Overview

XDR (extended detection and response) is the hot new buzzword in the security industry but so far there isn't a lot of agreement on what defines XDR. The goal makes sense. Extend your detection capabilities across your hybrid network to catch advanced threats like zero days, supply chain attacks, and insider threats, and respond quickly before damage can be done. Join us as we explore the pros and cons of XDR such as, is it realistic that one vendor can offer you all the tools you need for detection and response or will you need to create a strategy to achieve your own extended detection and response ecosystem. 

Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of:

  • How to define what XDR means for your organization 
  • How to create your own XDR strategy
  • Why network data is an essential building block for any XDR ecosystem
