This category refers to companies that specialize in the production and sale of both security hardware and software.
Endpoint Protection Platform
Also called EPP, a centralized endpoint protection software system that may run anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware, and firewall on your endpoint devices.
Endpoint Detection & Response
Also called EDR, a centralized software that detects active threats or signs of a breach on endpoints, isolates the infected endpoint, and then remediates the threat within the endpoint.
Security hardware refers to physical devices/appliances that “filter” data, which means they review the data for allowed and disallowed parameters.
Security software is a subset of software that can be installed on the network level, host level, or both.
Intrusion Detection Systems and Intrusion Prevention Systems
Intrusion Detection Systems and Intrusion Prevention Systems, or IDS/IPS, are devices or software that monitor traffic and look for abnormal or suspicious instances. If software or hardware is configured exclusively for IDS, it will only be able to alert an admin or user of the attack. However, if a system is setup for IDS/IPS, then it can both detect and attempt to stop an attack.
- IDS/IPS software can be installed on individual computers on a network.
- Networking devices like routers and firewalls often have IDS/IPS systems installed on them as well.
- There are also dedicated IDS/IPS hardware systems and modules that scan entire networks.
Security Orchestration, Automation and Response
Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR), or Security Automation & Orchestration (SAO) are security platforms that collaborate with existing security systems and applications, automating their response to threats and system issues across all security systems applications within the network. These systems take the burden of responding to routine and time-consuming incidents off human analyst, as well as automating tedious processes in the security workflow.
