Gartner® Market Guide for Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

As the attack surface expands and modern adversary tactics and techniques evolve, IT and security leaders are increasingly investing in Extended Detection and Response (XDR) to deliver a more unified and efficient approach to prevent, detect, and respond to threats. In acknowledgement of this heightened demand, Gartner recently published its first-ever Market Guide for Extended Detection and Response.

The Gartner Market Guide, which provides guidance for security and risk management leaders considering investments in XDR, includes Sophos among a shortlist of 12 Representative Vendors offering an XDR solution.

Sophos XDR is open, scalable, and accessible to organizations of all sizes. No one is more focused on making sure the attack never reaches your systems than Sophos. Prevention provides better accuracy and reduced workload through guided investigations of more accurate detections. The result is a combination of advanced technology and human expertise working together for a faster security outcome.

The Gartner Market Guide for Extended Detection and Response is a must read for anyone who wants to educate themselves about the market and future directions, key features of an XDR product, and recommendations from Gartner.

Take Sophos XDR for a test drive with a free trial of Sophos Intercept X endpoint protection. It combines Sophos XDR with industry-leading prevention capabilities to optimize your defenses by incorporating data from endpoint, server, firewall, cloud, email, and other data sources.

This follows hot on the heels of Sophos being named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) in May 2021.
