Understanding the Key Differences Between FIM and EDR

File integrity monitoring (FIM) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) are two cybersecurity solutions that are often foundational aspects of organizations’ security strategies. EDR is implemented in order to stop known and unknown threats at endpoints, often with advanced functions such as behavioral monitoring and analysis, antivirus protection, and threat response capabilities.

Streamlining Incident Response: How CrowdStrike Falcon EDR integration enhances threat detection

In the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats, staying ahead requires more than just detection; it demands comprehensive correlation and analysis for informed decision-making. Understanding the context surrounding an alert is important to effectively mitigate risk. That's why we're thrilled to announce the integration of CrowdStrike Falcon EDR with Investigator, part of Corelight’s Open NDR Platform.

EDR - The Multi-Tool of Security Defenses

This is Part 8 in my ongoing project to cover 30 cybersecurity topics in 30 weekly blog posts. The full series can be found here. If your organization has computers, and I’m sure it does, then it's likely it has an Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution installed. Since the capabilities of EDR solutions have changed over the years, it’s recommended to re-evaluate the solution’s features periodically to ensure it is up to date.

The Dark Side of EDR: Repurpose EDR as an Offensive Tool

Endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions have become a key component of many enterprise endpoint security strategies, resulting in a forecasted market value close to $17 billion by 2030. This is due in no small part to the increase in remote work following the COVID-19 pandemic, the resulting bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend in which employees use personal devices for work-related activities, and the constant evolution of cyber threats.

CrowdStrike Falcon Wins Best EDR Annual Security Award in SE Labs Evaluations

The CrowdStrike Falcon platform has received the Best Endpoint Detection and Response 2024 Award from SE Labs for the third consecutive year. This award honors CrowdStrike’s leadership in demonstrated detection, prevention and investigation capabilities.

Mobile EDR for Security Professionals by Security Professionals

At Lookout, we’re no stranger to all the app risks, phishing attempts, and vulnerabilities that make mobile devices such appealing targets. Over the years, our researchers have identified 1500 threat families and have exposed some of the most sophisticated threats ever found, including Pegaussu, Dark Caracal, and — most recently — CryptoChameleon.

The Reality of EDR Costs

With EDR, like other security tool types, effective performance always comes at a cost. Even if you use an EDR tool that is open source or free, your organisation will still need to invest time to configure, maintain and operate it on an ongoing basis. Sometimes, as we explain in this blog, these costs can dwarf the initial spend in getting an EDR licence in the first place. But, paying high EDR costs is not the only way to get EDR capabilities.

CrowdStrike Native XDR Now Brings Faster, More Comprehensive Detections to EDR Customers at No Additional Cost

Today’s adversaries are moving faster than ever. With the quickest attacks happening in just 7 minutes, adversaries are compromising endpoints and moving laterally before security teams can respond.1 It’s critical for organizations to have the technology to stay ahead of them.

Dual Defenses: 10 Reasons Why NDR Is Essential Alongside EDR

Over the last few years, the evolution of cybersecurity strategies has seen a significant shift toward a more layered, nuanced, and, in many cases, advanced approach. Among these advancements, Network Detection and Response (NDR) has emerged as a critical component that continues to become more widely recognized and accepted across the industry for its efficacy in bolstering cybersecurity defenses.
