Due to an ever-increasing inability for legacy, last-gen anti-virus solutions to detect and remediate today's cyber threats it has become more important to adopt a modern, next-generation endpoint protection, detection, response and remediation platform for your business. The term can confuse people that are looking for advanced AV solutions in this crowded new field of enterprise security solutions.
What, exactly, is EDR? How is it different from legacy AV and EPP (Endpoint Protection Platforms)? And how and why did it come into existence? Has EDR really solved the problems it was designed to address? In this post, we explain the past, present, and future of EDR.
The SentinelOne Endpoint Detection and Response Platform unifies prevention, detection, and response in a single purpose-built agent powered by machine learning and automation, SentinelOne’s single-agent technology uses a Static AI engine to provide pre-execution protection, while Post-Execution behavioral AI engines track all processes and their interrelationships regardless of how long they are active. Post-Execution, automated EDR provides rich forensic data and can mitigate threats automatically, perform network isolation, and auto-immunize the endpoints against newly discovered threats.
