Extended Detection and Response (XDR) — The Must-Have Security Tool in a Digital-First World
These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Boston and Santa Clara in March 2022.
Security operations center (SOC) analysts are taxed to meet the demands of an expanding network surface, investigating alerts, a motivated adversary, and changing tools and tactics used to find indicators of compromise. The extended detection and response (XDR) cybersecurity software stack could be the panacea that brings in telemetry from endpoint, logs, web/email, and threat intelligence on one dashboard. The open questions remain about what else should go onto the stack, if best-of-breed point products can be integrated successfully, and what can be done within compliance frameworks.
