Best Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) Software

Endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools are the newest members of the endpoint security family. They combine elements of both endpoint antivirus and endpoint management solutions to detect, investigate, and remove any malicious software that penetrates a network’s devices. These tools give greater visibility of a system’s overall health including each specific device’s state. Companies use these tools to mitigate endpoint penetrations quickly and prevent data loss, theft, or system failures. They are typically used as a complement to larger security systems such as security information and event management (SIEM), vulnerability management, and incident response tools.

To qualify for inclusion in the Endpoint Detection and Response category, a product must:

  • Alert administrators when devices have been compromised
  • Search data and systems for the presence of malware
  • Possess analytics and anomaly detection features
  • Possess malware removal features
