7 Things You Should Know About Endpoint Detection and Response
Endpoint detection and response (EDR) is the process of monitoring endpoint activity in real time, looking for digital threats and implementing measures to halt and remediate those threats. Conventional forms of endpoint protection, which include antivirus/antimalware tools and firewalls, protect against known threats. EDR, in contrast, also identifies novel threats and behavior-based attacks. Moreover, EDR can take active steps to mitigate threats, protecting the devices and systems connected to the network.
