What is XDR? The Benefits of Managed XDR for Security

Pune SOC SecurityHQ XDR Service

With countless cyber security services to choose from, it can be difficult to understand exactly what your business needs to maintain a tight security posture and keep up with growing compliance demands. For most, a combination approach will provide the best security, but this can be unwieldly to monitor, with key information lost in a sea of data and alerts. An XDR (Extended Detection and Response) service combines a number of these crucial security tools to provide comprehensive, strategic cyber security across your whole posture and organisation.

Gartner defines an XDR service as a “unified security incident detection and response platform that automatically collects and correlates data from multiple proprietary security components”.

This advanced intelligence telemetry offers security teams the macro insight to effectively guard against incoming threats and proactively lodge an incident response should threat actors breach your defences. 

What is an XDR Service?

An XDR ingests data from a variety of sources, including endpoints, networks, cloud environments and more to provide a cohesive single source of truth, providing enhanced visibility and reducing the time taken to identify and respond to threats.

Once data is collected it’s then correlated into meaningful security insight via a combination of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and expert analysts. This then forms the basis of a threat response, enabling teams to triage, investigate and remediate as required for a cohesive, strategic solution.

The Benefits of a Managed XDR Service

While a standard XDR can provide security teams with the joined-up intelligence required to identify and respond to threats, without the necessary resources to carry out a prompt threat response, this protection can fall down.

With a Managed XDR, or MXDR, the same multi-source security is provided with 24/7 access to a dedicated external support team with the expertise, and critically, the resources, to lodge a timely response and remediate threats as and when they’re identified.

If resourcing and retaining the cyber security talent to keep pace with snowballing threats is proving a challenge for your organisation, outsourcing your security provision to a fully enabled XDR with management capabilities offers an opportunity to utilise niche expertise that is currently almost impossible to hire in-house.
