What is Datto EDR and why are we switching from SentinelOne? Ever since Covid happened, cybercrimes have increased drastically over the past 2 years. Due to the increasing attacks and the costs the business’ takes on during downtime, there is a sense of urgency for small to medium-sized businesses. There are additional safeguards that EDR brings that can help lock down all the endpoints for your business.

SentinelOne is an Antivirus software that is used to prevent, detect and remove malware. The difference between an antivirus software and EDR (Endpoint threat detection and response) is, EDR is an integrated endpoint security solution that has many layers. Each of these layers are monitored continuously for each end-users device. They also collect and record endpoint data and remotely stores the system-level behavior for each endpoint. The EDR agents can then collect analyze the data that was collected from each endpoint and respond to threats that have gotten through the antivirus and continue to detect and report the security team of each threat after.

Datto EDR was created especially for MSP’s to help improve their security while also expanding the protection for small to medium sized businesses. This will help bring the cybersecurity advantage back to the MSP’s.
