The cybersecurity market has sought to meet the need for tools that can identify advanced, sophisticated attacks, allowing enterprises to investigate what occurred, track, get to the root cause, and remediate affected endpoints. These tools fall under labels such as “next-gen antivirus” (NGAV), “endpoint protection platforms” (EPP), and “endpoint detection and response” (EDR), each of which now frequently encompasses overlapping capabilities. Not only does this make it confusing to know where to invest, but none of these approaches has proven to actually deliver the security outcomes enterprises need. If EPP is not delivering prevention and EDR is not detecting attacks, nothing is delivering the response.
In this paper, we’ll take a look at the specific capabilities companies need to protect their endpoints against modern threats. We’ll also examine scalable strategies for deploying these capabilities to optimize SecOps workflows and security outcomes, both now and in the future.
