CrowdXDR Alliance Expands to Help Security Teams Identify and Hunt Threats Faster

CrowdStrike is proud to announce that Armis, Cloudflare and ThreatWarrior have joined the open CrowdXDR Alliance. The addition of these industry leaders enhances XDR with telemetry from cloud, network and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.This best-of-platform approach to XDR will help solve real-world productivity challenges that security teams face by empowering them to identify and hunt threats at accelerated speed and scale.

Elastic Security: LimitlessXDR. Unbounded Security.

Elastic Security has introduced the industry’s only free and open Limitless XDR solution. Now, native endpoint security comes on every host, automated detections prioritize the biggest risks, and universal data ingestion and centralized analysis accelerate analyst workflows across triage, investigation, escalation, and response. Join our keynote session to learn what unrestricted data ingestion, visibility, and analysis means for analysts, the impacts that key technology and cloud integrations have on security teams, and what the future with Limitless XDR looks like for organizations worldwide.

What Does Sun Tzu Have to Do with XDR? More Than You Might Think!

Military general and philosopher Sun Tzu once led the largest armies in the world and authored The Art of War, still considered a masterpiece of tactical warfare and very relevant as we wage our battles against evolving cyberattacks. That’s because even though threat intelligence is a relatively new discipline in our cyber defense processes, it has actually been around for more than 2,500 years.

LogSentinel XDR - A Unified Security Monitoring Platform

XDR (eXtended Detection and Response) is a new Gartner category, which, we’ve argued before, is SIEM++, or what next-gen SIEM should have been. This is why we are packaging our latest feature updates into an XDR offering that should greatly improve the detection and response capabilities of any organization, especially mid-market organizations, which gain the most benefit from integrated, easy-to-use platforms. LogSentinel XDR is a unified security monitoring and response platform.

Corelight & Microsoft Defender for IoT: Through an XDR lens

What is the XDR paradox? It’s the hottest term in security but there is no consensus yet on the right definition. Why is that? Many organizations have deployed EDR and are benefiting from it, but also looking to the gaps that EDR can’t address such as unmanaged / compromised devices or network-centric TTPs. Likewise, many vendors of EDR/SIEM products have realized they have the same general workflow (analyze data, present an alert, triage it, etc).

XDR: Demystifying the Hottest Cybersecurity Buzzword

Extended detection and response (XDR) has transpired into a market description that, in my not so humble opinion, proves to be as troublesome as the phrases “next gen” or “machine learning” were from 2016 to 2020. I’ll quote myself from a popular blog post from my time at Gartner: Naming aside, the one thing that all InfoSec commentators agree on is that XDR is an evolution of the endpoint-centric approach pioneered by legacy security vendors.

XDR marketing is fueling the cybersecurity problem for businesses

If there is one positive we can take from the last sixteen months, it is businesses embracing a more flexible working culture for their employees. Fundamental changes to the traditional nine-to-five working day means that many companies, in part, have already successfully transformed some of their operations to meet the demands of a new hybrid working world that is now very much the norm.

Converging Platforms: How Do XDR, SIEM, and SOAR Compare?

Security information and event management (SIEM), security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR), and the newer extended detection and response (XDR) solutions have become the top choices for organizations wanting a unified view of activity within their IT environments. By combining relevant data into single consoles, XDR, SIEM and SOAR technologies minimize the time analysts spend moving between platforms and make it easier to correlate the data and develop subsequent steps appropriately.
