EDR is defined as a solution that “records and stores behavior at endpoint systems, uses various data analysis techniques to detect suspicious system behavior, provides contextual information, blocks malicious activity, and provides remediation to restore affected systems.”
How does an EDR system work?
Our EDR security solutions account for and record activities and events that occur across all workloads and certainly endpoints, providing security teams with the visibility they need to uncover incidents that would otherwise remain invisible. Know that an EDR solution must provide continuous and complete visibility into what is happening on endpoints in real time.
An EDR tool should provide advanced threat detection, investigation and response capabilities – including incident data search and triage of investigative alerts, suspicious activity validation, threat hunting, and malicious activity detection and containment.
Key features of our EDR solution
Automatic detection of even the most discrete attackers
EDR technology combines full visibility of all endpoints with IOA and applies behavioral analysis that analyzes billions of events in real time to automatically detect traces of suspicious behavior.
Understanding individual events as part of a larger sequence allows EDR to apply high security logic. If a sequence of events matches a known IOA, the EDR tool will identify the activity as malicious and automatically send a detection alert. Users can also write their own custom searches, going back up to 90 days.
Managed threat hunting for proactive defense
With EDR, threat hunters work proactively to research, investigate and advise on threat activity in your environment. When a threat is discovered, we work with your team to triage, investigate and remediate the incident before it becomes a full-blown breach.
Real-time visibility and history
The EDR solution acts as a digital recorder at the endpoint, logging relevant activity to detect incidents that have escaped prevention. As a customer, you get complete visibility into everything that happens on the endpoints from a security perspective, as our monitoring tracks hundreds of different security-related events, such as process creation, driver loading, registry changes, disk access, memory access or network connections.
Endpoint detection and response is able to accelerate the speed of investigation and ultimately remediation because the information gathered from your endpoints is stored in the cloud, with a situational model-based architecture.
The model keeps track of all relationships and contacts between each endpoint event using a massive and powerful graphical database, which provides detail and context quickly and at scale, for both historical and real-time data. This enables security teams to quickly investigate incidents.
This speed and level of visibility, coupled with integrated and contextualized intelligence, provides the information needed to gain a deep understanding of the data. This enables security teams to effectively track even the most sophisticated attacks and quickly discover, sort, validate and prioritize incidents, leading to faster and more accurate remediation.
