Understanding XDR

Over the past few years, many enterprises have discovered the benefits of endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools, which help to identify potential threats and warn security teams to take action. But today, many enterprises are also realizing that other threat surfaces, such as networks and clouds, also provide critical telemetry that can help security teams to quickly identify and respond to threats. In this webinar, experts discuss the benefits and limitations of EDR, and offer recommendations on how to extend these capabilities to other parts of the IT infrastructure in order to improve overall security.
