WithSecure EDR is a focused approach to identifying threats on devices, giving better visibility by raising the level of threat intelligence.

Security Breach – 24 May 2024

Cyber threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated thanks to the advent of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence. That evolution means that traditional security measures are no longer sufficient to combat advanced threats. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), sometimes known as Managed Detection and Response (MDR), has become a crucial focus area for businesses, aiding in both robust defense strategies and incident response.

WithSecure EDR solutions offer advanced threat detection, real-time monitoring, and automated response capabilities essential for safeguarding endpoints against sophisticated attacks. EDR solutions are designed to monitor endpoints, such as computers and mobile devices, to detect and respond to cyber threats. They gather and analyse data from endpoints to identify suspicious activities and potential security incidents. Utilising behavioral analysis and threat intelligence, EDR tools can detect anomalies that traditional security measures might overlook.
