OPEN XDR SECURITY VS. EDR AND SIEM
SIEM tools focus on bringing together data from security sources that primarily focus on the network, while EDR products focus on detecting advanced threats and monitoring behavior on endpoints. While there can be overlaps where some SIEM tools ingest endpoint data, they lack fidelity and require specific data models. Open XDR security builds on the strengths of SIEMs and EDRs and extends these tools. It delivers singular contextual visibility across the enterprise by aggregating the relevant data from any and all sources, including SIEM and EDR, regardless of deployment model—on-premises, cloud, or hybrid—eliminating any blind spots. Unlike SIEM and EDR tools, Open XDR doesn’t require another data lake or repository or specific data models, it natively collects relevant data, just-in-time, reducing complexity and saving costs.
