Imagine your company’s data as a prestigious gala, brimming with priceless information. Just like with priceless artwork, you wouldn’t leave its security to chance.  You’d have a team of trained professionals keeping a watchful eye.

That’s where Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) comes in. Think of Managed EDR as your digital security team, constantly monitoring for any suspicious activity.

Endpoint Security Managed Services

Outsourcing your endpoint security needs, including Endpoint Protection (EPP) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) can free up your internal IT resources to focus on strategic initiatives while ensuring your endpoints are comprehensively protected by experienced security professionals. 

Specifically, Endpoint Detection Managed Services provides a comprehensive and proactive approach. This dedicated security team specifically focuses on managing your endpoint security. This dedicated security team oversees EPP Management, EDR Monitoring, Threat Hunting and Incident Response.

Additionally, you’ll gain access to a team of security professionals with extensive knowledge of the latest threats, security tools and best practices. This expertise of Endpoint Protection Technology ensures your security posture remains up-to-date and effective against evolving threats. 

A Multi-Layered Approach to Endpoint Security

Endpoint protection technologies to secure your business

For companies, a layered approach to endpoint security is key. This means using a combination of different Endpoint Protection Technologies to cover every area. 

Endpoint Protection is the gatekeeper to your devices, focusing on preventing threats from entering devices in the first place. Antivirus and anti-malware are classic examples of EPP. If a threat passes through, EDR serves as the next line of defense by investigating threats and even taking automated actions to stop them. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) continuously monitors devices, also known as endpoints, for suspicious activity and potential threats.

Managing security across numerous devices can be intimidating. A centralized management platform, like IGEL OS, allows for streamlined updates, configurations and threat monitoring for all your endpoints. This also ensures that all devices have the latest security patches and settings applied, minimizing your risks. 

Software vulnerabilities are a prime entry point for attacks. Timely patching of operating systems and applications limit these entry points.

Introducing IGEL OS: A Secure Foundation

Just as important as your security tools is the foundation you build them upon. IGEL OS is a lightweight Linux operating system specifically designed for endpoint security. Here’s some ways it strengthens your security:

Reduced Attack Surface: Unlike traditional operating systems, IGEL OS minimizes the number of programs and features running on the device, reducing potential vulnerabilities. This means organizations can “turn off” any unused features to minimize the number of endpoints. 

Read-Only Mode: By default, IGEL OS operates in a read-only opeerating system, restricting users from accidentally installing malware or making unauthorized changes.

Limited Local Storage: Minimize the risk of data breaches by reducing the amount of sensitive information stored locally on the device and blocking external drives from creating a pathway for exfiltration.
