Guarding Against Threats from


Ensuring Security


Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is responsible for inspecting endpoint devices to detect and respond to all major threats, such as malware and ransomware

What is EDR ?

EDR stands for Endpoint Detection and Response, a concept and technology used to protect computer systems and networks from attacks and intrusions, such as malware and other threats that may occur at endpoints like personal computers, servers, or other connected devices.

The EDR system assists in detecting both known and unknown threats and responds to them, even if there hasn’t been any previous response from existing protection tools. EDR can detect and record system activities, such as program launches, file system access, data transmission over the network, in order to analyze and identify potential threats within the system. EDR systems can also respond immediately to attacks to mitigate or limit the resulting damage

Key EDR Functions

Threat detection

EDR solutions use multiple techniques to detect malicious or suspicious activity on an endpoint. This includes behavioral analytics, heuristics, and machine learning algorithms.

Threat response

Once a threat has been detected, EDR solutions can take action to block or contain it. This may involve quarantining the infected files, isolating the device from the network, or deleting malicious files.

Reporting and alerts

DR solutions can generate reports on detected threats and send alerts when certain thresholds are met. This helps administrators stay informed of potential threats and quickly mitigate any damage.

Things to consider on choosing EDR Solution

When evaluating an EDR solution, you should consider its ability to effectively detect and respond to threats and its impact on performance and false positives. The ideal solution will have a high detection rate for known and unknown threats while minimizing false positives and maintaining good performance.

How Does EDR Work?

EDR systems are designed to complement traditional security solutions such as antivirus and firewalls. While these solutions effectively protect against known threats, they cannot always detect or respond to new or unknown threats. EDR provides an additional layer of protection by constantly monitoring devices for suspicious activity and reacting quickly to potential threats.

  • An agent is installed on each endpoint.
  • A central management console.
  • A cloud-based analytics service.

The agent monitors activity on the endpoint and sends information back to the console, where the analytics service can analyze it.
