Overworked security operations teams, the increasing frequency of large-scale ransomware attacks, paired with the shift to a new era of hybrid work, have created growing gaps in cyber security programs. One of the solutions is a new approach to threat detection and response, a key element of defending an organization’s infrastructure and data from damage, unauthorized access and misuse. 

What are the potential and promises of XDR (eXtended Detection and Response) first coined in 2018? How is it any different from Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) or Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)?

Extended Detection and Response is a consolidation of tools and data that provides extended visibility, analysis, and response across networks and clouds in addition to apps and endpoints. XDR is a more sophisticated and advanced progression of endpoint detection and response (EDR) security.

According to, XDR is intended to collect and correlate data across the operating environment, ideally spanning both security and business infrastructure, including email, endpoints, servers, networks and the cloud. With comprehensive visibility, the XDR solution should correlate data with threat intel sources, as well as apply detection and analytics capabilities. 

With XDR fully implemented, security teams can analyze threats and prioritize those most critical to the business. Moreover, by improving visibility, detection and automating low-level tasks, security programs can evolve to a more proactive posture to get ahead of threat actors and establish advanced metrics they can use to measurably improve their security program.
