Better Together: Extended Detection & Response and Connected Security
Date / Time: Wednesday, March 16, 2022, 12:00 p.m. New York
As businesses move workloads to the cloud, data security becomes more pertinent. Data that is spread across cloud and on-premises environments exposes gaps and vulnerabilities. Security teams are challenged by too much data, too many tools and not enough resources. It’s time for a new way to unify security data, tools and teams. And there’s a strong need to tie everything together in one place, increasing the need for extended detection & response (XDR) tools and their synergy with connected security.
