AV, while still required, has been demoted. Attackers have become experts in “living off the land”.
These attackers take advantage of the fact that most endpoints are operated and maintained by everyday people, who often don’t have the ability to recognise an endpoint attack, let alone protect against it.
To gain the required visibility dedicated endpoint monitoring tools are now a necessity.
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) security provides organisations with the means to monitor, detect, and respond to endpoint threats. Through the application of EDR solutions and practices, organisations gain visibility into the endpoint of the network. EDR also provides organisations with the tools to protect the network against incoming threats as they occur.
