Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR)

The evolution of cyber attacks in terms of frequency and attack methods (multi-channel and multi-target), as well as the ongoing digitalization process, exposes organizations to vulnerabilities that weaken continuity plans, data protection, critical infrastructures monitoring and, more generally, the business.


Endpoint Detection & Response: The Context

During the last year, the misuse of login credentials and the increasing use of applications and devices has led to a significant increase in security incidents [1].

Cyber ​​attacks are becoming one of the first risk scenarios with the highest probability of happening year after year[2].

When it comes to cybersecurity, we cannot fail to refer to the financial loss generated by the destruction or malfunction of the information system of organizations, caused by the chain of malicious actors who intend to take advantage of data theft or operations compromise.

However, if cybersecurity threats are now classified as high risk, the actions taken by organizations are on the rise.


Endpoint Protection (EPP)

Among the first security services useful for protecting workstations and servers we find Endpoint Protection (EPP), whose purpose is to harmonize the trade-off between lean operations and IT security.

EPPs allows to prevent and block suspicious activities related to malware and applications “listed” as malicious.

These solutions, in fact, exploit signature databases that must be constantly updated in order to adequately protect the endpoints – an endpoint, essentially, is a workstation (PC or Tablet), a server, or a mobile device.

In recent years, the need has shifted from protection towards the search for detection and response solutions.

The reason for this evolution is linked to the need to reduce the detection times of malicious activities and, at the same time, to implement remediation actions with technical support or skills higher than those available to organizations internally.

This made it necessary to implement security solutions that bypass the file comparison mechanism.


Endpoint Detection & Response: Telsy’s proposal

Endpoint Detection and Reponse (EDR) is a solution aimed at organizations that need to improve the protection of workstations and servers with tools that allow the automatic detection and block of threats.

Telsy’s EDR solution integrates protection with active analysis of the behavior and activities that are performed on endpoints.

The core of the solution is designed to continuously collect data from all network endpoints, analyzing it in real-time for evidence of known or suspected threats.

The solution guarantees the protection of organizations, users, and assets from all malicious events that overcome the blocks of traditional antivirus, offering the possibility to identify, remove or contain the most advanced threats.

The approach that paid attention to defending the perimeter of the company remains indispensable and necessary, but no longer sufficient.

We must be aware that the working modalities of malevolent actors and users has changed, therefore we need to equip ourselves with increasingly innovative tools and technologies capable of adapting to the evolution of scenarios.
