MANAGED ENDPOINT DETECTION & RESPONSE
situational awareness, operationalized
Do your workstation anti-virus solutions prohibit, detect AND respond? Does your organization's AV solution monitor for unusual behaviors that aren't necessarily accompanied by malware, but perhaps indicative of a breach? Where your A/V solution falls short, do you have a plan and solution to pick up the slack?
what is Managed endpoint detection & response (Edr) and why do i need it?
Many organizations lack the support to continuously monitor the security of their network. Managed EDR is a great place to start. An endpoint includes laptops, desktops, and servers. Endpoints are usually used by end users which can increase the risk of potential malware. Unlike traditional anti-virus solutions which monitor for static code, managed EDR monitors for suspicious activity and "learns" what behaviors are expected and what are anomalous. Couple this next-gen platform along with our experienced analysts helping to manage post-breach responses 24/7/365, your endpoint security becomes exponentially more effective and timely, prohibiting minor events from becoming a major incident.
Intelligence-Driven Managed EDR from Shadowscape
When coupled with our intelligence services, our Managed EDR solution is "supercharged", allowing our analysts to know exactly how to proactively configure your defense posture, informed by ongoing analyses of your coverage gaps, vulnerabilities and the most likely threats. Additionally, our analysts are able to provide unparalleled context into incident response and threat hunting operations, by knowing the most likely avenue of approach, further expediting the response process.

Response time is critical. Let us provide 24x7 detection and response services to ensure your threats are shut down in real time
our Managed EDR solution
Endpoints are typically either the first line of defense or first vulnerability to be compromised providing attackers with further access to the network. Shadowscape's Next-Gen Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution goes beyond Anti-Virus capabilities by providing the ability to prevent, detect, respond and hunt all within one endpoint platform. Our adoption of the SentinelOneTM platform, allows for access to monitoring a vast number of data points such as CPU and Memory utilization, process lists, network connections and services that are launched with or without an executable.
Our EDR platform expands functionality via API. This allows for further orchestration through Security Orchestration and Automated Response (SOAR) platforms, Threat Intelligence Platforms (TIPs), and network devices to automatically alert to any indicators of compromise. Our analysts will work to tune and curate your network defense solutions to maximum efficiency.
Our Managed EDR Service additionally:
Filters out false positives
Alerts our team when relevant threats are detected
Operates as an extension of your team
Provides executive-level reporting
Ensures security events are investigated, triaged, and remediated by analysts
Leverage our experienced team to investigate potential threat activity that may evade initial detection and alerting.
Reduces your attack surface
Next-Gen endpoint security uses static AI to prevent attacks in real time without the false positives, rendering traditional AV obsolete.
Detection, Response and Remediation
Depend on Managed EDR and the platform's behavioral AI to hastily respond and remediate endpoint incidents to include fileless and even 0-day attacks, limiting further network compromise.
Rollback and Restoration
Complete rollback and selective restoration of malicious artifacts or encrypted files from ransomware (eliminating the need to reimage).
Advanced monitoring of endpoints allow for analysts to hunt native remote shell, memory dumps and pre-indexed forensic context all within our managed EDR platform of choice.
Unlike tools that only monitor for known threats, EDR can help you detect suspicious activities that may indicate an unknown threat type.
What's this difference between EDR and traditional Anti-Virus (AV) solutions?
With all these methods of detection, antivirus can be effective at detecting malware on the endpoint. The issues with standard anti-virus is the reaction to potential malware is very limited. The solutions will automatically quarantine executables but that is about it. Another solution that brings all of this and more to endpoint protection, Endpoint Detection and Response.
There a quite a few different tools out there for endpoint protection and before investing you need to understand some key differences between two key tools, antivirus and endpoint detection and response. Antivirus is a detection engine that is installed on endpoints looking for malicious software. It uses a few different techniques for detection including signatures, heuristics, and behavioral patterns. These put together can help speed up detection of malware while things are executed and installed.
Traditional Anti-Virus (AV) drawbacks
system resource drain
Traditional AV solutions are taxing on the CPU, Network and Hard Drive. Further, they rely heavily on signature or heuristic based analysis.
no behavior detection
In 2018, 93% of malware observed was polymorphic, which means it has the ability to dynamically change it's code, rendering signature based detection next to useless.
Many attacks are fileless, meaning there's no malware associated with the attack. Odd processes, network connections and services that are started might indicate malicious insider activity as well as an external attack.
lack of reacting capability
Typical endpoint solutions are able to quarantine but that's about it. That's assuming that an attack is malware based and there is a file to be quarantined.
