What Is XDR-as-a-Service?
XDR-as-a-Service, AKA Managed XDR, is a proactive, multi-dimensional approach to cyber threat management that incorporates 24/7 monitoring from security professionals into XDR’s core operations: threat hunting, investigation, alerting, and response. XDR services reduce alert fatigue and support overworked security teams, strengthening security processes to provide extended, managed protection.
In the ever-changing cyber threat landscape, XDR services often include the following operations:
Threat detection and investigation focused on internal and external threats via anomalies within standard data patterns and behaviors. As organizations introduce newer data points into their environment, this portion of XDR becomes scalable.
Threat hunting and alerting to identify and correlate hidden threats across multiple data sources on a network. XDR threat-hunting capabilities also provide automated alerting processes to notify IT teams of ongoing threats in their environment.
Threat response and recovery include user alerting, threat analysis, neutralization, and recovery. This XDR service implementation maximizes IT personnel’s efficiency and allows them to focus on human-centric, day-to-day security operations.
