With today’s ever-evolving threat landscape, advanced security is not enough to prevent attacks on your users and infrastructure. You need capabilities in place to help you respond rapidly to threats that may breach your defenses. To avoid serious and widespread damage, you need to prevent as much as you can and detect and respond quickly if a threat breaks through. The efficiency of XDR allows resource-constrained security teams to do more with less.

Join Antoine Saikaley as he leads this interactive conversation focused on:

  • How XDR delivers on data correlation needed to tell the full story of an attack
  • What the pragmatic differences are with XDR in the real world
  • How this aligns with MITRE ATT&CK
