Managed EPP vs EDR

by | Nov 27, 2022

Today, the Endpoint security industry is still predominantly divided by two product classes, EPP and EDR. Traditional anti-malware scanning is covered by EPP (Endpoint Protection Platform), while EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) includes some more advanced capabilities such as detecting and investigating security incidents and the ability to correct endpoints to the pre-infection state. It is obvious to security practitioners that full endpoint security requires both EPP and EDR capabilities. As a result, the market is moving to the Next Generation Endpoint Security, a unified, more complete solution.

What is an EPP?

The Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) is an integrated safety solution designed to detect and block threats at the device level. This typically involves anti-virus, anti-malware, data encryption, personal firewalls, intrusion prevention (IPS), and data loss prevention (DLP).
Traditional EPP is fundamentally protective, and most of its techniques are signature-based, detecting threats based on existing file signatures for newly discovered threats. However, the latest EPP solutions have evolved to utilize a wider range of techniques for detection.

What is EDR?

Cybersecurity systems that integrate elements of next-gen antivirus with additional tools to provide real-time anomaly detection and alerting, forensic analysis, and endpoint remediation capabilities are Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) systems.
EDR improves threat awareness outside the reach of EPPs by documenting every file execution and alteration, registry update, network link, and binary execution across the endpoints of an organisation.


In general, an EPP solution serves as the frontline protection of an endpoint, just the same as antivirus software does for viruses.
EDR solutions, on the other hand, are designed to deal with risks that have not been identified by the EPP software. This could include new strains of malware, newly discovered zero-day exploits, and other vulnerabilities not yet included in the database of the EPP threat.

Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP)Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
A first-line defence mechanism that prevents threatsAssumes a breach has already occurred and helps investigate and contain it
Does not require active supervisionUsed actively by security staff to respond to incidents
Passive threat preventionActive threat detection
Does not provide visibility into activity on the endpointHelps security teams aggregate event data from endpoints across the enterprise
Able to prevent known threats and some unknown threatsEnables immediate response to threats that EPP could not detect
Focused on protecting each endpoint in isolationProvides data and context for attacks spanning multiple endpoints

What is Managed EPP/EDR?

Managed EPP/EDR is a centrally managed software option that protects against virus threats on all computers in your business. Because it automatically installs applications, the workers do not need to upgrade their computers on their own or search them. Without requiring intervention from your workers, viruses, and malware detected by this program are automatically quarantined. At all times, everyone in the company has the most up-to-date models. The “managed” portion of managed EPP/EDR ensures that Teceze updates your EPP/EDR programs and tracks the health and safety of your network in real-time. That means you and your employees can concentrate on your business objectives, understanding that your network is constantly being monitored by others.
