XDR (extended detection and response) is a security technology that unites multiple security systems. Organizations are transitioning from traditional systems such as EDR and SIEM to XDR. It can detect threats quickly by automatically collecting information from across the IT environment i.e endpoints, servers, email, and social media messages.
Attacks usually occur in the borders between security silos. Each silo may be adequately protected by a security solution, XDR connects silos with a unified threat identification and response strategy. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of XDR.
- Centralized monitoring and management – XDR provides a single solution for security incidents happening across the corporate network and workloads. Consistent security rules can be implemented in both the cloud and on-premises.
- Increased productivity – XDR eliminates the need to manually switch between multiple dashboards to collect security data. This allows developers to easily detect and respond to security threats.
- Unified visibility – XDR integrates visibility across endpoints, cloud infrastructure, network traffic, etc. This allows security analysts to understand security incidents without having to use other platforms.
- Low Total Cost of Ownership – XDR provides a fully integrated network security platform. This eventually reduces the costs associated with purchasing, configuring, and integrating multiple solutions.
