Sophos XDR, a threat intelligence and response tool, has announced major enhancements to its capabilities. With over 40,000 customers already using Sophos XDR to bolster their defenses, the company is a well-established leader in extended detection and response.
The latest enhancements to Sophos XDR aim to accelerate detection and response, offering expanded third-party integrations and new case management capabilities. The expanded technology integrations allow users to leverage telemetry from a wider range of third-party security tools, maximizing the ROI from their existing technology investments and streamlining security operations.
Additionally, Sophos XDR has integrated Network Detection and Response (NDR) into its platform, offering continuous monitoring of network traffic to detect various security risks, ranging from rogue devices to insider threats. This feature was initially introduced as an optional add-on for Sophos’ Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service and is now available for organizations managing their own detection and response activities.
The new and improved case management capabilities within Sophos XDR include a Case Notebook for documenting and organizing investigation progress, an Activity Log to track actions of team members, and a Case Summary for a concise overview of investigations. This release also features enhanced MITRE ATT&CK Framework mapping and new analyst response actions to contain potential threats more effectively.
Furthermore, the user experience for Detections has been redesigned to provide a clear view of critical data and easy access to enrichment pivots and actions. The new SQL-less XDR search tool enables analysts to swiftly locate specific data within the Sophos data lake and empowers users of all skill levels to find the data they need without requiring SQL expertise.
Sophos XDR has garnered high praise from customers and industry experts for its superior detection, investigation, and response capabilities. The platform was recognized in the 2023 Gartner Market Guide for XDR and named a Leader in the G2 Grid for XDR. Moreover, Sophos earned the position as the sole leader in Omdia’s vendor comparison for Comprehensive XDR and delivered exceptional results in the 2023 MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Evaluations.
Organizations looking to elevate their defenses against active adversaries can explore the capabilities of Sophos XDR by speaking with a Sophos adviser or through a no-obligation 30-day free trial available on the company’s website. With these new enhancements, Sophos XDR aims to empower organizations to better detect, investigate, and respond to suspicious activity before active adversaries can impact their systems.
