XDR: Extended Detection and Response

Extended detection & response (XDR) has emerged in the wake of a need to detect, investigate and respond to threats across all threat vectors in a company’s infrastructure (network, endpoint and cloud) rather than just one.

Dive into this white paper to learn about XDR and how it uses integration and orchestration as defense as well as:

  • How XDR compares to existing detection & response technologies
  • 3 detection & response requirements
  • Use cases for XDR
  • And more

  • EPR: Testing the top 10 products

    AV-Comparatives’ Endpoint Prevention and Response Test is a comprehensive test of EPR products – the 10 products in this test were subjected to 50 separate targeted attack scenarios, which used a variety of different techniques.

    This report includes the results of the tests, showing at which stage (if any) each product provided active or passive response to each threat. Read on to explore how all these products stack up.

  • The essential guide to XDR

    Every second matters when responding to an attack. Siloed security tools slow down investigations, resulting in long dwell times and missed threats. Extended detection and response (XDR) changes everything by breaking down security silos.

    Investing in XDR today can protect you against tomorrow’s threats. Read The Essential Guide to XDR to learn:

    • What XDR is and is not
    • Advantages over legacy detection and response tools
    • What capabilities to look for when evaluating XDR solutions
    • How XDR can help simplify and improve your security operations

    See why XDR has emerged as a market category that integrates network, cloud, and endpoint data to help you detect and eliminate threats before the damage is done.
