What is Network Detection and Response?

Network Detection and Response (NDR) is a burgeoning field of cyber-security that enables organisations to monitor network traffic for malicious actors and suspicious behaviour, and react and respond to the detection of cyber threats to the network. The rise of NDR systems reflects the growing number of systemwide attacks by criminal actors ranging from hackers to nation-states.<br/><br/>

The NDR solution category was established in 2020, renaming what was previously called “network traffic analysis.” The evolution of the category underscores the growing importance of response capabilities, which can include automatic responses such as sending commands to a firewall so it drops suspicious traffic, or manual responses such as threat hunting and incident response.
