"One of the big areas is a multi-layered defense and detection strategy and that has been a big challenge for organizations," Philp says. "Networks are becoming bigger and more complex. XDR can help here as organizations can pull together many of those multi-layered defenses and get the protection first and then let the analytics do all of the heavy lifting."

Arabi says XDR's true value comes from correlating telemetry activity data and threat detection data. "It can demand systems to cough out telemetry data that no other systems can get, including SIEM and SOAR systems," he says.

In a joint video interview with Information Security Media Group, Arabi and Philp also discuss:

  • How XDR helps with active threat detection;
  • Adoption of XDR in Middle East vs. AMEA region;
  • How to address XDR's current challenges.

Philp, sales leader at Trend Micro, has more than 20 years of experience in IT with a primary focus on cybersecurity. For the past seven years, he's been assisting large enterprises and government agencies in reviewing, maintaining and optimizing their cybersecurity posture.

Arabi, Trend Micro's managing director for the gulf cluster region, has extensive experience in managing large IT sales and technical teams. He started his career as a systems engineer at NCR and later moved into IT management roles for CNS, Interhealth Canada and Midis Group.
