Does implementing a Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) give you any advantages over an Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution?
I've been trying to do research on this, but are struggling to find good sources comparing the two together, or even discussing them within the same context. There seems to be a lot of hype around EDR, but intuitively I would think there would additional advantages in also monitoring traffic before it hits endpoints. Especially considering a scenario where some endpoints within a network doesn't have a EDR-client installed (like IoT devices for example).
Does anyone have some knowledge about this topic? Or know of any good resources I can look into?
