Endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions help security teams to block, identify and remediate malicious activity on corporate endpoints, including workstations, laptops, mobile and IoT devices, cloud systems, and servers.
To achieve this, EDR solutions monitor each endpoint in real-time for threats, aggregating and analyzing data—such as process execution, communications and user logins—to identify anomalous, suspicious and potentially malicious activities. The solution uses this data to initiate automated responses to contain or remediate threats, as well as help inform the security team’s threat investigation and response processes.
Implementing an endpoint detection and response solution empowers IT security teams to take a proactive approach to their cybersecurity. The right solution can enable organizations to minimize endpoint risk by gaining greater visibility into their network, carrying out more informed investigations into threats, and more efficiently and effectively remediating threats with automated response workflows.
In this article, we’ll explore the top EDR solutions designed to help you identify and remove threats to your network’s endpoints. These solutions offer a range of capabilities, including real-time endpoint monitoring, threat data analysis, automated threat response and centralized management. We’ll give you some background information on the provider and the key features of each solution, as well as the type of customer that they are most suitable for.
