Today’s complex IT environments are subject to the evolving nature of cyber threats, which are continually increasing in volume and complexity. The rapidly changing threat landscape combined with tighter budgets and limited staff leaves security leaders looking for a way to employ more targeted threat response with greater confidence while also improving review film operations, automation, and compliance.
Extended detection and response (XDR) is an evolution of endpoint detection and response (EDR) that integrates security and business tools while offering high-quality threat detection and response. New findings from commissioned research conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of VMware finds that although 75% of security leaders are in the discovery phase of their XDR journey, they are looking at XDR as a way to bolster their security solutions and meet the need for better security visibility across IT infrastructure.
In this study titled “Evolving Security Operations Capabilities: Insights into the XDR Paradigm Shift,” Forrester Consulting surveyed 1,291 global IT, networking, and security decision-makers responsible for the security and network strategy at organizations across North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific, to examine the XDR implementation status, misconceptions surrounding XDR, and next steps required for XDR adoption to progress.
