Endpoint security is evolving. While it continues to be a cornerstone of the modern security stack, the increasing complexity of the threat landscape means we can no longer depend on next-gen antivirus (NGAV) or EDR alone to protect against sophisticated attacks.

Endpoint attacks are common and a frequently used entry point for attackers to move laterally to other valuable network assets. Therefore, endpoint security must work seamlessly with other security controls, including identity, network, and email to defend against attacks. Cross-control detection and response (XDR) is emerging to provide a more holistic and effective approach to threat response. And endpoint security plays a pivotal role in XDRs ability to deliver simplicity, visibility and efficiency to SecOps teams.

Join Dave Gruber, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), along with Cisco security experts Gedeon Hombrebueno and Eric Howard, as they lay out the path from EDR to XDR to protect the modern enterprise.
