Microsoft 365 Defender XDR

What is Extended Detection and Response (XDR)?


XDR enables cross-layered detection and response—with response being the key differentiator—across endpoints, emails, networks, servers and cloud workloads. Microsoft 365 Defender XDR is designed to be both preventative and predictive. It uses AI and expert analytics to analyze the vast amounts of cybersecurity telemetry for identifying fewer but more reliable and context-rich alerts and then providing response capabilities to resolve incidents.

Wait, isn’t that what a SIEM supposed to do? It’s true that while many
organizations use a SIEM to collect logs and alerts from multiple solutions, it is still very difficult to grasp the larger context of the cyber attack with SIEM alone. XDR augments the SIEM by applying analytics and intelligence along with response capabilities to drive better, faster detection and automated responses.
