Historically, consolidating your business has meant consolidating your network edge. While you still needed a few basic things, like antivirus for your endpoints, the focus on network-based protections did a great job of keeping your organization safe. Most of the data and endpoints were located within physical boundaries so that they were kept relatively secure by circulating sensitive assets with security technologies such as firewalls and network IDS / IPS. With so many investments in the network, the threat actors have also evolved and started to follow the end point: your desks, laptops and servers.

 

Not only were the finish points less secure, but the needs for business and employees have evolved, giving attackers more room to take advantage. Data has begun to move to the cloud, and end users regularly work from home, cafes, the airport and elsewhere. Business operating systems and software applications need frequent updates and security patches that are difficult to keep up with the normal IT team. Therefore, there may even be a known vulnerability that was fixed years ago by the vendor of the uncoated software in your environment. And threats only need one gap to get to your group. The physical margin is largely dispersed and the endpoints are both the new margin and the weakest link.

Endpoint Protection Platforms Against Endpoint Detection and Response

 

Endpoints are the target of threat actors because they provide access to all the critical information attackers want, and a growing remote workforce, combined with a dearth of trained security professionals, makes their endpoints easier. to reach and explode. For this reason, endpoint security is now a priority for most organizations. To ensure that you choose the most effective and efficient combination of products and services, you must understand the difference between endpoint protection platforms (EPP) and managed endpoint security services and response (EDR).

 

 

Terminal Protection Platform (EPP)

PREVENT - DETECT - RESPOND - FORECAST

 

EPP includes a wide range of security technologies that work together to protect your endpoints, with an emphasis on threat prevention. A unified EPP can include antivirus, next-generation antivirus (NGAV), antispyware, host IDS / IPS, and other endpoint security technologies.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

PREVENT - DETECT - RESPOND - FORECAST

 

While threat prevention is key, nothing blocks all threats, so EDR technology is necessary to provide visibility into threats that EPP technologies elude. The goal of EDR is detection and response - find the threat actors that may reside on your endpoints and get the information you need to remove them. Unlike the native operating system or device logs, EDR technology collects telemetry data specifically designed to identify cyber threats, even those that don't use malware.
