McAfee announced the general availability of MVISION Extended Detection and Response (XDR) with inclusion of Cloud, and network telemetry, unifying and optimizing threat detection and response beyond endpoints to allow for faster, more proactive investigation cycles, easier, automated response and continued modernization of today’s security operations centers (SOC).
According to Enterprise Strategy Group1 research, more than 80 percent of organizations are planning increased investment in threat detection and response solutions, affirming the heightened need to safeguard against today’s crowded threat landscape. Specifically, more than two-thirds of organizations surveyed expect to make an XDR investment in the next 6-12 months and nearly half (48 percent) would be willing to replace individual controls with integrated XDR solutions.
“Organizations can no longer afford ineffective disparate threat and response tools and context,” said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “With XDR, we are seeing an opportunity to take the SOC as we know it to the next level – moving from operating in a time and resource intense reactive manner with existing, disparate tools to using a comprehensive and integrated XDR solution that can not only proactively predict mal-activity, but also help drive faster remediation decisions with automation.”
