Endpoint Detection and Response For All Your Mobile Devices
With the increase in frequency and cost of cybersecurity breaches, security teams have shifted their focus from protect-the-endpoint to protect-the-data. In addition to blocking malware, your team needs tools to investigate file-less cyberattacks that do not use malware and insider threats. An example is when an attacker uses credentials stolen through a phishing scam to exfiltrate data.
Cyberattacks that result in a data breach rarely occur in a single event. Cyberattackers will work slowly and silently to identify vulnerabilities, steal credentials, insert malicious code like ransomware or exfiltrate data. These steps take place across multiple endpoints, and over many weeks or months.
While many organizations have comprehensive activity monitoring for servers, desktop and laptop computers, what they lack is the same telemetry for iOS, Android and Chrome OS devices. As employees have increased their use of mobile devices for work, attacks on these endpoints have increased.
To be effective at stopping data breaches, security teams need the same comprehensive data for mobile endpoints that they have for servers, desktops and laptops. Because mobile operating systems never permitted kernel access and required apps to operate in isolation, it had been incorrectly assumed that collecting comprehensive telemetry was impossible.
