Why Read This Report

Extended detection and response (XDR) is the evolution of endpoint detection and response (EDR), providing optimized threat detection and response that spans security and business tools. In contrast to legacy SIEM approaches and current security analytics platforms, XDR is grounded in EDR, unifying it with other security tooling to give security analysts visibility, high-efficacy detection, and more-effective correlation, investigation, and response. This report defines XDR; highlights the distinctions between XDR, security analytics platforms, SIEM, and SOAR; showcases XDR from the operator's perspective; and gives actionable recommendations for evaluating and implementing an XDR solution.
