Open XDR is a unified, AI-powered approach to detection and response, that collects and correlates all existing security tools, to protect the entire enterprise attack surface effectively and efficiently. Open XDR is Everything Detection and Response, more than eXtended Detection and Response, because it must defend against all threats across the entire attack surface. The only way to do this is by integrating with existing security tools.
Architecturally, Open XDR is about unifying and simplifying the entire Security Stack for the purpose of radically improving detection and response. At any given enterprise, a Security Stack will consist of numerous capabilities like SIEM, EDR, NDR, SOAR and more. These capabilities were never designed to work with each other, and teams spend too much time managing multiple tools, which is what leads to the problems of today – too many tools, not enough people, not right data. That’s where Open XDR comes in – unify all capabilities together, correlate alerts from individual tools into a holistic incident, simplify by reducing administrative overhead. AI and automation comes in as the only technically feasible way of protecting the entire attack surface effectively and efficiently, which is why it is a key architectural attribute of Open XDR.
The outcome of Open XDR is protecting your enterprise from threats from a single platform versus multiple tools that have weak or non-existent connections band-aiding it all together. And the ultimate outcome of Open XDR is radically improved detection and response at a price enterprise’s can afford.
