Hi community professionals,
I am looking for your advice on whether it makes sense to use both an endpoint antivirus and an EDR solution simultaneously? What are the pros and cons of using each one or both simultaneously?
*In terms of products, I've been looking at CrowdStrike Falcon, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, and ESET Endpoint Security.
Thanks for the help!
If you look at a product like SentinelOne, it is both EPP and EDR (and much more...). In that case you only need this single product.You could take a look at this short explanaition on YouTube: EDR? EPP? Both?!? See how to explain SentinelOne in just 2 minutes
The “Antivirus” protection technology is replaced by EDR which does include a modern version of “antivirus” along with other ways of device protection.
Multiple vendors provide EDR: Trend Micro, Cisco, etc.
The more current technology is XDR.
I work as the CIO & Information Manager in the gaming and gambling industry. The company has 650 employees and >30.000 customers.
I'm not able to find a study where Darktrace is compared against Crowdstrike Falcon (or other solutions for endpoint security, e.g. Sentinel One).
Can anyone help and share their insights?

Most of these comparisons are opinions and some tests are done in specific conditions that might not suit or reflect your organization's needs and roadmap. Ultimately, the cost of a mistake is a data breach and not just an audit finding or operational discomfort.
I mention this because there are no viable shortcuts. I suggest you test the solutions thoroughly in your own environment to see what works for you.
The gaming floor is hopefully "air-gapped" and the solution should respect that segregation and still provide great security and visibility. One of the challenges is security updates.
For such an environment you would need comprehensive AI and machine learning. I suggest you look at the difference between IOC and IOA.

Good luck and stay safe!
