Better Together: Illumio Endpoint and EDR
As threat actors devise new methods to attack organizations, the importance of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) has never been greater. Sophisticated threat actors leverage a combination of zero-day exploits, supply chain attacks, and social engineering tactics to launch their attacks, making them notoriously challenging to detect.
Modern security tools rely on AI and ML to quickly adapt to new attack patterns, but it still takes time to adapt to new zero-day exploits – time you might not have. Best case scenario, detection takes seconds or minutes, but in reality, it can take days, weeks, and even months. According to a recent IBM report, the average time to identify and contain a data breach is a stunning 277 days.
Even with constant improvement in detection capabilities, attackers still find new ways around them. At any time, a breach can circumvent these defenses. The main question at this point is, what is the impact of that breach?
