Organizations are already starting to grapple with existing Endpoint Detection and Response tooling in the following areas:
- Visibility and detection: Blind spots make it difficult to understand what is happening.
- Analysis and research: Security teams suffer from a lack of data or are flooded with large amounts of data.
- Incident response: More and more resources – and the associated hours - are needed to respond accurately to incidents.
In addition, classic EDR solutions have the following disadvantages:
- Difficult to use: EDR can be complex in use and relies heavily on expert and available security analysts.
- Limited added value: The lack of proactive protection and automatic response leads to overloaded security teams.
- Resource-intensive: They are expensive, time-consuming and require dedicated (specialized) staff.
As a result, businesses are overwhelmed and left with questions such as: is the threat over now or are we still under attack? Has the threat spread, are we out-of-compliance? What should I prioritize, how should I respond and where else is the threat? And perhaps most importantly, how do I prevent this for the future?
To address the above it is advisable to look at a solution with intelligent EDR. All expertise is then provided from within. This provides the most important three aspects in a solution:
- Insight: in understandable human language displayed, prioritized and focused on automatic actions.
- Research: to threaten the search and investigation of and "hunt" throughout the business domain.
- Data: correlated, automatically placed in proper context and organized in an orderly way.
EDR starts by providing the most powerful protection - stopping outbreaks before they start contributes significantly to its effectiveness. The expertise should come from the solution itself as much as possible, rather than by the actions of a person. The incident response should be automated.
Stopping the attacks before they start must be configured within the Endpoint solution to proactively prevent threats. As a result, the workload for human resources is significantly reduced.
