Cutting Through The Noise: Deciphering the Differences Between XDR, SIEM, SOAR, and UEBA

Today’s threat landscape is incredibly complex. The rise of Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) and underground markets selling hacking tools and services significantly lowered the technical barrier to executing advanced attacks. To keep pace, security providers continue to innovate new products and capabilities with the promise of solving the security efficacy Rubik’s Cube.

The latest round of innovation is XDR (Extended Detection & Response). XDR adds additional confusion in the market, especially as businesses try to understand how it relates to other security products, including Security Information & Event Management (SIEM), Security Orchestration, Automation, & Response (SOAR), User Entity and Behavior Analytics (UEBA), and Managed Detection & Response (MDR).

The evolution of these products into their next-gen versions further complicates matters. Next-gen SIEMs, for example, go beyond traditional log management and alerting, providing SOAR and UEBA capabilities as well. Next-gen SIEMs also heavily leverage machine learning, artificial intelligence, and correlation engines to limit noise and help teams focus on the alerts that matter.

As a result, businesses are asking themselves:

  • What role does each product play in an effective security program?
  • Where is the dividing line between each product?
  • Which product can replace another in my security stack?
  • How do I know which solutions are right for my business?

By downloading this paper, you'll learn about each product's capabilities and how the product puzzle pieces fit together. You'll also learn how to evaluate what's right for your business and unique use cases.
