Making sense of eXteNdEd detection and response
As is common in security, a buzzword becomes a product segment which is then flooded with new entrants or even old players with new offerings. A classic case is the detection and response segment. Initially, it was one approach – endpoint detection and response. But as vendors entered the segment they were driven to find differentiation points to stand out from the crowd.
What was a simple segment became one with many new acronyms, new problem definitions and of course a plethora of products. To help understand the basic differentiation of products in this segment this advisory provides a direct and simple definition for each main sector along with points to note about how to select any specific product in the segment.
