    Choosing the Right XDR Strategy

    A Comparative Analysis of SIEM-Driven and Alternative Approaches



    As cyberthreats continue to evolve, organizations are increasingly exploring Extended Detection and Response (XDR) to fortify their cybersecurity stance. At the same time, more vendors are joining the space, building their XDR solution on a different foundation — EDR, closed system, cloud-based, AI-driven and more.  

    Regardless of their base, XDR solutions typically meet three common themes: 1. It's a combination of multiple security tools. 2. There is some component of automation or AI. 3. The goal is to improve threat detection and incident response capabilities. One intriguing avenue organizations are exploring is SIEM-driven XDR, which integrates Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) as a foundational layer.

    In this video, Matt Warner, CTO and co-founder of Blumira, will:

    • Discuss the challenges SMBs face today
    • Define each type of XDR approach
    • Compare and contrast the benefits and challenges of each
    • Provide key considerations for choosing the right XDR solution
