Extended detection and response (XDR) is the natural evolution of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). Since most cyberattacks touch more than just the endpoints, to understand the true scope of an attack requires broad visibility from multiple vectors. EDR is a piece of the puzzle, but it does not provide full visibility into the kill chain.

XDR allows organizations to automate decision making, threat detection and incident response processes to streamline operations, accelerate detection and response times, and reduce false positive alerts.

This eBook explores:

  • The challenges in detection and response that is driving the need for XDR
  • Advantages of implementing XDR
  • How to determine if you need an open or closed XDR for your environment
  • How to evaluate XDR vendors
