Webinar: XDR or EDR: How Should Your SOC Choose?

If you have doubts in your organization’s ability to identify and defeat modern attackers, you’re not alone. We’re living in a world where IT infrastructure, attacker trends, and workspace norms are constantly shifting, so it’s especially challenging to build a solid security foundation with tested best practices.

Companies are struggling to prove effective cybersecurity due to a lack of visibility, a shortage of skilled staff, and challenges matching today’s accelerated business pace. 

A foundational security milestone is protecting our global endpoints: the laptops, desktops, and servers that make up the backbone of our corporate environments. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technologies can provide effective threat detection and protection, so why are we now hearing about Extended Detection and Response, or XDR as the latest new trend?
