Beyond EDR: Modernizing Your Threat Detection and Response Program

Presented by

Dave Gruber, ESG; Bharath Vasudevan, Alert Logic

About this talk

Endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools are now mainstream for most, yet they often do not offer the proper breadth and coverage needed to secure a modern IT environment. As a result, many continue to struggle to find skilled security talent to implement, manage, and utilize these tools. Now, a defense in depth approach that includes threat detection and response programs has become a foundational element of a comprehensive, modern security strategy. The acceleration in the use of cloud-delivered applications and services together with a more advanced threat landscape is causing many to look for solutions beyond traditional EDR. While many are looking to managed detection and response (MDR) providers to close the gap, others are exploring extended detection and response (XDR) solutions to combat advanced attacks. In this discussion-oriented webinar, ESG's leader for detection and response, Dave Gruber and Bharath Vasudevan, a longtime expert for Alert Logic's comprehensive Managed Detection and Response (MDR) platform, will explore threat detection and response programs, EDR, MDR, XDR solutions, and how they can work effectively together to strengthen your overall cybersecurity program.
