Endpoint Detection and Protection
Endpoint detection and protection refers to a system for network security management that focuses on network endpoints, or individual devices such as workstations and mobile devices from which a network is accessed. The term also describes specific software packages that address endpoint security. Endpoint detection and response (EDR) is a specific type of security focusing on endpoint devices. It is often described as the use of a central data repository to observe and analyze endpoint vulnerabilities and work toward stronger endpoint threat response.
