As part of our security services, our proactive threat hunting solutions include Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) monitoring. 

Detect threats potentially missed by traditional anti-virus with EDR

EDR is an advanced threat hunting and incident response security solution that is installed on endpoints such as workstations (laptops, desktops) and servers to monitor and respond to security threats in real-time. 

A few of the benefits of EDR include:
  • Detects threats that may be missed by traditional anti-virus/anti-malware software.
  • Finds viruses/malware and monitors suspicious traffic and fileless attacks.
  • Real-time response for potential issues while not interrupting the user’s workspace.
  • Identifies standard operational patterns and detects anomalies once the normal process is learned.
  • Uses built-in machine learning and advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to identify abnormal behaviors and helps address known malware, suspicious activity, and new or unknown exploits such as zero-day attacks.
  • Collects data directly from the workstation instead of logs.

Monitor behavioral analytics with SIEM

SIEM analyzes data from multiple sources including logs and events on network devices, servers, and endpoints, while using the data to identify potential incidents for a comprehensive security view.

SIEM highlights include:
  • Fulfills several compliance requirements.
  • Uses behavioral analytics by taking a several week snapshot of device activity and determines regular activity over-time. This is the process of gathering insight into the network events that users generate every day.
  • Provides a centralized location for log file review to help determine signs of a threat, attack, or breach by reviewing endpoints and network devices including firewalls, access points, DNS/ Internet sites, and file shares.
  • Uses Application Programming Interface (API) or automation tools to help reduce response time of incidents.
  • Sees how devices are interacting with each other and identifies and investigates abnormal activity.

Use a layered approach for advanced threat monitoring

  • Using both EDR and SIEM for a complete security monitoring solution to provide our security team a full picture of your organization’s environment to allow for comparison of data.
  • EDR and SIEM are not mutually exclusive, EDR is focused on detecting and responding to threats on individual endpoints, while SIEM technology provides complete visibility into an organization’s IT infrastructure by collecting data from multiple sources for analysis. Both of these solutions together, enables our security team to catch events when prevention measures fail.
What are the risk factors if not implemented?
  • Limited Threat Visibility: Without EDR and SIEM, you might lack comprehensive visibility into your network and endpoints. This means you'll have difficulty identifying and tracking potential security incidents and breaches, which could allow threats to go undetected for extended periods
  • Delayed Threat Detection: EDR and SIEM technologies enable real-time monitoring and alerting. Without them, you might not detect threats promptly, giving attackers more time to compromise systems, steal data, or escalate their attacks.
  • Ineffective Incident Response: EDR/SIEM solutions provide the tools and insights necessary to respond effectively to security incidents. Without them, your incident response capabilities could be slower and less efficient, leading to prolonged downtime and increased damage.
  • Compliance Violations: Many industries have regulatory compliance requirements that mandate the use of EDR/SIEM tools to ensure data protection and security.
