It’s been a tumultuous time when it comes to ransomware and breaches. Extended detection and response (XDR) has become the answer for security teams needing a simpler, more effective way to approach these cybersecurity concerns.
In this report, “Adapt Or Die: XDR Is On A Collision Course With SIEM And SOAR,”...
XDR takes endpoint detection and response to the next level, delivering comprehensive visibility into the entire security ecosystem. Learn how to get the most performance out of XDR, navigate through the noise, and develop a plan to realize proven security capabilities beyond EDR and SIEM with this comprehensive...
Cyber attacks happen — that’s a static fact of today’s cyber-fueled world. What isn’t static is how and where these attacks happen. Opportunities for attackers abound as networks grow more complex and orgs migrate (or come to life) in the cloud. Today’s attackers can spend months hiding in an environment,...
OK, so the trend is away from endpoint detection and response to extended detection and response. What does that even mean, and how can organizations get maximum cybersecurity protection from this shift? Cisco's Brian McMahon shares insight.
