FLOSS EDR solutions
Many organisations are unable to afford enterprise solutions but still have requirements to keep their IT systems secure.
Security must be thought through and designed into a system from the very outset, it is therefore important to know how and why you are going to implement a particular solution.
- What Operating System is being used?
- What is the cost of implementation?
- How do you maintain this solution?
- Is it configurable, can you make use of mulit-engine scanning or a multi-layered approach?
Important: you have to know why you are using a solution which is Open Source, and not Enterprise Open Source. Hayachi Services are proudly vendor neutral, and despite this we advise that it is simply the case that if customer data and jobs (especially your own) depend on security: get it right.
Consider if you have an internal team or external supplier who is a specialist and also has capacity to deploy and maintain an open source EDR.
Is Open Source Security safe?
The short answer is yes, for example many Critical Infrastructure platforms make use of incredibly effective Open Source endpoint and network security.
Think SNORT, ClamAV, and a range of other platforms which Cisco use as the ‘retail’ flavour of their enterprise solutions. Our Partners also contribute to a range of projects with the aim of enhancing security for everyone.
