Learn experiences from cyber-attacks to better secure your business

Businesses are facing well-coordinated and treacherous attackers, including nation-states and cyber-criminals that are determined to breach your cyber defences. Attacks are on the upswing and, with the random nature by which IT networks are infiltrated, it’s becoming an unfortunate inevitability that we will all suffer from an attack at some point, regardless of whether we have been specifically targeted or not.

We shouldn’t have to sit back and suffer… with the severe rate of attacks taking place, why should we not learn lessons from what’s happened and use those lessons to better improve our defences for next time?


Adapt & better protect yourself with Endpoint Detection & Response

With an Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) service, you can not only be actively notified to attacks taking place but benefit from intelligent insights that break-down the steps involved to spot patterns & stop an identical attack from taking place again.

All credible security vendors that supply & support EDR services will authorize their customer’s access to the global intelligence and remedial protection insights gained globally from deployments of their software across each endpoint device.


What can we do with the knowledge and insights?

EDR supports targeted attack analytics, which is a complete approach to attack detection. Making advanced AI and expert threat research available to any organisation that’s a customer of the EDR product.

There is no longer the need to physically correlate scans of your devices, with limited intelligence gained from only your own network. This fragmented approach results in visibility gaps, too many false positives, longer threat dwell times and less precise discovery.

With the power of EDR, your outsourced IT partner or internal IT personnel can be the step-ahead in safeguarding your business with security awareness otherwise unobtainable to them.


How does EDR really work?

EDR collects event data across multiple termination points, including end-user computers, servers, email and cloud applications, providing a complete view across the business and a global view based on telemetry from thousands of enterprises.

The security vendor employs data scientists that create analytic applications, which employ the latest artificial intelligence and advanced machine learning techniques to detect questionable activity. This activity is examined by their own attack investigation teams, whose role it is to regulate actual attack patterns occurring in your environment and feedback critical updates to your console in real-time, with details of the attack actor, the devices impacted by the attack and advice on remedial actions to take to repair & protect further exposure.
