The use case coverage that legacy tools miss.
EXtended Detection and Response (XDR) is one of the least understood of the emerging areas within enterprise security. XDR is used to describe a cloud-based, security incident detection and response platform that collects and correlates data from disparate security components.
While traditional Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technology is an established part of any security operations (SOC), it has limitations. For many enterprises, it cannot absorb all the logs from both cloud and on-premises sources, and it becomes complicated and expensive to tailor the rules and events of interest to the point where indications of compromise are quickly and routinely dealt with — or automated. In other cases, SIEM scope creep has made a once fast, nimble solution slow and unresponsive to the most simple of queries.
XDR provides the missing link between collecting and processing mountains of logs and offering SOC teams quick and simple timelines of attacks that demonstrate risk, end-to-end attack methodologies, and automate case management. All of this is packaged as a cloud-delivered solution offered either standalone or to augment a legacy SIEM deployment.
