Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

EDR (endpoint detection and response) is an endpoint security system that detects, investigates, and responds to cyber attacks.

By capturing granular endpoint activity and monitoring for signals of malicious behavior, EDR systems provide better insight into what’s going on on endpoints. If the EDR technology identifies any of these harmful signals, it will give security analysts the knowledge they need to perform reactive and preventive threat investigations, reducing the effect of an attack.

An EDR security system’s primary functions are to:

  • Endpoint activity data that potentially indicate a danger should be monitored and collected.
  • Analyze the data to find trends in the threats.
  • Detect risks and automatically respond to eliminate or contain them, as well as inform security professionals.
  • To investigate risks and look for suspicious activity, forensics and analytical techniques are used.
