What is endpoint detection and response (EDR)?

Endpoint detection and response (EDR) is a cybersecurity solution that involves continuous monitoring and gathering of data from endpoints to discover and address cyberthreats in real-time. Also known as endpoint threat detection and response (ETDR), EDR extends on the capabilities of an endpoint protection platform (EPP) by proactively identifying cyberthreats and preventing widespread security incidents.

Endpoint Detection and Response Features

To effectively detect, contain, analyze and remediate from a cyberattack, an EDR solution should include tools to monitor and collect data regarding file transfers, processes, activity and connections into a central repository for analysis; work within a network’s systems to act based on preconfigured rules, such as to log off a user and alert the security team when there is a known type of breach; and provide real-time analytics to triage potentially malicious events and forensics tools for threat hunting and a post-mortem following an attack.

AI and ML are increasingly important features of effective EDR because many cyberthreats evolve more quickly and strike before an signature-based EDR solutions can update to identify and contain them. AI-driven EDR can find cyberthreats that humans alone cannot.
