7 Experts on XDR Was generously sponsored by Anomali.

Cybersecurity has reached an inflection point. A diverse selection of individually effective security tools and an abundance of available threat intelligence data exist, yet the majority of recent breaches were discovered and reported externally through ransomware actors, business partners, and customers.

If incidents like SolarWinds are any indication, our adversaries possess increasing levels of funding, sophistication, and patience. Despite increased regulatory attention and pressure from leadership, as well as mandates from the president’s office, cybersecurity is coming up painfully short, with the mean time to detection (MTTD) measured in weeks, months, or even years.

Extended detection and response (XDR) represents a compelling solution to this problem. Teams can quickly determine the scope of an attack and respond based on historical security telemetry and global intelligence about threat actor tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP). XDR can tip the needle from reactive to proactive, reducing both the cost of incident management and the potential damage of a cyberattack.

This ebook explores core XDR concepts and differentiators. It covers the security challenges facing organizations today and where so many fall short. It describes the critical role of threat intelligence to XDR. Finally, it provides an insight into the key factors to consider when evaluating a prospective XDR platform.
