SOC Modernization and the Role of XDR | ESG Research from Anomali

<h2>CISOs Use XDR to Solve Threat Detection and Response Challenges</h2> <p>Security operations remain challenging due to a growing attack surface, a dangerous threat landscape, and the increasing use of cloud computing. Security professionals want extended detection and response (XDR) solutions that deliver relevant intelligence with integrated automation and frameworks like MITRE ATT&CK to help guide and support their advanced threat detection needs. </p> <p>Anomali commissioned the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) to survey IT and cybersecurity professionals responsible for evaluating, purchasing, and utilizing threat detection and response security products and services across multiple industries to help determine how teams prioritize SOC investments and XDR projects. </p> <p>Key highlights include:</p> <ul> <li>51% of organizations invest in XDR solutions because they struggle to detect and investigate threats with their current tools</li> <li>80% of organizations use more than 10 data sources for security operations; that’s a lot of data and telemetry that needs to be ingested and analyzed</li> <li>39% of organizations consider threat intelligence platform capabilities to be the most important when evaluating threat detection and response solutions</li> </ul> <p>More than half (52%) of security professionals believe XDR will supplement existing security operations technologies. XDR momentum continues to build since current tools struggle to detect and investigate advanced threats, require specialized skills, and aren’t effective at correlating alerts. CISOs want XDR tools to improve security efficacy, especially advanced threat detection. </p> <h4>Download the eBook to find out which common challenges drive the most XDR interest and which XDR use cases are the highest priority for SOC modernization. </h4>
