Endpoint Detection and Response Services: Why You Need Them
A cyber attack can take mere minutes, or even seconds, to compromise endpoints. In the face of these growing threats, current signature-based antivirus and anti-malware products can struggle to keep up.
Cyber security teams can no longer rely on first-generation endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools to respond to the fast pace of today’s threats. Aging EDR tools can also be difficult to maintain and drive up security operations costs. What is the answer? Every organization should have a signatureless endpoint security solution that protects servers and workstations from advanced threats.
Thrive’s Managed Endpoint Security and Response, powered by Fortinet’s FortiEDR platform, offers real-time, proactive security across all devices covering legacy and current operating systems. With the right EDR tool in place, organizations have the ability to prevent the theft of data and intrusion of ransomware, automating response and remediation procedures to give security teams a more effective, time-saving solution.
EDR: The Better Solution
Traditional antivirus tools may provide an alert during an attack, but it is often too late for security teams to react and prevent data theft or an intrusion. EDR tools such as FortiEDR use threat intelligence to monitor suspicious behavior, taking a proactive approach to cyber security.
An antivirus alert may help to an extent, but EDR tools such as FortiEDR provide the “why”, analyzing issues so a security team discovers the root cause of an attack. This allows security teams to track unwanted behavior from the initial incident all the way through remediation. FortiEDR also provides automated attack surface policy control that discovers rogue devices and reduces the attack surface through risk-based proactive policies.
FortiEDR’s next-generation antivirus (NGAV) uses machine learning capabilities to protect critical data and prevent breaches, ensuring business continuity even if a device is compromised. With threat protection both pre- and post-infection in real time, organizations have the capability to shut down entry points commonly used by hackers to compromise critical systems.
Thrive’s Endpoint Detection and Response Provides Peace of Mind
Thrive’s Managed Endpoint Detection and Response service offers proactive, real-time automated security with incident response across all devices covering current and legacy operating systems. If a suspicious event is detected, alerting is provided to Thrive’s Security Operations Center 24X7, so immediate remediation steps can be taken.
FortiEDR provides security analysts with detailed malware information pre- and post-infection, so analysts can take the required steps to secure the endpoints with minimal disruption to end users. The playbook-based system allows security teams to put in place a consistent incident response, using security resources only as needed. Instead of the entire team responding to potentially false alarms, automated, real-time incident response allows your entire security team to focus on isolating devices, terminating malicious processes, and deleting malicious files.
Thrive’s Managed Endpoint Security and Response services allow for business continuity if a hack or security event occurs. Keeping systems online and saving time and money, this service protects endpoints and critical data.
