To keep up with new threats, businesses now require different combinations of detection and response capabilities. XDR is one of the latest security services being promoted by Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP’s) around the globe. The term stands for Extended Detection and Response (XDR) and claims to be the latest in detection, investigation, and response.
What Should XDR Include?
“At SecurityHQ, we get vendors asking about XDR daily. For SecurityHQ, XDR is a service that combines multiple feature options, to ensure an enhanced security posture specific to the user/company. Every company is different, and every industry requires different security needs. Which is why our XDR combines Managed Detection & Response (MDR) with a combination of some, or all the following elements, depending on your service needs. These elements include MDR, UBA, Network Flow Analytics, EDR, Threat Containment and Dark Web Monitoring” – Eleanor Barlow, Content Manager, SecurityHQ
User Behaviour Analytics: Identify patterns of usage that indicate malicious or anomalous user behaviour. From launched apps, file access, to network activity, monitor who touched what, when and where an element was accessed, how it was made, and how often.
Network Flow Analytics: View and gain a comprehensive view of your entire network infrastructure, by examining sources, target ports, IP addresses and more.
Endpoint Detection & Response: Continually monitor endpoints, gain full visibility of your whole IT environment, detect incidents, mediate alerts, stop breaches, and receive instant advice.
System X Threat Containment: IR Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) for accelerated enrichement, playbooks and threat containment.
Dark Web Monitoring: Monitor the dark, deep, and visible web to detect risks and alert, investigate and take down offending content.
Bring Your own License: Whatever features work best for you, either apply SecurityHQ’s own SentinelOne turnkey solution, or bring your own license and merge the package you want.
