Typically, we use machine learning features that we developed over the last half a dozen years to build this product, and therefore we're not a signature-based solution. If there are some anomalies that are taking place, generally we can raise an alarm and beyond just raising an alarm, we can provide some other kind of mitigation. We can maybe block communications or sandbox communications or send an alert as another aspect of control or protection.

The primary use would mainly be for intelligent intrusion detection and response. Our biggest customers are two pharmacies and a bank, so it would be applied in the financial and healthcare industries.

If you're looking for a NextGen, Machine Learning & AI-driven Active EDR with automated remediation, that has not been breached and is backed by a one million USD ransomware warranty.  Contact me and I'll provide you with detailed comparisons between SentinelOne, Cylance and Carbon Black, showing how SentinelOne is superior to both Cylance and Carbon Black.  It will also be my pleasure to demonstrate the SentinelOne solution to you. The future of your company's cybersecurity is in your hands.

I work at a tech services company with 5,000 - 10,000+ employees.  We are currently researching EPP and EDR solutions. What are the main differences between EPP and EDR?  Thanks! I appreciate the help.

The biggest difference is time frames. EPP is meant to PREVENT infection. EDR is meant to deal with endpoints once they ARE infected.

EPP is focused on detecting malware, but EDR is focused on logging endpoint an event and this event is used for threat hunting or incident response. So you need advanced security analysts to get the desired effect. EPP and EDR are not a completely separate solution. EDR is a core component of an EPP product. And many EPP vendors add EDR features to their EPP solution.
