Why Should Organizations Consider Extended Detection and Response (XDR)?


Over the past few years, there were tons of new players in the XDR market – and every single one (at least among the ones that are actually viable solutions) added or contributed something to the overall conversation as to what the “X” in XDR really means. Despite the plethora of available tools, security incidents continue to increase, and high-profile attacks have enterprise leaders asking how they can prevent their companies from appearing on the 9:00 o’clock news. As security leaders evaluate the vast array of tools available to combat ransomware attacks, endpoint and extended detection and response solutions still stand out as the best defense against emerging threats.  How can an enterprise know which of these tools is the best though?

In a recent research study, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) surveyed IT professionals, information security practitioners, and technology business leaders across all verticals to discover their attitudes and perspectives toward XDR solutions. The primary goal was to use survey responses and third-party interviews to create a comprehensive definition of “What is XDR?” for leaders to use as part of their solution evaluation process. 

Join Christopher Steffen, CISSP, CISA, and vice president of research at EMA, as he shares this definition and reviews the results of this new research report: “Why Should Organizations Consider Extended Detection and Response (XDR)?”
