Could EDR be the end of anti-virus?
What is Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)?
EDR is an integrated security solution that combines real-time, continuous monitoring and collection of endpoint data, with rules-based automated response and analysis capabilities. It will automatically detect and investigate suspicious activities on hosts and endpoints, allowing IT/security teams to instantly detect and respond to threats.
Key features include:
- Automated monitoring and data collection from endpoints that may indicate a threat
- Data analysis to identify potential threat patterns
- Automatic responses to identified threats to remove/contain them and notify security personnel
- Forensics and analysis tools to research any identified threats
The integration of this solution is forecast to increase significantly over the next few years. This is due to rising numbers of endpoints attached to networks, which are easier to infiltrate than a network, as well as the ever-increasing sophistication of cyber attacks.
Traditional anti-virus has worked so far, but it’s time to level up our security systems.
