Extended detection and response describes a unified security incident detection and response platform that automatically collects and correlates data from multiple proprietary security components. Security and risk management leaders should consider the risks and advantages of an XDR solution.
- Security and risk management leaders are struggling with too many security tools from different vendors with little integration of data or incident response.
- Extended detection and response (XDR) products are beginning to have real value in improving security operations productivity with alert and incident correlation, as well as built-in automation.
- XDR products may be able to reduce the complexity of security configuration and incident response to provide a better security outcome than isolated best-of-breed components.
- XDR products have significant promise, but also carry risks such as vendor lock-in. The XDR market is immature and capabilities vary widely across products from different vendors.
