Endpoint Detection & Response
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) provides your organization with the next generation antivirus solution by continuously monitoring endpoints and employing automatic prevention policies to stop malicious activity.
Your Endpoints, Defended
EDR protects you and your organization by delivering a consistent level of protection across all endpoints. Whether your organization is remote-first or has a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policy, the right EDR solution can reduce your organization’s risk surface area. VirtualArmour can install and manage the best EDR solution for your environment, and our team can manage the EDR solution to meet the security demands of your environment. EDR can defend your organization from external sources such as USB devices, control local firewalls on endpoints, and permit/deny at an endpoint level.
Defend Against Threats, Starting with Endpoints
Install EDR Solution
VirtualArmour will provide your team with the required files to rollout and install an EDR solution across your environment.
Review Existing Assets within Environment
After installing your EDR solution, VirtualArmour will take an inventory of the endpoints in your environment and provide an assessment of known risks.
VISIBILITY & POLICY
Categorizing of Endpoints
VirtualArmour will categorize your endpoints to provide you the visibility that meets your needs. Together, VirtualArmour and your organization will define your endpoint policies to ensure your EDR solution works seamlessly in your environment. This will be done by categorizing endpoints, splitting endpoints into designated servers and workstations.
EDR equips you with complete visibility into your environment’s endpoint activity. Your team will have visibility into process execution, user logins, removable storage devices, addresses of where a host is connected, and more.
Bolster Security Posture
Based on what your environment looks like and your specific requirements, VirtualArmour will define a tailored endpoint policy.
Applying preventative endpoint policies can stop malicious activity in your environment. EDR enables you to employ changes to local firewall policies and USB device control policies at your discretion. Every environment is different, with differing risk profiles, and we understand the importance of getting your EDR policy right.
Managed SIEM & EDR
Get more from Managed SIEM by adding EDR for holistic visibility into your environment. With both solutions you can send all logs from your EDR solution to your SIEM, providing better visibility. Data provided from EDR will be used to correlate malicious incidents. Capturing and correlating more data position paints a better picture of your overall environment and enables improved incident management and response.
A Forward-Thinking Approach to Endpoint Protection
When new vulnerabilities are announced, you need to quickly assess what in your environment is at risk for exploitation (laptops, smartphones, services, etc.). Our security solutions are deployed on your endpoint devices to prevent malicious activity, to investigate, and to respond 24/7/365.
MANAGED SIEM INCLUDES:
- Vulnerability scanning and assessment
- Endpoint detection and response (endpoint telemetry)
- Network asset monitoring
- File Integrity Monitoring (FIM)
- Endpoint compliance and Host Information
- Profile (HIP) checks
What does EDR cover?
EDR stands for Endpoint Detection and Response. This type of software protects your network’s access points (i.e. any device that can access the network). EDR software continuously monitors your endpoint devices for ransomware, malware, and other threats. By providing real-time visibility for your network’s endpoint devices, EDR software allows you to notice and deal with threats to those devices more quickly.
Do I need both EDR and antivirus?
EDR is sometimes referred to as “next generation antivirus software”, while standard antivirus software is now commonly referred to as “legacy AV”. The main reason for this is that EDR continuously monitors endpoint devices and allows for a response to threats as soon as they appear, whereas legacy AV software must generally be activated in order to detect threats. Legacy AV software usually has some preventative capabilities, but these are often insufficient to deal with significant security threats. For this reason, we suggest using EDR on top of any antivirus software your network’s devices are already using.
Why is EDR important?
EDR compliments traditional or “legacy” antivirus software, increasing your organization’s ability to protect your physical endpoint devices from threats. Not only can EDR software automatically isolate compromised devices after a security breach, but it can also provide alerts, tools, and forensic information to your cybersecurity team to help them investigate and address the incident.
How could I benefit from managed EDR?
EDR provides alerts, tools, and data in the event of a security threat, but it takes qualified professionals to use EDR software and its capabilities properly. Managed EDR solutions ensure that your EDR software is always maintained and administered by a team of experts who can search through and interpret the data it supplies, then hunt threats and contain malicious activities effectively.
Is having EDR enough to keep my organization secure?
EDR software helps protect your endpoint devices, but it works best in combination with a SIEM solution that can provide a single pane of visibility for all traffic on your network. We offer both of these services, along with vulnerability scanning, firewalls, and other cybersecurity solutions designed to work in harmony for total network protection.
