Endpoint security has always been a challenge with the fast pace of technology change, but the almost-overnight move to remote working, learning and even medical consultations was a game changer. The increase in BYOD devices on networks has caused particualr problems, with 67% of IT professionals believing that their use has decreased thier organisation's security posture.
With the number of endpoints in, or even outside, your network likely to have escalated very quickly, plus the rapidly evolving threat landscape, it’s more important than ever to have effective endpoint protection that includes detection and response capabilities.
So many endpoints, so many solutions
Endpoint protection is a broad term that covers everything from antivirus through to endpoint detection and response (EDR) and sophisticated prevention platforms, so brings it with a huge catalogue of options to consider and vendors vying for your attention.
Having an appreciation of the threat landscape in the context of your organisation and how the solution will contribute to your overall cyber security strategy should help with determining the right option for you. But understanding all the different possibilities and how to integrate them into your existing security operations can still be a challenge.
Maple’s security experts can work with your team to understand their requirements and existing solutions and suggest appropriate endpoint protection solutions. We can then configure and deploy the solution for you to manage, or we can manage it for you.
Combining continuous monitoring and collection of endpoint data with analysis, EDR solutions provide security teams with visibility of operations from endpoints such as system changes, memory activities, modifications, and local connections. This enables them to spot patterns, behaviours, indicators of compromise or other hidden clues that might suggest malicious activity. Find out how EDR works with network detection and response (NDR) and security information and event management (SIEM) to significantly reduce the risk of attackers operating undetected inside your infrastructure in Gartner’s SOC Visibility Triad in our blog.
