What is Open XDR?

Open XDR (Extended Detection and Response) is an outcome-based strategy that involves integrating and correlating data from multiple sources to provide a unified detection and response capability to perform Enterprise Network Defense. This allows security teams to detect and respond to threats more effectively, because they gain increased visibility into threats across their environment.

How Open XDR Improves Monitoring, Detection, and Response

Our MDR service is designed to be tech-enabled and human-driven. Our open XDR strategy enables us to collect data from all relevant sources, correlate that data to understand patterns of behavior, and build detection rules that alert our SOC analysts when malicious activity is detected. This aggregation of relevant telemetry data from all sources provides a singular view across the enterprise, and lets our clients continue leveraging their preferred platforms. Let’s break down how that works.

Data Ingestion

When we onboard clients, we work to understand their unique risks, goals and what security controls they are currently using and determine which data sources we should ingest to create a comprehensive detection strategy. We also conduct a log gap analysis to identify and recommend missing log sources, address parsing gaps, and ensure sources are logging the right data to protect and defend your organization.

We work with all leading security controls and collect telemetry from endpoint, network, cloud, identity, and other systems.


The data we are collecting gets fed into our security platform where it is correlated to identify relationships between data points across multiple systems. Understanding the relationship between disparate data points provides the necessary context to implement a detection strategy that prioritizes the right events and arms our analysts with the information they need to investigate and respond to alerts. Correlation is the key step that takes you from “we have all of this data” to “we can act appropriately based on what the data is telling us.”


Correlating event data from all relevant sources enables much stronger detection strategies than are possible when monitoring data from disparate platforms. We work directly with clients to develop a detection strategy designed to prioritize the threats most likely to impact their business. Rather than taking a “detect all things” approach, we develop formalized detection strategies that are focused on breaking the attack chain at various tactics.

Open XDR enables us to be smarter with our detection strategy, which reduces noise and leads to faster detections and response.


Our 24x7x365 Security Operations Center monitors our clients’ environments and investigates when alerts are generated. Because open XDR enables us to have smarter detection rules based off a comprehensive data set, our analysts can respond to security threats more quickly and accurately. Reducing the time it takes to detect and investigate security events means our clients are better protected from threats and more easily able to respond to alerts that require their attention.
