Endpoint Detection Response (EDR), also known as Endpoint Detection and Threat Response (EDTR) is an endpoint security solution which monitors the end-user devices to identify and respond to threats like malware or ransomware.
EDR security solutions keep record of endpoint user/system level behaviour and thereby detect suspicious behaviours using various data analytics techniques, prevents malicious activities and provides suggestions to restore the infected systems.
EDR provides continuous and comprehensive visibility of whatever is happening in the endpoint systems in real time ensuring that no suspicious act remains un-noticed which otherwise remains invisible to track.
Every organisation faces adversaries eventually no matter what advanced technologies they implement. Here is a list of some key factors that makes EDR solutions important for your security.
