Why You Need XDR in Today’s Threat Landscape

It is well-known that data breaches cause some of the most significant harm to organizations.

If an attacker gets through your defenses, your company may risk:

  • Financial losses
  • Disrupted operations
  • Damaged reputation

When your data and many of your assets are on the line, you don’t  want to depend on complicated, inefficient, and outdated security solutions.

To keep up with modern cyber threats, organizations are adopting extended detection and response (XDR) as a key security methodology. With XDR, your organization can improve its cyber resilience by:

  • Integrating with existing tools
  • Defending against sophisticated threats
  • Preventing downtime
  • Quickly responding to any attacks

By integrating security data across all of your systems and tools, XDR can help you detect threats across endpoints, networks, and cloud services. Increased visibility can provide you with comprehensive threat intelligence, robust enough to counter any threats you might encounter.

 

Integrate with Pre-Existing Tools

To protect your business, incorporate every tool at your disposal into your cybersecurity arsenal.

Comprehensive security operations can already be prohibitively expensive. Don’t waste even more money by buying solutions that don’t actually solve your problems. Instead, invest in configuring your current tools to best improve your security posture.

By incorporating all of your pre-existing tools into your XDR solution, you can ensure that your security team can truly get the full picture of any threat and develop the best remediation strategy to protect your business.

 

Defend Against Sophisticated Threats

Old solutions are not enough anymore.

Cybercriminals are using a much wider array of tactics than you’ve dealt with previously. In fact, attacks are shifting towards disruption of services and destabilizing continuity across cloud providers and even infrastructure. To keep up, your risk mitigation strategy must account for all possible threat vectors.

Adopt new policies and methodology that are robust enough to fight even the most sophisticated attacks.

 

Prevent Downtime

Given the increased cyber risk to private companies, your business could face major financial losses from downtime caused by data breaches.

A recent IBM report found that in 2021, the average cost of a data breach was more than $1.5 million. Most of those losses are from disruptions to business activities because of outages to digital systems. By implementing automated threat remediation into your security stack, you can introduce specific workflows to mitigate any data breaches and prevent or minimize resulting downtime.

 

Quickly Respond to Attacks

Legacy security solutions could be putting your business assets in danger. 

Traditional endpoint detection and response (EDR) or security information and event management (SIEM) systems are too slow at detecting or remediating threats. In 2021, the average time to detect and resolve a threat was 287 days. And those metrics are only creeping up year after year.

With XDR, you can automate and optimize a lot of your security architecture. Save time for your security staff and respond to threats in real time.

As cyber threats grow more common and complex, your organization has to adopt the robust security strategies available.
