Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an integrated endpoint security solution that combines real-time continuous monitoring and collection of endpoint data with rules-based automated response and analysis capabilities.
EDR solution is an effective defense against cyberattacks. In general, most cyberattacks are hidden. The malware used in these types of attacks inconspicuously infiltrates the target system. Usually, data theft remains undetected. This is especially true when the systems are insufficiently protected. But it is quite a different case with ransomware.
The main difference between a typical cyberattack based on malware and an attack by ransomware is ransomware directly contacts the user of the affected system. This approach by cybercriminals seems understandable, considering that the offender has already taken control of the target system at this time and offers the victim access to the captured data only by paying a ransom.
Besides, ransomware attacks are automated. Once the cybercriminal starts the process of the attack, no further commands are needed to compromise the target system. It can be observed that individual companies are increasingly becoming the focus of ransomware attacks. And while this form of cyberattack is not new, recent events have shown that a variety of businesses cannot protect themselves from ransomware attacks. Often, corporate security officers face the challenge of detecting the attack at an early stage. An Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution is designed to mitigate such malicious attacks.
EDR will allow the following:
Proactive managed hunting, investigation, and response activity on emerging and advanced threats - leveraging rich data using advanced analytics in the hands of a proven and experienced army of threat hunters.
