Beers with Engineers: Is XDR The Future?

As the IT infrastructure, attacker trends, and workplace norms continue to shift, the evolution of processes and technology are essential now more than ever before. In the Gartner 2021 CIO Agenda Survey, cybersecurity was the top priority for new spending, with 61% of the more than 2,000 CIOs surveyed increasing investment in cyber/information security this year.
Launching a new era of analytics-based threat detection solutions, Extended Detection and Response (XDR) leverages big data, AI and ML to deliver a best-of-breed security solution. Join us at a brewery near you as experts from US Signal and Acronis weigh in to discuss XDR, how it’s different, and how it serves modern threat detection and response efforts.
Our panelists will discuss:

  • What is XDR and what does it mean for your security operations?
  • XDR vs other detection and response technologies
  • What are the most important attributes of XDR?
  • What your organization should be doing now to start it’s XDR implementation
  • And more!
