What is XDR for MDR?

Modern security operations rely on a combination of context, expertise, and intuition to identify malicious activity that can evade your security tools.

GravityZone XDR for MDR enables our security team to analyze and detect intrusions from across your infrastructure with more accurate, correlated detections.

This significantly expands the context available to our cyber threat hunters by providing a more detailed understanding of what ‘normal’ looks like in the environments we defend. In addition, sensors give our analysts access to a suite of additional response actions such as email deletion and user suspension that allows us to take contextual responses to the next level.

GravityZone XDR for MDR is available now by adding any sensor(s) to your MDR service: Productivity App, Identity, Network and Cloud.
