Coming out of VMworld2020, it is more clear than ever that the industry is ready for an XDR strategy. This strategy is made up of five pillars: data, analytics, cross-domain, automation, and cloud.
During the session, XDR EDR: How VMware's Integrations Re-Shape Protecting Your Assets, it is clear that in order to build a successful XDR strategy, organizations should look at supporting their ecosystem from multiple different dimensions of the XDR pillars and not from a single product. This is a refreshing take on XDR that Kognos is in full agreement with: integrations are key to building comprehensive XDR strategy.
A key point of focus that was discussed in the session was the need for the 5 pillars to fully address key challenges an organization’s intrinsic security strategy are facing today. According to Tom Corn & Brad Doctor, the main points of focus should surround the detection challenge, the investigation challenge, the incident response challenge, the time challenge, and the newly distributed enterprise challenge.
As an official partner with VMware Carbon Black, our integration directly addresses and resolves issues presented by the instricic security challenges and acts as a piece of the puzzle to build a complete XDR strategy.
