There are almost as many flavors of detection and response tools as there are flavors at the local ice cream shop – OK, perhaps that’s a slight exaggeration, but there are definitely a confusing number of options these days. NDR (network detection and response), EDR (endpoint detection and response), XDR (eXtended detection and response), and even Open XDR – they’re all variations on a theme of protecting endpoints, since they’re the first line of network defense.
Which option to pick? As a ReliaQuest customer recently related to us with a smile on his face, cybersecurity vendors want to sell you tools: some of which are Teslas, and some of which are Vespas. Sometimes you need the full-on Tesla, and other times, the Vespa is all you really need to get the job done. But customers need to decide if the top-of-the-line model makes sense for the business, or if the scooter makes sense based on the risk environment.
