It's Time to Embrace Endpoint Detection and Response

Computer security is a constant battle. Cybersecurity experts and researchers are continually working to thwart attacks, but attackers are finding new ways to exploit unsecured machines just as quickly. As such, traditional tools for identifying and snuffing out malware are no longer sufficient on their own – a better way is needed.  

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) provides a means for business owners needing to protect their networks from malicious software.

How EDR Improves the Paradigm 

 EDR is the next generation of computer protection, providing a full suite of tools to keep your networks up and running, even if machines within your business are infected.

It's not unusual these days to hear about "Ransomware" attacks - where malicious actors gain access to a network through one system and encrypt all that business's files. Once a system is infected, it is easy for malware to traverse a business network looking for additional data and systems to compromise.

Utilizing machine-learning, an EDR system monitors all machines on your network as parts of a whole. If unusual behavior from a particular machine is detected, the EDR software can instantly cut that machine's network connection and begin working to remove the threat, as well as begin searching for the threat on all other systems. This way, there is less danger of malicious software compromising one office computer and then spreading to all the other machines on the network.

If you're concerned about the network security of your business or are looking for a way to harden your network security and protect your files, contact us today regarding our Managed Service Provider services!

Conforming to HIPAA Standards 

It is necessary for businesses to prevent, detect, contain, and correct security violations, as well as to guard against, detect, and report malicious software. Our EDR solution can help businesses meets those requirements by not only actively preventing, detecting, and removing problematic software, but it also rolls back company systems to a point before the attack was carried out. By way of defending against and removing malware that is both known and unknown to the security community, you are not only making your company safer, but your patients as well.

Conforming to PCI Compliance Standards

If your business handles credit card and payment information, PCI compliance is an important part of your security infrastructure. Standards for PCI compliance include digital security standards such as maintaining antivirus software that actively seeks out threats and removes them. Systems must periodically scan, maintain up-to-date definitions, keep a look out for unwarranted changes to files/systems, and have a system for timely detection, among many other requirements. Our EDR solution assists with solving these problems and many more, by providing constant tracking not only of virus definitions, but also unusual behaviors in systems that may indicate a breach.

Conforming to the GLBA's Safeguards Rule

For businesses looking for security software that meets this need, our EDR software is compliant with the Safeguards Rule, which ensures that certain non-public information that your system receives is kept secure and confidential. 

The Details

Our USA-Based EDR solution is SOC2 Type 2 / ISO 27001 Compliant. It is ideal for business owners wanting one of the highest regarded security software packages available, as well as businesses in industries that work to comply with requirements such as PCI DSS 3.2.1 [ 5, 10.8, and 11.5], HIPAA's Security Rule Requirements [§164.308(a)(1), §164.308(a)(5)(ii)(B) and 164.308(a)(6)(ii)], and GLBA compliance under the Safeguards Rule. This software provides protection against viruses, malware, ransomware, and network threats.
