Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an emerging technology. The term defines a category of tools and solutions that focus on detecting, investigating, and mitigating suspicious activities and issues on hosts and endpoints. Originally dubbed Endpoint Threat Detection and Response (ETDR), the term is now more commonly referred to as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR).
A rapidly growing field, there are numerous software tools focused on endpoint detection and response as well as tools and solutions with broader offerings that include endpoint detection and response as a core or supplemental capability. Digital Guardian is recognized by industry analysts as a leading provider of endpoint detection and response solutions.
WHY ENDPOINT DETECTION AND RESPONSE MATTERS ?
Advanced persistent threats and customized targeted malware attack toolkits are intentionally bypassing traditional signature-based antivirus solutions. Endpoint detection and response solutions supplement traditional signature-based technologies for richer behavior-based anomaly detection and visibility across endpoints.
Endpoint detection and response tools offer greater visibility into endpoint data that’s relevant for detecting and mitigating advanced threats, limiting sensitive data loss, and reducing the risk of devastating data breaches occurring on endpoints. Endpoint detection and response tools are complimentary to a variety of other security measures and solutions as well, including data loss prevention (DLP) solutions, security information and event management (SIEM), network forensics tools (NFT), and advanced threat defense (ATD) appliances
