How do you future-proof your SOC?
In Frost & Sullivan’s Future-Proofing Security Operations: Harnessing the Power of Extended Detection & Response (XDR) to Advance Security and Business Resilience industry whitepaper, only 25% of security teams have full visibility of their IT environments. And Frost & Sullivan further reports that 33% of organizations are managing 50,001–1,000,000 endpoints.
It all comes down to visibility and XDR.
This comprehensive whitepaper also dives into the security situations of IT environments and XDR. What was once a perimeter-constrained, exclusively on-premise, desktop-run workplace has now transitioned to remote offices with a myriad of devices, deployments, users, locations, and disparate security solutions.
So how do security teams keep up, keep track, and stay ahead with this new cybersecurity reality?
- A holistic XDR solution can deliver far more granular visibility when compared to log-based SIEMs
- XDR achieves this visibility for now and the future, bringing together data from company-owned locations, remote users and IoT devices, and users outside the traditional network, the cloud, and other sources
- This exponential growth of end devices means XDR had to natively integrate with internal and third-party threat intelligence feeds to augment the contextual environments in which they operate.
The Frost & Sullivan whitepaper covers visibility and XDR comprehensively, but one key takeaway:
Organizations should adopt XDR by focusing on three essential areas:
- Improved handling of sophisticated attacks through data enrichment, integration with protection solutions, automated response, and business context visualization.
- Secured remote workforces through the integration, collection, and correlation of endpoint data enhanced with user behavior analysis.
- Unification of security management onto a single platform through the confluence of SIEM, analytics, compliance, and incident detection and response.
For organizations worldwide fortifying their security positions, XDR is playing the lead role; consolidating security management into a single platform while simultaneously delivering superior detection and response capabilities.
