What is Open XDR?

Open XDR is a vendor-inclusive and flexible approach to extended detection and response (XDR). Never become locked into a single vendor.


Benefits of an Open XDR Platform

Open XDR provides the potential for a best-of-breed security operations experience where SecOps teams can integrate tools as they see fit. It increases efficiency with lower investment and better visibility than any other solution on the market.

Automated Correlation

Open, Extensible Architecture

Comprehensive threat detection that provides better visibility across your entire attack surface by integrating threat information from your existing and future security investments.

Cloud Native

Cloud Native

Modernized security that is cloud-delivered at scale for better visibility, more accurate threat detection, and simplified security operations — all with lower total cost of ownership.

AI-based Detection

Unified Detection

Multiple security tools, vendors and telemetry types are integrated into a single detection and response platform with centralized data collection, correlation, and analysis.


Automated Response

Automated playbooks and integrations accelerate investigations and incident response by automating response actions and other manual tasks.

Costly Incidents

Low Overhead

Lower total licensing costs and reduced tool sprawl save time and money, plus security staff can focus on higher-impact projects and critical incidents.

Exposing Kill Chain

Continuous Optimization

Flexibility to choose best-of-breed tools while optimizing and leveraging telemetry across the entire attack surface for greater efficiency and better security outcomes.


What is Open XDR?

An Interconnected platform

Open XDR acts as an interconnected system.  Unlike native XDR platforms which rely on a single vendor, open XDR platforms integrate extensively across vendors. 

Forrester® describes open XDR, also referred to as hybrid XDR, as “an XDR platform that relies on integrations with third parties for the collection of other forms of telemetry and execution of response actions related to that telemetry.” 

or organizations that have already made significant security investments, there is no need to rip and replace existing solutions. This also ensures flexibility to add solutions that you may require in the future, avoiding vendor lock-in.

A Singular View Across the Enterprise

The open XDR architecture provides a singular view across the enterprise by aggregating relevant telemetry data from all data sources. ​Open XDR integrates disparate tools across your security stack, ingesting and correlating data, and prioritizing the most critical alerts.

With open XDR, you don’t have to rely exclusively on one vendor in your effort to detect and stop the adversary.
