Fostering Business Resilience via security consolidation with Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

As organizations embrace digital technologies to further their business goals adversaries are taking advantage of an expanded attack surface. Overburdened security teams need to be able to respond to the increased risk associated with adoption of cloud, work from home, and threat actor group collaboration. To overcome this increased complexity what Security teams require is a simplified, integrated approach to visibility, detection and response.

Better visibility into IT processes such as application development with DevOps, enhanced capability for Threat Monitoring and Threat Hunting in the SOC, and Incident Response post breach all require a holistic, platform capability in order to be effective. An Extended Detection and Response capability enables a framework that that consolidates data, logs and telemetry, utilizes Machine Learning and AI modeling for detection efficacy and integrates with tooling to orchestrate responses across the security landscape ensuring a more resilient infrastructure.
