What is EDR (Endpoint Detection & Response)?

In the last article, we mentioned that Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is in line with implementing the concept of Zero Trust because EDR involves continuous monitoring which ensures Visibility. Now we’re going to take a closer look at EDR. To put it simply, by keeping an eye on what’s happening on your Endpoint, such as your PC, you will be aware of what’s going on with your computer and take actions immediately if any problem occurs.

Comparison between Vaccine (Anti-virus) and EDR

As we can see from the above graph, EDR has more functions than Vaccine, including such capabilities as identification, protection, detection, response, etc., while Vaccine provides only a recovery function.
