“XDR is an evolving technology that can offer unified threat prevention, detection and response capabilities for security operations teams. This research provides strategic guidance for SRM leaders to understand and evaluate the applicability of XDR platforms for their needs.”


Key Findings

  • Security and risk management (SRM) leaders continue to seek security vendor and product consolidation to manage risk and improve security operations productivity. Extended detection and response (XDR) vendors are making a play in this consolidation.”
  • “Initial XDR adoption is primarily at organizations with smaller security teams that likely have not fully utilized security information and event management (SIEM)/security orchestration automation and response (SOAR) products.”
  • “XDR will be an increasingly critical capability for buyers to evaluate when seeking strategic architectural decisions for their security operations program. XDR is built around multiple products designed to provide a more comprehensive offering for workspace security, network security or workload security domains.”

  • “Evaluate a vendor consolidation strategy utilizing XDR when improvement to security efficacy and security operations productivity can be demonstrated.”
  • “Evaluate any unused functionality in existing SIEM/SOAR first to ensure that XDR will cover any specific gaps in threat detection and response program. XDR should not replace SIEM/SOAR that is already deployed and working effectively.”
  • “Evaluate XDR on its overall utility not just component parts; features to consider include functional orchestration and automation; quick and immediate response; and advanced security analytics.”
