents.

EDR solutions can provide organisations with a range of capabilities, including real-time monitoring, threat hunting, incident response, and forensics. They can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud, and they can be integrated with other security technologies, such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and security information and event management (SIEM) systems.

In summary, EDR is a critical component of an organisation's cybersecurity strategy. By detecting and responding to security incidents on endpoint devices, organisations can minimise the risk of data breaches, cyberattacks, and other security incidents. EDR solutions help to ensure business continuity, protect sensitive data, and maintain the trust of customers and stakeholders.
