Identity Detection and Response (IDR) is a new security category that focuses on protecting credentials, privileges, cloud entitlements, and the systems that manage them across endpoints, Active Directory, and the Cloud through visibility and early detection of attacks targeting identities. Attackers consider enterprise identities as high-value targets and attempt to compromise them early in the attack to access the network and gain privileges to essential production assets. Current identity security focuses on safeguarding privileged credentials in PAM solutions or securing the authentication process with MFA and IAM solutions, but these measures leave gaps that attackers can exploit. While current security solutions like Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Network Detection and Response (NDR), and others provide specific functions for defending the network, they do not focus on identities. EDR focuses on preventing the initial compromise, while XDR and NDR try to detect attacks as they expand from the beachhead. Attacks targeting enterprise identities can evade detection from these security controls, but IDR solutions can bridge these detection gaps to identify such attacks. Join Joseph Salazar from Attivo Networks as he discusses the importance of IDR to modern enterprise security.
