Every day last year, 2,803,036 data records were lost or stolen as a result of a data breach and research indicates that the numbers are climbing at an alarming rate. Data breaches totaled 1,540 last year, up 46% from the previous year.1 Most security-conscious organizations are quickly coming to the realisation that traditional set-and-forget endpoint solutions are ill-equipped to handle the daily barrage of zero-day and advanced targeted attacks (ATAs).
Security teams need uninterrupted visibility into endpoint activity, rather than just alerts from security products after something has already gone wrong. Endpoint detection and response (EDR) is an indispensable supplement to current defenses. As Gartner points out, "Organisations investing in EDR tools are purposefully moving from an 'incident response' mentality to one of 'continuous monitoring' in search of incidents that they know are constantly occurring."
