TEL-AVIV, Israel and BOSTON, July 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CardinalOps, the AI-powered detection engineering company, is sponsoring a live SANS webinar with the goal of helping security operations professionals decipher the alphabet soup around SIEM, EDR, XDR, and MDR.
Large and mature security organizations have invested years of time and effort into their SIEM deployments – often described as the "operating system of the Security Operations Center (SOC)" – as well as their EDR deployments. Many are now faced with questions about the benefits and risks of adopting new approaches versus optimizing the effectiveness of their existing security stacks.
To hear what the experts are saying, join Dr. Anton Chuvakin, Security Advisor at the Office of the CISO, Google Cloud, and Randy Watkins, CTO at Critical Start, as they discuss (and debate) questions such as:
- If I have a SIEM and EDR, do I need XDR?
- Is XDR a better EDR or a new SIEM?
- Does XDR include response? Where does SOAR fit in?
- Is XDR a hunting platform or a detection platform?
- Is MDR about managed services related to EDR? What about Managed XDR?
- Does XDR take less headcount to manage and operate than standalone EDR and SIEM?
- Should I map my MITRE ATT&CK coverage across SIEM, EDR, XDR? How?
WHAT: SANS webinar featuring Anton Chuvakin and Randy Watkins
WHEN: Tuesday, July 19 at 3:30pm ET
