ENDPOINT DETECTION & RESPONSE
EDR security solutions record the activities and events taking place on endpoints and all workloads, providing security teams with the visibility they need to uncover incidents that would otherwise remain invisible. An EDR solution needs to provide continuous and comprehensive visibility into what is happening on endpoints in real time. EDR solutions should offer advanced threat detection, investigation and response capabilities — including incident data search and investigation alert triage, suspicious activity validation, threat hunting, and malicious activity detection and containment.
XDR (extended detection and response) collects and automatically correlates data across multiple security layers – email, endpoint, server, cloud workload, and network. This allows for faster detection of threats and improved investigation and response times through security analysis.
Patch management is the process of distributing and applying updates to software. These patches are often necessary to correct errors (also referred to as “vulnerabilities” or “bugs”) in the software. Common areas that will need patches include operating systems, applications, and embedded systems (like network equipment). When a vulnerability is found after the release of a piece of software, a patch can be used to fix it. Doing so helps ensure that assets in your environment are not susceptible to exploitation.
Vulnerability management is the process of identifying, evaluating, treating, and reporting on security vulnerabilities in systems and the software that runs on them. This, implemented alongside with other security tactics, is vital for organizations to prioritize possible threats and minimizing their “attack surface.” Security vulnerabilities, in turn, refer to technological weaknesses that allow attackers to compromise a product and the information it holds. This process needs to be performed continuously in order to keep up with new systems being added to networks, changes that are made to systems, and the discovery of new vulnerabilities over time.
Gain quick insight into your inventory using automated software. This accurate inventory is essential to build a secure enviroment. The Hardware inventory details include information like, memory, operating system, manufacturer, device types, peripherals, etc. The software inventory provides details of the software detected in the network grouped by volume and software vendors.
Network Access Control
Network access control, also called network admission control, is a method to bolster the security, visibility and access management of a proprietary network. It restricts the availability of network resources to endpoint devices and users that comply with a defined security policy.
Deception technology is a category of cybersecurity solutions that detect threats early with low rates of false positives. The technology deploys realistic decoys (e.g., domains, databases, directories, servers, apps, files, credentials, breadcrumbs) in a network alongside real assets to act as lures. These decoys buy your team more time to seal the breach while preventing hackers from reaching any sensitive assets.
Endpoint data loss prevention tools protect data in use, in motion and at rest by installing agents on any endpoint devices capable of accessing and storing an enterprise’s sensitive data. These agents enforce predefined policies for data used by authorized users and applications in day-to-day business operations and block any activity that could violate those policies. They can also use encryption to secure any data being transmitted to portable devices so only those for whom the data is intended for can access it.
Hard Disk Encryption
Hard disk encryption is a technology that encrypts the data stored on a hard drive using sophisticated mathematical functions. Data on an encrypted hard drive cannot be read by anyone who does not have access to the appropriate key or password.
