What is Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)?

EDR, also known as endpoint threat detection and response (ETDR), is a comprehensive endpoint security system that combines real-time continuous monitoring and gathering of endpoint data with rules-based automated response and analysis capabilities.

The primary functions of an EDR security system are to:

  1. Monitor and collect activity data from endpoints that could indicate a threat
  2. Analyze this data to identify threat patterns
  3. Automatically respond to identified threats to remove or contain them, and notify security personnel
  4. Forensics and analysis tools to research identified threats and search for suspicious activities

What is Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)?

XDR is designed to make enterprise network security management easier. XDR solutions extend security visibility throughout an organization’s entire infrastructure, including endpoints, cloud infrastructure, mobile devices, and more. This centralized visibility and management simplifies security management and the implementation of consistent security policies across the enterprise.


XDR represents the evolution of detection and response beyond the current point-solution, single-vector approach.

Clearly, endpoint detection and response (EDR) has been enormously valuable. However, despite the depth of its capability, EDR is restricted because it can only detect and respond to threats inside managed endpoints. This limits the scope of threats that can be detected as well as the view of who and what is affected. These restrictions ultimately limit response effectiveness within the SOC.
