Fortinet has introduced a new Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solution, FortiXDR, designed to reduce complexity, speed detection, and coordinate response to cyberattacks across the organization.
FortiXDR is the only solution of its kind to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) for the investigation effort critical to incident response. Expanding on the cloud-native endpoint platform of FortiEDR, it enhances an organization’s Security Fabric and the threat protection powered by FortiGuard Labs security services.
Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet said “Cybercriminals are using sophisticated—and increasingly intelligent—tools to target vulnerable network edges resulting from digital innovation. As a result, organizations need smarter, faster security operations to combat sophisticated, organized cybercrime. FortiXDR is the only XDR solution that leverages artificial intelligence to replicate the hands-on investigation that otherwise leaves organizations playing catch up. Applied across the Security Fabric platform, it helps enterprises keep pace with today’s accelerating threat landscape, even for organizations limited by small teams and few tools.”
“We know that even experienced security professionals struggle with a range of threat detection and response challenges. Our recent research found that two thirds (67%) of organizations manage threat detection and response using an assortment of point tools. Further, nearly half report they rely on manual processes for threat detection and response and struggle with the daily volume of security alerts, so it’s not surprising that 23% are already working on an XDR project and a further 70% expect to have a budget to invest in XDR over the next 12 months. With the introduction of FortiXDR, Fortinet is well-positioned to emerge as a major player in the XDR market.” Said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst, ESG.
Specifically, FortiXDR can fully automate security operations processes typically handled by experienced security analysts to mitigate threats faster across the broad attack surface.
Unlike other solutions, FortiXDR is AI-powered by a patent-pending Dynamic Control Flow Engine and continually trained by the threat data and research of FortiGuard Labs as well as the frontline expertise of its incident responders.
Additionally, FortiXDR can ingest telemetry from more aspects of an organization than any other solution, increasing the chance of detecting and properly classifying attacks. It also covers more of the cyber kill chain stages and supports more points of response to mitigate the impact of an attack more effectively than competitive solutions.
