Whitepaper XDR | Why will eXtended Detection & Response become the new paradigm in cybersecurity?
Today, cyberattacks are an almost daily reality. They are becoming increasingly sophisticated and more persistent, making a mockery of conventional cyber-protection solutions. In response, new tools and techniques are appearing on the cybersecurity market.
eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) is an evolved version of Detection and Response solutions such as EDR. This new approach represents a step forward in the handling of various threats by adding other data sources (networks, files, Cyber Threat Intelligence, etc.) to detect indicators. This aggregation of information within a data collection tool requires the implementation of orchestration functions to correlate events, generate alerts and manage incidents through response and remediation scenarios. The whole package comes together to form a comprehensive solution that provides an overview of the infrastructure, significantly improving decision-making and maintaining optimum levels of security.
In this cybersecurity whitepaper, we describe the various aspects that an organisation needs to consider when implementing an XDR approach or solution that is both secure and trusted. This document is intended for consultants and information systems security managers, to give them an understanding of the goals that XDR solutions must meet to provide optimum protection for organisations.
