Making the Move to Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

Today, many organizations rely on a collection of disparate security tools to identify and mitigate threats. These siloed security implementations are inherently inefficient and ineffective. Detecting, isolating and remediating security incidents is resource-intensive, timeconsuming and error-prone, and involves multiple platforms and administrative interfaces. To get to the bottom of an issue, security analysts are often forced to manually sift through and piece together volumes of diverse alert and event data generated by different systems.

To make matters worse, today’s sophisticated threat actors know where to look for gaps in security silos. They can slip between defenses and move laterally across the network, flying under the radar for extended periods of time, lying in wait and gathering reconnaissance data for future attacks.
