Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

Returning 100 hours to your SOC.

Cisco's XDR approach

Boost productivity with a built-in, cloud-native platform approach connecting intelligent detections to confident responses across the Cisco Secure portfolio. Capabilities are integrated within each products' console, achieving the industry's broadest XDR.


Built-in extensions

Simplify breach defense with capabilities integrated across the broadest portfolio. 

Intelligent detections

Identify malicious intent with machine learning-based analytics across the most data sources.

Confident responses

Reduce threat dwell time with playbook-driven automation across the most control points. 

Defining the industry standard for XDR

Our next Cisco Secure Insights Summit focuses on extended detection and response (XDR) and how SecureX solves business challenges.

Gartner weighs in on why integration matters

Hear from the analyst that coined the term XDR. Gartner recommends that you "increase the importance of integration and automation in purchasing decisions."

Your fastest route to achieving XDR

Endpoint detection and response

Reduce incident response time by up to 85 percent by accelerating the detection and automating the response to threats.

Cloud-native integrated security platform

Achieve simplicity, visibility, and efficiency with the broadest, most integrated platform. 

Network detection and response

Reduce false positives by enabling behavioral detection with agentless visibility across the network and cloud.

XDR gets you better security outcomes


Reduction of dwell time:  Eliminate investigation tasks and shorten the time spent on threat hunting and staying compliant.


Saved per incident:  Reduce response time and improve end-user productivity by returning access to data faster.


More visibility across the network:  Detect and prioritize threats across your private network, public clouds, and even in encrypted traffic.

Ten ways you can experience XDR today

Explore our top 10 uses cases in our new e-book and get answers to questions such as:

  • Does XDR unify data from your security technologies?
  • What role does analytics play in bringing together insights from across attack vectors?
  • Is your endpoint security doing enough?
  • Is automation the answer?
  • How will you make better security decisions with XDR?

A simplified security experience

Get the cloud-native, built-in platform experience that connects our Cisco Secure portfolio and your infrastructure. It is integrated and open for simplicity, unified in one location for visibility, and maximizes operational efficiency with automated workflows.

XDR key capabilities

Achieve more with less effort

Find observables, then start a casebook or improve threat hunting with live endpoint queries. Manage incidents generated by analytics, then launch an investigation or orchestrated workflow.

Learn what is happening and how to act across managed endpoints and unmanaged network or cloud entities with a clearly explained verdict using 100 behavioral models and 400 ML classifiers.

Run playbooks using an extensive library of actions (isolate host, for example) and approvals. Continuous response (such as block file, prevent exploit) is based on analysis results before execution or retrospectively.
