EDR (endpoint detection and response) cybersecurity technology that fulfills the need for constant monitoring and response to advanced and complicated threats. It is a subset of endpoint security technology and an essential piece of an optimal security posture.

Not all EDRs work in the same way. Some EDRs perform analysis on the agent while others work more on the backend. This means all types of EDRs have different capabilities and meet different needs as well as different types of network visibility.
