Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Services

Since the creation of the first consumer antivirus solution by IBM in 1987, many organizations have utilized these definition-based products to protect their organizations. These solutions operate by calling to their home servers at certain intervals (usually once every 4 to 24 hours) to download a new list of known viruses, then scanning your devices and looking for those viruses. This type of solution only works as long as the threats you encounter have already been cataloged by your antivirus provider. But what happens if you encounter a brand new virus that has not yet been identified? You might fall victim to the undetected attack!

The answer to this problem: endpoint detection and response (EDR), also known as endpoint threat detection and response (ETDR). EDR tools are technology platforms that can alert security teams of malicious activity, and enable fast investigation and containment of attacks on endpoints. An endpoint can be an employee workstation or laptop, a server, a cloud system, a mobile or IoT device. Compass IT Compliance offers EDR solutions to provide comprehensive visibility and protection across all attack vectors and leverage response automation – fully automating response workflows across the entire environment, backed by a 24/7 managed detection and response (MDR) service.
