XDR evolves EDR (endpoint detection and response) cybersecurity capabilities and fulfills out-of-the-box the incident responders’ needs to integrate additional telemetry sources, deliver contextualized security incidentsn, and more comprehensive response capabilities.
XDR aims to bridge asset visibility gaps in enterprise organizations and leverage cloud-scale security analytics to provide high-fidelity, actionable insights to security operations teams. The main capabilities of XDR include:
Bitdefender GravityZone XDR (extended detection and response) cybersecurity solution analyzes and detects attacks from across an organization’s infrastructure and applications with more accurate detection and rapid, guided response.
Comprehensive single-vendor solution for endpoint, network, identities, and cloud workloads. Our easy to deploy and manage sensors enable organizations to bring in data from across the organization, not just from managed endpoints. Added context and correlation automatically triage incidents and brings the most important threats to the top.
Industry-leading prevention and detection methods are applied to a broad set of data sources. We have developed multi-tier correlation and detection algorithms delivered both locally to the sensor and at the cloud platform level. We are not reliant on other security vendor’s technologies for detection. Additionally, we enable security teams to easily create their own detection rules.
Automated threat identification, triage, prioritization, and response designed for teams with varying skill sets. We automatically build the root cause analysis and contextualize it with automated and guided investigations of incidents. One screen with all the data needed to confidently take action.
The response is executed directly from within the XDR Platform. Unlike Hybrid XDR vendors, we don’t ask security teams to integrate workflows or rely on a separate Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) technologies, we provide out-of-the-box response actions across endpoints, identities, email, cloud applications, and network controls to rapidly respond to threats from one integrated console.
Expanded detection capabilities across the kill-chain for earlier detection of attacks across a wide variety of infrastructure and cloud environments
Depending on whether the additional sources of telemetry are part of the same vendor portfolio or not, an XDR solution is classified by Forrester as “Native” or “Hybrid.”
The Native XDR (extended detection and response) approach relies on the tight alignment of the vendor’s own portfolio and stronger integration between the elements providing telemetry.
This type of XDR is, therefore, faster to deploy and provides a shorter time to value. It is also expected that a Native XDR solution will include a higher degree of automation and will be operationally less complex, demanding fewer and fewer senior security resources. Forrester suggests in the report that organizations with smaller and less mature security teams will benefit most from a Native XDR. Alternatively, Hybrid XDR offers higher flexibility and multiple integration options with various third parties, allowing security teams to leverage the tooling of their choice. This makes Hybrid XDR a choice suited for larger and more mature security teams.
Bitdefender is recognized as a cybersecurity leader by independent testing organizations, industry analyst firms and media outlets.
