Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

Gain the threat detection visibility, integration, and data insights you need to achieve security resilience.

What is XDR?

Extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities provide visibility and actionable insights across networks, clouds, endpoints, and applications to help Security Operation Center (SOC) teams to hunt, investigate, and remediate threats.

Our XDR capabilities are built into the broad portfolio of Cisco security products and easily integrates with existing solutions in your environment using open APIs.

This extensive integration correlates telemetry from across your security environment into a unified detection and response platform so it's easier to take focused and strategic action; often with one-click resolution. High-fidelity alerts help prioritize the severity of incidents and built-in orchestration lets you automate routine tasks so your teams can focus on more critical initiatives.

With the Cisco XDR approach you can…

Streamline security operations

A platform that natively connects Cisco solutions and integrates with third-party offerings can streamline your security operations.

Leverage context-driven prioritization

Actionable threat intelligence and an evidence-backed approach lets you focus on the greatest threats and anticipate what's coming next.

Accelerate your remediation

Built-in automated response functionality empowers your security teams to be more proactive and efficient.
