XDR Momentum Expands as Industry Calls for Solution to Common Security Challenges


Trellix, the cybersecurity company delivering the future of extended detection and response (XDR), today released findings from a survey of 376 IT and cybersecurity professionals across North America in conjunction with analyst firm, ESG. This survey examined the state of security operations (SecOps) amid a challenging landscape, with 81 percent confirming the cybersecurity skills shortage has impacted their operations.

Survey findings include:

  • Users want XDR to address common threat detection and response challenges. Current tools require specialized skills, struggle to detect and investigate advanced threats and aren’t effective at correlating alerts.
  • CISOs look to XDR, especially advanced threat detection, to improve security efficacy. They also want XDR to streamline SecOps and bolster staff productivity to alleviate staff shortages.
  • SecOps want XDR to prioritize alerts based on risk, improve detection of advanced threats, create greater efficiency in forensic investigations, reinforce security controls and prevent future attacks.

“SecOps teams need a better way to collect, process, analyze, and act upon massive amounts of data,” said Aparna Rayasam, Trellix’s chief product officer. “Trellix meets this need head-on by pulling all the data into one holistic view so teams can work smarter and respond faster.”
