Autonomous Endpoint ProtectionDefend Every Endpoint Against Every Type of Attack, at Every Stage in the Threat Lifecycle
Autonomous endpoint protection unifies prevention, detection, and response in a single purpose-built agent powered by machine learning and automation. It provides prevention and detection of attacks across all major vectors, rapid elimination of threats with fully automated, policy-driven response capabilities, and complete visibility into the endpoint environment with full-context, real-time forensics.
Its advanced endpoint detection response provides the perfect solution to the failings of both EDR and EPP through its real-time analysis capabilities; and allows everyone from advanced SOC analysts to novice security teams to automatically remediate threats and defend against advanced attacks. This technology empowers security teams to focus on the alerts that matter and leverage technology to assist in what before was limited to human mandated tasks.
In the case of prevention controls, EDR’s advanced behaviour analytics increases the prevention capabilities and provides the context behind why something is blocked. The labour savings and accuracy of context driven controls result in organisations spending less time tuning a prevention control as well as less time investigating a blocked event. This translates to better prevention capabilities, greater context and a storyline on why a potential threat is stopped.
Too Many Products
We keep adding endpoint agents in an attempt to protect our data. It’s not uncommon to see 6, 8 or more security agents on enterprise boxes.
Too Many Alerts
How you set up and prioritise which alerts to look at and act on is the basis for an effective threat management strategy.
Too Few Staff
Skilled IT staff and security experts are in short supply globally.
Broad Protection Against Diverse Modes of Attacks
Trojans, malware, worms, backdoors, payload-based
Memory-only malware, no-disk-based, indicators
Exploits rooted in Office documents, Adobe files, macros, spear phishing emails
PowerShell, WMI, PowerSpoilt, VBS
Mimikatz, credentials scraping, tokens
Autonomous Endpoint Protection Buyer's Guide
Endpoint security is not new, but what exactly is so different about autonomous endpoint protection? Do you need autonomous protection in addition to antivirus, advanced threat response, endpoint detection and response? This Autonomous Endpoint Protection Buyer’s Guide addresses these questions as well the 6 things you need to know to make the right decision. It also includes evaluation questions to ask autonomous endpoint protection vendors to make sure the products you evaluate meet your requirements.
How It Works
An effective, streamlined security solution combines the tenets of defence-in-depth in a single product – incorporating mechanisms that deal with malware before it executes, while it’s executing, and after it has executed. It also lowers costs and improves efficiency, allowing the business to grow without interruption.
Single agent technology uses a Static AI engine to provide pre-execution protection. The Static AI engine replaces traditional signatures and obviates recurring scans that kill end-user productivity.
Behavioural AI engines track all processes and their inter-relationships regardless of how long they are active. When malicious activities are detected, the agent responds automatically at machine speed. Many Behavioural AI solutions are vector-agnostic – and don’t care whether the threat is file-based malware, scripts, weaponised documents, lateral movement, file-less malware, or even zero-days.
Automated EDR provides rich forensic data and can mitigate threats automatically, perform network isolation, and auto-immunise the endpoints against newly discovered threats. As a final safety measure, many automated EDR solutions can even rollback an endpoint to its pre-infected state.
Benefits and Features
No Dwell Time
Detection and Response is done in real-time. Autonomous endpoint protection technology links all behaviours and indexes all activities into a storyline on the agent, in real-time.
Empowers Security Analysts
Analysts can hunt faster, focusing on what matters, instead of wasting time looking for the needle in the stack.
Malicious attempts are prevented in real-time, reducing overall risk and alert fatigue all too common with other EDR products.
OS and Deployment Diversity
Broadest platform coverage across Windows, Mac and Linux natively cloud-deployed or available on-premise.
