ESG Whitepaper – Understanding XDR Requirements

ESG research points to a dangerous conclusion: existing threat detection and response strategies aren’t working, leaving organizations in a state of more cyber-risk than they perceive. Why? Security operations for threat detection and response are based on too many tools and manual processes, not to mention an overworked and under-skilled security operations staff. As a result, many firms are scrambling to bridge the threat detection and response gap by increasing budgets and looking for innovative new security technology solutions.

CISOs aren’t alone in recognizing the need for new threat detection and response strategies. In fact, security technology providers are championing a new technology initiative dubbed eXtended Detection and Response (XDR). XDR tools are intended to solve many threat detection and response issues by providing an integrated security architecture, advanced analytics, and simplified operations. Despite this innovation, however, users remain confused about XDR and where it could fit into their security programs.

Just what is XDR and which are the most important XDR requirements? Download this whitepaper to find out.
