Network detection and response
Network detection and response definition
Network detection and response (NDR) refers to a category of measures in cybersecurity, designed to identify threats on computer networks. NDR tools typically use advanced analytics and machine learning algorithms to identify abnormal network behavior and detect security threats in real-time.
Network detection and response benefits
- Threat detection. NDR tools can detect and identify threats on the network, such as malware, ransomware, and other types of cyberattacks.
- Incident response. NDR solutions provide real-time alerts and detailed information about the threats and help organizations respond to security incidents.
- Forensic analysis. NDR can provide detailed information about the attack including the source of the attack, the systems affected, and the data accessed.
- Compliance reporting. NDR helps organizations meet compliance requirements by providing detailed reports on network activity and security incidents.
- Network visibility. NDR allows organizations to identify potential security risks and improve network performance.
How does network detection and response work
- NDR solutions establish a baseline of normal network behavior using machine learning algorithms.
- NDR solutions analyze network traffic in real-time to detect and respond to security threats. These tools use signature-based detection, behavioral analysis, and machine learning algorithms to identify abnormal network behavior and potential threats.
- Behavioral analysis is used to identify deviations from the baseline that may indicate a security threat.
- When a potential threat is detected, the NDR solution generates an alert, which can be escalated to security analysts for further investigation.
