Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions – SentinelOne

In recent years, cybersecurity threats have become more advanced, and traditional antivirus solutions are no longer enough to protect against sophisticated attacks. As a result, Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions have emerged as a more effective alternative to traditional antivirus solutions. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of using EDR over traditional antivirus solutions, including the pros and cons of each.

Traditional antivirus solutions have been around for decades, and they were once the primary method of protecting endpoints from malware and other threats. Antivirus software relies on signatures to identify known threats, and it works by scanning files on an endpoint for signatures that match known threats. While antivirus solutions are effective at identifying and blocking known threats, they are not as effective at detecting and blocking new and unknown threats.

Pros:

  • Easy to install and use
  • Affordable
  • Effective against known threats

Cons:

  • Limited protection against new and unknown threats
  • Can be resource-intensive, impacting system performance
  • Not effective at identifying and blocking advanced threats

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) EDR solutions take a different approach to endpoint security by continuously monitoring and analysing endpoint activity for signs of malicious activity. 

EDR solutions collect endpoint data and use machine learning and behavioural analysis to detect and respond to threats in real-time. EDR solutions are designed to detect and respond to both known and unknown threats, making them more effective at stopping advanced attacks.

Pros:

  • More effective at detecting and stopping advanced threats
  • Provides real-time visibility into endpoint activity
  • Faster response times to threats
  • Less resource-intensive than traditional antivirus solutions

Cons:

  • More expensive than traditional antivirus solutions
  • May require additional training to use effectively
