As businesses continue to face a growing number of cyber threats, the need for advanced security measures becomes more important. In this article, we look at SecurityHQ, a managed detection and response (MDR) and endpoint security service that is helping businesses protect their data from threats and hackers. By combining network monitoring, centralized visibility, and automated threat response, SecurityHQ is equipping businesses with the tools they need to defend their data and prevent costly data breaches.
SecurityHQ’s services are accessible via an easy-to-use web-based dashboard, making it simple for users at all levels of the organization to use the solution and see the benefits. In addition to its MDR and endpoint security features, SecurityHQ offers other data protection services, including encryption, data loss prevention, and continuous monitoring. With all these tools in one place, SecurityHQ makes it easy for businesses to protect their data and prevent cyber attacks.
We will discuss both solutions in detail and explain why one may be better suited for your business than the other and how to figure out which solution is best for your business.
WHAT IS ENDPOINT SECURITY?
Endpoint security refers to the security measures that are put in place to protect the data on a system or device, such as a computer or mobile phone. This type of security focuses on preventing malicious activities, such as viruses and malware, that may occur on endpoints. This can be done through a variety of methods, such as installing antivirus software, updating software and operating systems with the latest patches, and using strong passwords for accounts.
Because endpoint devices can pose a threat to networks, endpoint security also includes securing those devices from outside threats. This may include installing firewalls and applying patches and updates as soon as they become available. When it comes to protecting businesses, endpoint security is a crucial part of the equation.
This type of security can be implemented across a company’s entire network, including employee devices and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies. By protecting endpoints, businesses can protect sensitive data and networks from outside threats.
SecurityHQ recently highlighted in their datasheet how businesses can manage their endpoint security more effectively. They recommend advanced threat hunting together with machine learning to ingest millions of EDR sensor data and identify new behaviour and 24/7 SOC analytics to take proactive actions, blocking, isolating and investigating the threats.
BENEFITS OF ENDPOINT SECURITY
Improved security: protecting sensitive data
One of the biggest advantages of endpoint security is that it protects your sensitive data by preventing malicious activities on endpoints. This can be done through a variety of methods, including installing antivirus software, updating software and operating systems with the latest patches, and using strong passwords for accounts.
Improved visibility and response time: protecting data from insider threats
Endpoint security also protects sensitive data from insider threats. This includes monitoring endpoints for suspicious activities, such as attempts to log in to accounts without proper credentials. EDR solutions provide administrators with greater visibility into the endpoints on a given network.
This visibility can alert administrators to the presence of malicious files or processes. As a result, by providing greater visibility, EDR can dramatically improve the speed at which an organization can detect and respond to threats. Thus, improving an organization’s overall security posture.
Reduced risk: helping to prevent network breaches
By detecting threats faster and more effectively, as well as done correctly, EDR solutions can also help prevent network breaches and reduce the risk of successful attacks. This can be done through the use of firewalls, which are designed to block incoming threats from entering the network.
WHAT IS MANAGED DETECTION AND RESPONSE?
Due to the increase and evolution of cybercrime, the issues with solutions, including people, processes & technology, are prominent. SecurityHQ provides round-the-clock monitoring to detect, investigate, notify & respond to incidents & potential threats.
In their datasheet, SecruityHQ shares how they rapidly identify & limit the impact of security threats with security orchestration automation & response tooling.
Managed detection and response (MDR) features a service that provides advanced threat detection, incident response, and remediation services. MDR can be used to detect and respond to advanced threats, including ransomware, zero-day attacks, and cyber-attacks. MDR services typically include a team of cyber security experts that monitor your network for malicious activities.
If a threat is detected, the team will respond by containing the issue and containing the issue as quickly as possible. This may include removing malware, remediating the source of the attack, and restoring the network. These services also include real-time threat intelligence, which can help businesses proactively protect their networks and data from future attacks. Endpoint security is vital as there has been a substantial growth of highly sophisticated Advanced Persistent Threats (APT’s). Therefore, MDR is more important than ever.
BENEFITS OF MANAGED DETECTION AND RESPONSE
Enhanced security monitoring
One of the biggest advantages of MDR is that it provides a more holistic approach to security. Rather than focusing solely on endpoint devices, MDR services also focus on the network.
Faster response time and improved visibility and control
MDR services can also help detect and respond to advanced threats, including ransomware, zero-day attacks, and cyber-attacks. With the right MDR solution, businesses can detect and respond to threats quickly, which can help reduce the impact of the attacks.
Real-time threat intelligence
In addition to detecting and responding to threats, MDR services also include real-time threat intelligence, which can help businesses proactively protect their networks and data from future attacks. This can be done through reports that provide details on the type of threat and how it was detected.
WHAT IS MANAGED MICROSOFT SENTINEL?
Managed Microsoft Sentinel is a managed detection and response solution that provides protection against various threats targeting the network including ransomware, viruses and more. Together with SecurityHQ skills, analytics, and security orchestration, it delivers the highest degree of threat detection and incident response.
