Extended detection and response, or XDR, helps to detect threats and improve responses and is easier to manage than SIEM, according to experts from Verizon.

“The clear purpose of XDR is to identify more threats earlier in the kill chain, detect them faster and respond faster," says Aaron Sharp, cybersecurity consultant at Verizon Advanced Solutions.

Mark Mori, solutions executive, security at Verizon Japan, adds: “If you don't ingest threat intelligence properly, you are going to be late to the game. XDR helps in threat intelligence, but you have to constantly act on the feeds.”

In a joint video interview with Information Security Media Group, Sharp and Mori discuss:

  • The evolution of XDR;
  • Why XDR is becoming more widely used;
  • How XDR can help mitigate supply chain risks.

Sharp is a senior member of the Verizon cybersecurity practice based in Sydney. He specializes in delivering security solutions to Verizon’s enterprise and government clients. He has been with Verizon for more 15 years and has experience spanning risk management, architecture and design, deployment and service design.

Mori is a senior member of Verizon's security solutions team in Japan, providing security solutions to large Japanese multinational corporations. He has more than 20 years of experience in helping customers implement security solutions and BCP/DR and data protection solutions.
