Whitepaper: Endpoint Security Survival Guide

by TripwireOct 13, 2016

A proactive cyber security defense is the best strategy for protecting your business against cyber threats. In the past, security approaches have focused on understanding attacks to stop cybercriminals from accessing corporate networks and systems, but this approach is becoming less effective.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is a new, proactive approach that focuses on behavior that indicates an attack is underway rather than just indicators of compromise (IoC). EDR relies on the deployment and active management of key security controls for your business-critical assets. These controls provide crucial information that allows endpoint incidents to be quickly detected, identified, monitored and handled.

This hands-on, practical guide delves into the implementation and maturation of each control. After you read the guide, you should be able to accurately evaluate your organization's implementation of each control and understand what you need to do to improve the efficacy of the controls.
