Platforms that intelligently combine all relevant security data and reveal advanced adversaries are needed by SOCs. Organizations are scrambling to secure increasing numbers of digital assets both inside and outside the traditional network perimeter as adversaries increasingly use sophisticated tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to successfully circumvent and exploit traditional security controls. . .

There are too many disconnected security tools and data sets from too many vendors to overcome lone wolf attacks, hacking groups, nation states, and even potentially malicious insiders. Despite historically low operational stress, security staff are overwhelmed by an ocean of data that results in alert overload, too many false positives, and little data integration with analysis and incident response tools.

XDR solutions offer productivity benefits as well as security benefits for SMBs & enterprise security and risk management leaders.

Let’s take a closer look at What is XDR and how does it work?

By unifying visibility and control across endpoints, networks, and clouds, XDR’s products or capabilities primarily provide enhanced security operations productivity. Security teams that lack resources for more custom-made point solutions can also use XDR to analyse TTPs and other threat vectors to make complex security operations more accessible. With XDR, you can remove the burdensome detection and investigation cycles and move more quickly to a response as a result of threat-centric context.

(XDR) security offers a range of innovative threat detection and response capabilities, including:

  • Targeted attacks detection and response
  • Support for behaviour analysis of users and technologies
  • A combination of locally shared threat intelligence and externally obtained threat intelligence
  • A reduction in the time spent chasing false positives by automatically correlating and confirming alerts
  • Faster, more accurate incident triage based on relevant data
  • Configuration and hardening capabilities centralized, with weighted guidance to assist with prioritizing
  • Integrated analytics
