A key question to consider, Stiennon says, is: "Do they effectively analyze all network traffic alerts that are coming in and all endpoints traffic alerts and make sense of all that information?"
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of its RSA Conference 2021 coverage, Stiennon also discusses:
- What companies are missing in XDR implementation;
- How to manage alerts more effectively;
- What key features to look for in an XDR solution.
