Help prevent cyberattacks before they threaten your customers’ networks

The best way to protect your customers is to try to prevent cyberattacks from occurring in the first place. N-able Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is designed to help you detect possible threats and respond to them before they affect your customers’ networks.

N-able EDR software offers a number of important capabilities, including:

  • A signatureless approach so you don’t have to wait for daily definition updates and face a gap in coverage
  • Continuous, near real-time file analysis, which eliminates the need for standard time-intensive recurring scans
  • Protection even when an endpoint is offline

Detect suspicious activity fast and act before customer networks are infiltrated

Cyberthreats constantly evolve. No matter the steps you take to prevent them, there’s a chance new threats might get through your first layer of defense.

N-able EDR allows you to quickly detect potential threat activity. The tool uses multiple behavioral AI engines to identify threats and determine if a response is needed.

It also helps MSPs understand the threat information needed to protect customers effectively. It does this through:

  • Near real-time alerts to notify you when a threat is detected or neutralized
  • An intuitive dashboard that lets you view threat information at a glance, with links to key remediation actions
  • Forensic information and raw data reports
  • Executive insights and key findings

Respond to attacks quickly with automatic responses

With an endpoint detection and response tool that can act autonomously, you can remediate threats much faster—which translates into better protection for your customers.

To help ensure these automated responses are effective and appropriate for any given threat, N-able EDR software comes with a range of capabilities that help guide its autonomous responses. These include:

  • The ability to tailor protection policies per customer—this means allowing/blocking USB or endpoint traffic and specifying the best automated response
  • The option to choose from several preferred recovery options after an attack
  • Enhanced quarantine options that let you disconnect the compromised endpoint from the network before it can spread further damage
  • Automatic rollback that contains and neutralizes attacks by replacing compromised files with the last known healthy version so customers can get back to work quickly

Deploy, configure, and monitor from one consolidated dashboard

With N-able EDR integrated in N-able N-central®, you can quickly roll out and configure the software to get started.

From a single dashboard, you can:

  • Use N-able N-central rules to automate how EDR is deployed and updated for Windows and macOS devices
  • Easily configure EDR policies, exclusions, and more
  • Get advanced threat detection, analyze active threats, and remediate faster from a centralized console
  • Manage EDR licenses with the N-central license-usage report
  • Leverage PSA workflows to manage EDR alerts

Frequently Asked Questions

What is endpoint security?

What is endpoint security?

Endpoint security is an information security approach that protects a network by focusing on the devices—or endpoints—connected to that network. To maintain endpoint security, software is downloaded onto endpoints and network servers. This software monitors each endpoint for potential attacks, including monitoring device status, software, activities, authentication, and authorization.

How does an EDR security solution work?

How does an EDR security solution work?

EDR is made up of three main elements—threat prevention, threat detection, and threat response. These elements come together to help protect you and your MSP customers.

To prevent, detect, and respond to threats, EDR security solutions install sensors on your network’s endpoints. These sensors gather information about endpoint behavior. Built-in advanced analytics help identify anomalies in the data so your MSP can be alerted about any suspicious behavior.

EDR solutions can also respond autonomously to detected threats. If an EDR solution identifies suspicious activity, it can automatically act to block the source of the activity and quarantine the device or file to help prevent the possible attack from spreading to the rest of the network. Autonomous rollback can help the customer get back to work quickly after an attack.

Why are EDR solutions important?

Why are EDR solutions important?

EDR solutions are critical for protecting your MSP customers and helping keep their networks secure. Cyberthreats are continuously changing, which means that legacy antivirus solutions and network firewalls are becoming insufficient.

Because EDR solutions are constantly learning about your endpoints by collecting and analyzing data, they can defend against even unknown or “zero-day” threats. EDR features like auto-quarantine and auto-rollback can also give MSPs (and their customers) peace of mind. Their ability to respond to threats autonomously also means that MSPs can rapidly mitigate detected threats without adding more work to their plate.

How is endpoint detection and response different from antivirus software?

How is endpoint detection and response different from antivirus software?

Endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions are a type of endpoint security software. An EDR solution helps you lock down and secure systems at the endpoint level, helping protect both those endpoints and the wider network against cybercriminals. EDR tools are often compared to standard antivirus solutions, but in reality they offer a range of capabilities that are not typically included in antivirus tools. Specifically, they use artificial intelligence and machine learning to track possible threats and act on your behalf to address them, delivering results that are both fast and accurate.
