Extended Detection and Response (XDR) is a security solution capable of unifying several threat defense tools into a holistic approach.
In its Market Guide for Extended Detection and Response, Gartner defines XDR as “a platform that integrates, correlates and contextualizes data and alerts from multiple security prevention, detection and response components.”
While Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) security focuses on threats on endpoint devices, XDR solutions take a more comprehensive approach beyond endpoint protection.
Here are some of the technologies that XDR security can integrate:
XDR platforms enable advanced threat detection and response because they:
To address the expanded attack surface, complete visibility and holistic protection are critical. Internet of the Things (IoT) assets, industrial control systems (ICS), and connected medical devices cannot accommodate security agents and thuscannot be secured with traditional security tools.
Armis helps organizations expand the visibility across all devices on their network and in their airspace. As an agentless device security solution, Armis works with all assets, helping to close the unmanaged device visibility gap.
Through the Armis Partner Experience (APEX) program, XDR vendors can integrate with the Armis platform to offer fully managed security protection. Armis is also a member of the Exabeam XDR Alliance and the CrowdXDR Alliance, working closely with XDR solution providers to enable unified threat investigation and response.
