No longer satisfied with infecting files or systems, adversaries are now intent on crippling entire enterprises. Damaging supply chain, ransomware and wiper attacks are making headline news, impacting not only the organization but their stakeholders too. As threat actors’ approaches and targets change, our approach to detection and response is changing as well.
Extended Detection and Response (XDR) is now widely considered to be the most effective path forward to enable detection and response across the infrastructure, across all attack vectors, across different vendors, and across security technologies that are cloud based and on premises. Delivering on this promise requires ALL tools and ALL teams working in concert, so the “X factor” in an XDR architecture is integration. And this integration must be broad and deep so that organizations can get the most value out of their existing best-of-breed security solutions, including their free, open source tools.
