How Does an MDR Protect Endpoints?

Endpoints are the ends within any network, people looking to interact with the network using a device. These devices are computers, servers, smartphones, laptops, workstations or tablets. These endpoints are openings to the world on the other side, through the traffic generated.

This traffic includes web searches, file saves, downloads, and email exchanges. So, if you are an organization and this traffic is directly related to your organization’s data, it needs to be guarded, and SynchroNet can help you with that. 

AVs working with EDRs

Of course, antivirus applications were the top choice in the past to guard these endpoints against any malicious cyber attacks. But with the ever-increasing number of these attacks, AVs have become obsolete on their own. And to their help came the EDRs.

These EDRs ensure that all endpoints remain secure and that any malicious attacks are prevented even before they happen. These EDRs made real-time continuous monitoring possible, and they do so based on rules and automatic responses and capabilities. 

And Then Come the MDRs

EDRs work pretty effectively with AVs, but what will happen if the problem escalates? You need assistance from an IT professional who can be part of your staff or from a third party from here. 

IT professionals actively start managing Endpoint Detection and Response. Managed Detection and Response (MDR) combines AI-based technology and human expertise to discover any threats. They monitor your network security and instantly respond to any problems. 

MDR tends to generate plenty of alerts, especially if combined with EDRs. But it takes time to find out if the threat is severe or minor. This is where the human element comes into play, making MDR more effective.
