Why XDR is a top security initiative for 2021
XDR is going mainstream – as predicted by Gartner in 2019. Recently, the SecBI XDR Survey asked businesses and security professionals to tell us when they are adopting XDR and why. Here’s what we found:
- Nearly 80% of security professionals said XDR should be a top cybersecurity priority for their organization.
- A whopping 68% of enterprises plan to implement XDR in 2021 and 2022.
- Over 90% of enterprises utilize security products from different vendors and would benefit most from a vendor-agnostic XDR platform to unify and improve Threat Detection and Response operations.
- Most SOC teams (59%) intend to use XDR to improve MTTD and MTTR, and 45% expect to do it with fewer security experts on staff.
