Acronis He has launched Acronis Advanced Security + Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR)a new service available at Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud focused on conducting rigorous cybersecurity analysis that will make it easier for managed service providers (MSPs) and enterprises to comprehensively protect their data.
Acronis EDR incorporates new functionalities such as artificial intelligence and automation, which will reduce complexity and workflows in threat detection. And it is that according to the estimates presented by the company last November, 2023 will be a year in which the damages derived from ransomware cause worldwide losses for an amount greater than 30,000 million dollars.
Acronis Research Vice President, Candid Wüestis aware that zero-day exploits represent 80% of security breachesso a quick, effective and simple action will be essential as advanced security method.
The latest advances that have been experienced in terms of EDR technology guarantee the analysis Detailed and effective monitoring of changes in threatsreducing response times and constantly improving the business model throughout the entire business structure.
This is undoubtedly a market opportunity that the company has been able to see with the launch of Acronis EDR, since instead of working with an external provider, it has been able to strengthen its general security offer with the creation of your own EDR platform.
Significant recuperative power
There are more and more endpoints and cyberthreats that affect companies of all kinds, so EDR becomes the fundamental tool for protect data and offer an efficient response. With Acronis EDR you can manage Acronis Cyber Protect endpoints and endpoint security to minimize response times and keep your customers safe and secure.
Unlike other EDR tools, Acronis ensures that MSPs do not have to undertake expensive and time-consuming processesbut it is simple to implement by following the security standards established by the industry such as the NIST cybersecurity framework and the correlation with the MITER ATT&CK frame®.
The guarantees it offers
Acronis EDR provides its users with rapid evaluation power, obtaining rigorous information about the procedure followed by the attacker, the damage it has caused and how the attack has spread. In addition, it provides a optimized incident analysisthat is, prioritizing security incidents and possible attacks without relying on expensive processes carried out by experts.
It also provides a integrated security solution with backup and recovery, which, as we have said before, minimizes downtime in case of potential threats. Similarly, Acronis EDR provides a complete cyber protection solution in a single agentIn other words, it facilitates management and scalability and eliminates the costs and security gaps typical of multipoint solutions from different providers.
This new simplified EDR solution for MSPs is a plus for the company’s cyber defense strategies. are implanted built-in response functions (such as targeted reversals per click attack), the ability to investigate, correct, recover and close security gaps through the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud platform and perform a interpretation of events using machine learning according to the categories of MITRE ATT&CK.
Intel’s plus value
Similarly, Acronis EDR is linked to the Intel Threat Detection Technology (TDT)an efficient system housed in a chip architecture capable of detecting fileless and memory-present malware attacks.
According to a threat hunting report published by CrowdStrike 2022, fileless attacks account for 71% of malware attacks. By downloading the memory scan from CPU to GPU, users will be able to continue working as they advance scanning technology. Thus, it is possible to prevent the malware from spreading to the entire system.
