EDR is a real-time threat detection and monitoring solution focused on IT, IoT, and OT endpoints. Comprehensive EDR solutions combine traditional Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) capabilities with additional investigative mechanisms. EDR identifies indicators of compromise (IoCs) on hosts with additional automation to enable a higher degree of rapid response and remediation to threats.
As enterprise networks grow more complex and distributed with both on-premises and cloud-based environments, EDR adoption is on the rise with a 26% annual growth rate and sales projected to reach $7.23 billion by 2026, according to MRC’s Endpoint Detection and Response – Global Market Outlook (2017-2026).
With both demand and adoption on the rise, selecting the right EDR solution for your environment is important. Regardless of vendor, EDR solutions should be assessed using five basic criteria.
