Real-time endpoint threat detection and response continued
Best practices / advice:
Assess your endpoint security model:
Detection: Your solution should have the ability to detect attacks and advanced threats that evade or disable other defenses.
Analysis: Any technology designed to help identify and classify threats should have built-in automation to analyze and quickly understand attacker behavior, in real time, to manage an effective incident response.
Remediation: The ability to automatically or manually remediate is critical for long-term endpoint security.
Resistance: Technology that is able to automatically defend against bad files or known malware is great, but how your technology holds up against unknown attack methods and malware is the next generation of endpoint challenges. Technology that gets smarter over time in enterprise environments allows dynamic generation of profiles designed to resist specific threats.
