What is Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR)?
As its name suggests, Endpoint detection and response (EDR) detects and responds to threats in your networking environment. An effective EDR strategy includes:
Today’s malware is designed to appear safe to perimeter defenses. For that reason, Microsoft Defender for Cloud Suite uses continuous AI file analysis backed by a comprehensive cyber threat intelligence database to observe how each file interacts with the endpoint. Once a file exhibits threatening behavior, Defender flags and alerts your IT team.
Before malicious software can infect a multiple applications, processes, and users, Defender for Cloud Suite isolates it from the rest of the network.
By sandboxing the file within a contained environment, the threat’s activity is monitored and analyzed. This information will be used to update the cyber threat intelligence system against future threats.
After the Defender for Cloud Suite determines where the threat came from, your IT team can remediate the infected endpoint or restore it from backup.
Microsoft Defender for Cloud is a Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tool that continually assesses your cloud security posture. It works with Azure, on-premise servers, and extends to multi-cloud environments like Amazon AWS, and Google.
