Exabeam introduces XDR Alliance

At the Black Hat conference, Exabeam and other founding members launched the XDR Alliance.

XDR stands for Extended Detection and Response and is by no means an extended EDR solution. The founding members are united by the idea that automated detection of attacks and the automated countermeasures derived from them cannot be provided in good quality by a single vendor.

The model consists of three technology areas:

  • Data Source / Control Points: Data source for analysis and control point for countermeasures.
  • XDR Engine: processing of log data, investigation and preparation of countermeasures
  • Content: Pre-built workflows to implement the use cases with maximum efficiency and automation.

This open architecture allows customers to choose the optimal solution for them, while still being confident that the technologies work together as a unit.

The XDR Alliance is a group of best-in-class security and information technology providers organized to help security teams easily design and implement effective threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) capabilities using the XDR approach. The XDR Alliance is not a closed group, so expansion is desired and planned.
