Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you're new to cyber security incident response, advanced threat detection, and security compromise and risk assessments, or a seasoned cybersecurity veteran, these Frequently Asked Questions will help you get familiar with Infocyte's Detection and Respose platform.
Reduce risk, achieve and maintain compliance, and optimize security operations.
What is EDR?
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) platforms reduce the time to detect and time to respond to cyber attacks and malware incidents occurring on the endpoint.
EDR platforms are effective at monitoring large volumes of real-time events correlating those events into security incidents, but require a sophisticated administrator and API integration with other tools in order to achieve their full potential.
From a user perspective, EDR solutions are difficult to configure, deploy, and manage. Interpreting intelligence data requires significant effort from security analysts and in many cases, security analysts won’t immediately understand what to do with the data.
What is MDR?
As threats evolve, new vulnerabilities emerge, and the attack landscape becomes increasingly complex, companies of all sizes are struggling to manage their own cybersecurity.
As a result, Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions and MDR providers have emerged. MDR is a managed security service that provides ongoing prevention, detection, and incident response services, monitored and supported by experts—24x7x365. MDR solution providers also include additional services, such as reporting, consulting, and more.
Infocyte’s unique architecture and agentless deployment capabilities make it an ideal platform for delivering cost-effective MDR services.
