Extended detection and response (XDR) is everywhere these days, but what is it exactly, and why would you want to leverage an XDR platform? In simple terms, XDR is a security advancement designed to help organizations supercharge threat detection and response – and elevate the efficiency and effectiveness of their security program.
Some of the biggest challenges an XDR platform can address include:
An XDR platform combines automated threat detection and response with data enrichment and correlation across endpoints, networks and cloud assets. Unlike siloed security tools, XDR optimizes visibility across your entire attack surface and increases security efficiency by reducing response time and decreasing threat actors’ window of opportunity.
The benefits of implementing an XDR platform are many, including:
These benefits point toward outcomes that security and IT organizations are always working toward: fast, effective threat detection and the ability to address threats in real time.
In this brief video, we break down what XDR is and how it works. You’ll learn:
