Endpoint protection technologies have traditionally been focused on preventing malware from infecting endpoints, which are proliferating rapidly in number and which are now used by adversaries as a preferred threat vector. They were focused on preventing infection, rather than on detecting threats that have gained a foothold on the network and removing them. EDR technologies enable organizations to move from a reactive to a proactive security stance that enables detection of even advanced, previously unseen threats, providing context regarding how the threat has impacted the network so that remediation can be prioritized to focus on the most critical events.
