What is MDR?
- MDR refers to a managed security service that provides organizations with outsourced monitoring and management of security infrastructure. MDR providers typically use a combination of technology, human expertise, and analytics to detect and respond to security incidents.
- MDR services often include continuous monitoring of an organization’s network and endpoints, threat intelligence analysis, incident response, and sometimes forensic analysis. The goal is to detect and mitigate cyber threats in real-time or near-real-time, minimizing the impact of potential security incidents.
What is XDR?
- XDR is an evolution of traditional endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions. It expands the scope of detection and response beyond endpoints to include a broader range of security data sources, such as network traffic, email, and cloud environments.
- XDR solutions integrate and correlate information from various security tools and sources, providing a more comprehensive view of potential threats across an organization’s entire IT environment. By connecting the dots between different data sources, XDR aims to provide a more holistic and effective approach to threat detection and response.
