McAfee introduced MVISION Extended Detection and Response (XDR) with the inclusion of Cloud, and network telemetry, unifying and optimizing threat detection and response beyond endpoints to allow for faster, more proactive investigation cycles, easier, automated response and continued modernization of today’s security operations centers (SOC).
For improving the SOC experience
According to Gartner, XDR offerings are a natural evolution of endpoint detection and response (EDR) platforms, which have become a primary incident response tool for security teams. With the launch of MVISION XDR, McAfee is directly improving the SOC experience. MVISION XDR provides proactive and actionable intelligence, cloud threat integration, Network telemetry prioritization, SOC infrastructure optimization.
Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, said,
“Organizations can no longer afford ineffective disparate threat and response tools and context. With XDR, we are seeing an opportunity to take the SOC as we know it to the next level – moving from operating in a time and resource-intense reactive manner with existing, disparate tools to using a comprehensive and integrated XDR solution that can not only proactively predict mal-activity, but also help drive faster remediation decisions with automation.”
XDR product is to improve security operations productivity and enhance detection and response capabilities by including more security components into a unified whole that offers multiple streams of telemetry, presenting options for multiple forms of detection and concurrently enabling multiple methods of response.
