How to find the best EDR approach for your organization

As every IT professional knows, there are no solutions capable of stopping 100 percent of threats. Thats why endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions exist to deal with the advanced threats that manage to get through. Though relatively new, EDR is maturing and evolving quickly as vendors work to protect endpoints against an equally fast-moving threat landscape.

Organizations should have EDR as part of their endpoint protection strategy, however, treating EDR as an add-on may not be the best approach. Join CrowdStrike Product Director Con Mallon for a webcast, The Maturing of Endpoint Detection and Response: Choosing the Right Solution as they discuss the role of EDR in comprehensive endpoint protection and how it has evolved since its inception. Youll also learn about various approaches to EDR and receive guidance on how you can implement effective EDR based on your organizations resources and the threats you face.

Attend this webcast to:

  • Understand the role of EDR as part of an overall endpoint protection strategy.
  • Gain insight into the evolution of EDR techniques and technologies and current approaches to EDR.
  • Learn how CrowdStrike can help your organization implement and mature its EDR capabilities and practices.
