Protect your organisation and detect both current and emerging threats with our advanced Endpoint Detection and Response.

What is EDR?

Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is a modern security solution, which has evolved from traditional Anti-Virus (AV). With cybercriminals now cracking the code of traditional AV solutions, EDR uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to identify and monitor all unusual behaviours, rather than only detecting and actioning known threats.

Centered on endpoint detection, EDR is an 'always on' approach to threat detection and response, protecting your organisation from 'Zero-Day' attacks and malicious activities.


How does Managed EDR work?

Managed EDR works by continually monitoring network events on end user devices through behaviour analytics. These events are recorded to a database, where EDR further analyses and investigates the data to either associate with past events, or look for similar threats.

If a threat is identified, EDR then notifies not only the end user but those users associated with the management console, creating detailed logs regarding the attack. Managed EDR can respond to threats in real time, regardless of whether the user in on or offline. 


How does Managed EDR protect your organisation?

Managed EDR protects your organisation by:

  • Protecting from the unknown: Unlike tools that only monitor for known threats, EDR can help you detect suspicious activities that may indicate an unknown threat type.
  • Telling the full story: Unlike traditional Anti-Virus, EDR can help provide more context behind an attack, logging how the threat entered the machine and attempted to execute so that you can tailor your response.
  • Providing real time response: EDR delivers real-time visibility into your endpoints to help you quickly identify malicious activity.
  • Ensuring every second counts: EDR can help you accelerate your investigation so that you can limit the damage a breach does to your business.
