The next generation endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions focus on prevention rather than detection. This means eliminating the risk of malicious activity executing on the endpoint completely (proactive), as opposed to trying to quickly detect an attack after it has happened (reactive).
This new approach doesn’t use human-created file signatures at all. Instead, it uses AI based on machine learning to automatically distinguish good (benign) files or activity from bad (malicious) files or activity based on mathematical risk factors. Once this good/bad classification is made, it’s possible for a machine to decide what to do with these files in real time.
