Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an integrated, layered approach to endpoint protection that combines real-time continuous monitoring and endpoint data. This approach supplies a more complete understanding of the endpoint environment, and as a result, organizations can detect threats earlier and respond faster.

The EDR approach is based on the following three pillars:

Real-time Continuous Monitoring: The EDR solution continuously checks endpoints for malicious activity in real time. This includes both host files, network traffic, process activity, registry accesses, and more.

Endpoint Data: The EDR solution leverages machine learning algorithms to correlate information from multiple sources to supply context around endpoints in order to identify suspicious behavior.

Integrated Approach: The EDR solution integrates with existing endpoint protection solutions such as antivirus software or firewalls. It also integrates with SIEM (security information and event management) solutions for centralized reporting and analysis of the data collected on endpoints across the organization.

SafetyNet a Midwest Computech cybersecurity solution supplies an all-in-one approach to your cybersecurity needs and can be customized to include your EDR needs.   Ransomware is one of the most common cyber-attacks. It can be very damaging and costly to victims. Ransomware attacks often combine multiple advanced techniques with real-time hacking. To minimize your risk of falling victim, you should keep your software up to date, back up your data regularly, and use strong passwords.  SafetyNet combined with endpoint detection and response, EDR, can be part of your bulletproof vest safeguarding your organization against threat and problems.

Our deep learning approach is a technique in which artificial neural networks are used to train computers to do tasks by themselves. It is the new frontier of machine learning and has been used for everything from analyzing the effectiveness of cancer treatments to finding the best way to deliver mail.  The integration of deep learning into endpoint security has supplied a new approach for malware detection, prevention, and remediation. Intercept X has taken this one step further by integrating deep learning into its endpoint protection platform.

With Midwest Computech, a Missouri Based Company, you can be sure we use exploit prevention.  This stops the techniques used in file-less, malware-less, and exploit-based attacks. It is a crucial measure for any organization that has its data and security at stake.

Exploit prevention is important because it protects from malware, which can be delivered through a variety of methods. Infection vectors include:

Malware - software designed to infiltrate and take control of a computer system without the user’s knowledge

Fileless - an attack in which malicious code runs without being saved to disk

Exploit - an attack that exploits a vulnerability in software or hardware

An exploit is typically used by malware to gain access to your system. It can also be used by hackers who are trying to breach your network security.
