What is EDR - Endpoint Detection Response?

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions record key activity of endpoints and provide security analysts with necessary information to conduct both reactive and proactive threat investigations.


Traditional endpoint security technologies were focused on preventing potential attacks. However, as attacks grew more sophisticated and pierced even the best prevention technology, new technologies were required to both enable detection and guide the response for attacks. These factors gave rise to EDR.
