Comodo Will Open Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Product Source Code
Comodo, one of the world’s leaders in cybersecurity, announced that it will open the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) source code and post it on GitHub.
Comodo Group is a US-based software company and SSL certificate provider. Is one of the largest certificate providers offering free personalized email certificates.
“We decided to open source code of our EDR product because we strongly believe that as cyber threats grow, every company should have access to these security capabilities, regardless of budget or product opportunity”, — Alan Knepfer, President and Chief Financial Officer of Comodo, said.
According to Comodo’s president, the company’s competitors offer endpoint protection that doesn’t provide adequate customer protection and then charge additional fees for EDR capability.
This pricing strategy from cybersecurity providers weakens the cybersecurity resources available to enterprises.
“The model of charging for multiple layers of protection is not a healthy business model in the long run. We will put an end to this by opening the source code of the world’s most complex EDR”, – stated Alan Knepfer.
Comodo EDR delivers real-time endpoint protection based on threat detection and response strategy. When the EDR code becomes publicly available, IT teams can identify attacks with accurate root cause analysis for successful recovery.
It is a sophisticated endpoint agent that uses adaptive event modeling and allows sending logs to an elastic database and connect to visualization and reporting systems such as Kibana.
In addition, a set of Indicators of Compromise (IoC) will be available to everyone, which enable creating and deploying their own IoC in the community. An extensive rule engine for collecting and detecting endpoint events will also be provided.
The company was founded in 1998 in Great Britain by Melih Abdulhayoglu, a native of Turkey. In 2004 she moved to the USA. Became famous for its free firewall, and subsequently other free products. Comodo from Spanish means “convenient”.
Comodo now offers next-generation cybersecurity solutions to protect businesses, schools and governments in today’s risky business environment.
In January 2016, Google discovered that Comodo Internet Security replaced the Chrome web browser with the Comodo browser after installation. Comodo is positioned as a “protected version of Chrome” and their interface is identical.
Let me remind you that recently we discussed that Bitdefender Antivirus Blocked Windows 10 “Patch Tuesday”, and also discussed detection of the fake version of Malwarebytes antivirus.
