Why XDR Should Be Consumed as a SaaS Product

Extended Detection and Response (XDR) can provide your organization with holistic risk management across all parts of your IT infrastructure. But to properly implement this methodology and enjoy its benefits, you need to consume XDR as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product. Why? Here are 5 benefits to XDR implementation through a SaaS provider:

  • Improved agility
  • More flexibility
  • Enhanced threat detection and response
  • Less internal staff
  • Lower operational costs.


Security Benefits


Improved Agility

With a SaaS cyber program you can ensure that your business is always up-to-date on the best security practices.

While on-prem security systems are difficult to change, SaaS can quickly adapt with your security needs. Your XDR provider can easily implement new functionality to react to new types of threats, support updates to your internal systems, or integrate with any new tools that you may introduce.


More Flexibility

Integrate your threat detection and remediation program into every part of your business.

XDR relies on full visibility across your company’s entire IT system. On-prem solutions inherently limit what systems, tools, and use cases they support. With SaaS you can integrate your security management with every other tool or service that you use.

Additionally, you can run a SaaS security solution from anywhere. This way your business assets and operations are protected no matter where your employees may be working, without complicated VPNs, firewalls, and intranets.


Enhanced Threat Detection and Response

React to all threats putting your business at risk. With a cloud-based security system, your XDR provider can monitor security alerts 24/7. Thanks to enhanced visibility, you can minimize risk by detecting and responding to threats in real-time.

Additionally, your SaaS provider can update your security software and fix bugs as soon as necessary. This way, your business never has to worry about exposure to threats because of outdated or error-prone installations.


Business Benefits


Less Internal Staff

Leave your security operations to experts.

With on-prem security, your company is responsible for hiring and maintaining IT staff who implement and maintain those cyber systems. When you switch to a SaaS XDR solution, you can delegate those costly and time-consuming operations to external professionals who live and breathe cybersecurity.


Lower Costs

Increase profit margins with fewer operational demands.

Once you switch to a SaaS security provider, you can forget about managing troubleshooting and maintenance. Outsourcing your cyber program will save your company money across the board. With lower total cost of ownership (TCO) you can invest resources into other business objectives.


Final Thoughts

Protecting your business from modern sophisticated threats is hard. Attackers are adapting and adding new techniques to their arsenal every single day.

But you don’t have to handle all of your security operations by yourself. SaaS XDR providers can ease your workload while improving your security with deep subject matter expertise and flexible technology, adapted to suit the unique needs of your business.

Move on from antiquated and bulky on-prem systems and save time and money with a modern SaaS XDR solution instead.
