Endpoint detection and response (EDR) is a cybersecurity solution that focuses on monitoring, detecting, and responding to threats at the endpoint level. Endpoints are devices such as computers, laptops, and mobile devices that connect to an organization’s network.
EDR works by continuously monitoring endpoint activity and analyzing data for signs of malicious behavior. When a potential threat is detected, the EDR solution can automatically respond by isolating the affected endpoint. EDR solutions also provide detailed information about the detected threat, including its origin, behavior, and impact.
