Expanding security threats require an expansive response, but how do you move beyond the endpoint without increasing complexity and risk? All too often, extended detection and response (XDR) is a complex hash of disjointed systems that struggle to plug the growing gaps in your attack surface. In this episode, Senior Product Marketing Manager George Anderson will tell you more about the “X” in XDR. He’ll explain what XDR is, including the distinction between XDR, EDR and MDR – and why you need to know the difference. We’ll discuss what to look out for in a vendor and how to know if a solution measures up. And we’ll explain why open, extensible security platforms hold the key to the future of XDR.
