AT&T has launched its new managed extended detection and response (XDR) offering that provides autonomous endpoint protection to detect, respond and recover from security threats.

The AT&T XDR solution features a cloud-based security platform with security threat analytics, machine learning (ML) and third-party connectors. It protects endpoint, network and cloud assets with automated and orchestrated malware prevention, threat detection and response.

“Given the complexities customers are facing with digital transformation and protecting against increasing cyber threats, the approach to monitoring and addressing threats needs to evolve,” he said. “Our managed XDR solution extends automated and orchestrated managed detection and response with powerful new security analytics and ML capabilities.”

A managed solution that offers cybersecurity expertise can help overburdened security teams improve protection, detection and productivity, AT&T said.

Managed XDR Components

AT&T Managed XDR combines AT&T Managed Endpoint Security with SentinelOne and AT&T Managed Threat Detection and Response. Through this combination, AT&T security operations center (SOC) analysts provide 24×7 threat monitoring and management of separate threat detection stacks.

AT&T Managed XDR offers platform onboarding, initial policy tuning and training. Value-added services from AT&T Consulting include design, deployment and support services, employee security awareness training and an incident response retainer service.

Christina Richmond is program vice president with IDC Security Services.

XDR provides a critical path for efficient threat detection and response,” she said. “But one of the challenges in rolling out an XDR solution can be the complexity of deployment and fine-tuning of the platform. XDR solutions that provide both advanced capabilities and services to support customers 24/7 will be of greater value to organizations.”
