US Signal announces the addition of Managed Extended Detection and Response (XDR) to its managed security services portfolio. Managed XDR is a fully managed, cloud-native, cloud-scalable security service that collects and automatically correlates data across multiple layers, including endpoints, servers, cloud workloads, and networks.
Combined with security analysis and 24/7 monitoring, this speeds up threat detection, generates improved investigation and response times, and provides a more holistic approach to threat detection and response. Meanwhile, there is minimal impact on system performance. Pricing is comprised of a monthly fee per endpoint.
AI-driven Threat Detection
US Signal’s Managed XDR leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to proactively monitor and send alerts for suspicious behavior. When potential incidents are identified, the cloud-based platform provides enhanced visibility into network activity to help confirm incidences and identify their sources. The solution also uses analytics and log aggregation to aid in the delivery of incident response plans.
The US Signal Security Operations Center (SOC) team manages and monitors the XDR platform, and provides in-depth expertise in threat detection and response. Because the team receives and responds to all security alerts, customers’ internal resources are freed up for other endeavors.
“Standard endpoint detection and response (EDR) protection is limited to protecting individual workstations and servers,” explains Trevor Bidle, Chief Information Security Officer. “Managed XDR not only extends monitoring to network and cloud resources. It correlates all the data to provide the full context needed for an attack-centric view of an entire chain of events across security layers.”
Multiple Use Cases
Managed XDR serves a number of use cases, including remote workforces that are, by nature, more prone to security threats. The solution also works well for organizations that are understaffed or have underdeveloped security teams. In addition, it extends protection beyond endpoints to cover cloud and network environments. More information can be found about Managed XDR at https://ussignal.com/services/...
