Introducing AT&T Managed Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

In today’s dynamic threat landscape, having different tools to meet unique security requirements helps keep data protected. However, businesses today have 10 to 50+ security tools and consequently spend too much time managing them instead of protecting against cybercrime. This security tool overload creates internal challenges and potentially distracts from the primary business mission.

The security landscape is ever-changing, intensified by more sophisticated threats, and an increasing number of employees working from home leading to an expanding attack surface. Security professionals are tasked with maintaining a secure environment against a plethora of threats, manifested in thousands of alerts and events that are generated by security controls every day.


XDR, What is it? Does everyone agree? What is Real Impact vs. Hype?

With so many overlapping and self-serving definitions of XDR (Extended Detection and Response), we thought we would provide a perspective from some of us on the front lines of trying to embrace technology innovation while filtering vendor marketing noise. We agree with several industry analysts covering the space that XDR is a vendor push with no real customer demand, but the problem spaces within XDR are of significant customer interest.


Considerations when choosing an XDR solution

Cybersecurity is a fast-moving space. In fact, it’s hard to think of a time that security has been moving more quickly. As we continue to move into the cloud, work from home, and otherwise continue the digital transformation of our businesses, additional capabilities are needed as new threats are discovered.


The meaning behind XDR: A beginner's guide to extended detection and response

In the world of threat detection and response, alert fatigue and tool sprawl are real problems. Security professionals are struggling to manage different tools and control points and still relying on manual processes, which results in security that is fragmented and reactive. Analysts need better visibility and control, more context, and better use of automation so they can cut through the noise and respond to threats faster and more effectively.
