Organizations today face increasingly complex security threats. From sophisticated malware to targeted phishing attacks, these threats can compromise sensitive data, disrupt operations and damage an organization’s reputation. As the workforce becomes more distributed and mobile, the traditional network perimeter disappears, making endpoint devices a prime target for attackers.
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is a comprehensive solution that provides robust protection for endpoint devices, helping secure your organization’s data and operations against various threats. With features like Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Threat and Vulnerability Management (TVM), and Next-Generation Protection, it offers a multi-layered defense that can identify and neutralize threats before they cause damage. Its integration with other Microsoft security products enables a unified and coordinated defense strategy that enhances security and simplifies management.
Key features of Microsoft Defender for Endpoint include:
Attack Surface Reduction
Minimizes potential entry points, reducing the risk of an attack. It safeguards devices from Internet-based threats and restricts access to potentially harmful application domains. Extending these capabilities to the operating system level forms a critical component of Web Content Filtering. Used in conjunction with EDR, it offers enhanced visibility into potential threats and enables proactive blocking of identified Indicators of Compromise.
Endpoint Detection and Response
EDR provides rich insights into the state of endpoints in the network, detects advanced threats and responds to them quickly.
Going further than traditional antivirus measures, NGP provides robust protection against sophisticated malware and zero-day exploits, acting as an advanced shield against modern threats.
This component scans your network to identify and inventory all your connected devices. Understanding what’s in your environment is the first step in securing it.
Threat and Vulnerability Management
Provides real-time insights into the overall security posture of endpoints, helping to identify vulnerabilities and recommend actions to remediate them.
