In a world where cybersecurity threats are rapidly evolving, it’s crucial for organisations to keep pace with advanced security measures. At the I.T. Team, we are dedicated to providing our clients with the most effective and sophisticated protection. Our latest partnership, with Huntress, marks a significant step in this commitment.

MDR and EDR Simplified

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) are becoming essential components in modern cybersecurity strategies.

If your IT environment is a traditional building – antivirus software, and other standard security measures, function like the building’s locks and security gates – attempting to prevent and deter an attacker from accessing your building. EDR and MDR together, are comparable to the building’s internal security system, equipped with cameras and security personnel, vigilant for any suspicious activities inside. This ensures rapid identification and response to threats that get past the initial defenses.

MDR and EDR in more detail

MDR focuses on safeguarding Microsoft 365 tenancies/environments, actively monitoring, detecting, and responding to threats within these ecosystems. EDR targets the protection of endpoint devices. This layer of security is key in monitoring and responding swiftly to threats to your users’ devices and the data within. Together, MDR and EDR offer a complete security solution ensuring quick action against any threats. This makes sure that your organisation is well-guarded against the most common cybersecurity risks.
