Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Efficacy Assessment

JUMPSEC’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) efficacy assessments inform data-driven security decisions that enable you to cut through the cyber-jargon and choose a partner that’s right for your business.

The EDR Challenge

The Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) marketplace is awash with tooling that automates the analysis of endpoint detection providers. Many leverage frameworks such as MITRE ATT&CK to dictate the exercise, simulating a large quantity of offensive actions for each section of the framework, deeming the greatest overall score the most effective. This focus on quantitative analysis is limited.

While more actions may appear to offer the greatest coverage, evaluating a solution against an exhaustive range of generic tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) does not enable the accurate analysis of the solution’s efficacy in a real-world attack scenario. This approach often results in multiple providers achieving the same ‘100%’ coverage score, making it incredibly difficult for buyers to differentiate products in the market and ultimately underestimates the threat faced by motivated attackers.

Make astute data-driven decisions when choosing or validating your detection and response solution.

Taking an approach that transcends generic assessments, JUMPSEC creates realistic and insightful evaluations, finely tailored to your unique technical environment and business needs.

We don’t simply compile and endless list of uncontextualised offensive actions. JUMPSEC provide data and analysis of the threats specifically faced by your business. enabling you to differentiate between the solutions that are vital to your network security and those that are not.

Our approach to EDR assessments

We provide a more authentic and credible assessment of each endpoint detection solution in the context of a realistic simulated attack, comparing like for like across multiple providers to see how they measure up on an equal playing field.

Unlike purely quantitative solutions, JUMPSEC targets nuanced variables such as detection speed, response times, and advanced TTPs tailored to your unique network and technology stack which less sophisticated threat actors would not practically deploy.

Key features of JUMPSEC EDR testing

Investing in an EDR solution is one of the most important decisions for an information security team, taking up a significant portion of your budget and often locking you into a multi-year contract.

At the end of the assessment, you will be in a position to make an informed, data driven decision and choose the best EDR solution for your organisation, not the one with the best marketing or MITRE ATT&CK score.

Solution Overview

JUMPSEC delivers comprehensive reporting with clear analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each solution, assessing technical coverage, service-level support, and business considerations, informed by both qualitative and quantitative analysis.

Attack scenarios are confirmed in a scoping workshop with JUMPSEC consultants to ensure that all of your organisation’s unique business requirements are incorporated into testing and are replicable across all potential EDR solutions.

Typically JUMPSEC recommends assessing your final three potential EDR solutions, however this assessment approach is flexible and can be applied to as many or few solutions as required by your organisation.

JUMPSEC works with its clients to establish a representative testing environment that will enable effective assessment while causing no disruption to your business operations.

You will receive a comprehensive report detailing the results of the assessment at both an executive and technical level, clearly indicating the strengths and weaknesses of the different EDR solutions. JUMPSEC also offers additional project debrief meetings to discuss the results with our consultants and presents the findings to other stakeholders in your organisation.

Customer Success Story...

“Recently we engaged a comprehensive purple team exercise. Working collaboratively with JUMPSEC Blue and Red Teams we were able to make real time improvements to our security posture. This included implementing technical solutions, tweaking detections and finding innovative ways to compromise a system. The advantages working in this collaborative manner through a purple team engagement, far outweigh approaches taken in a traditional PenTest."
