See more and respond faster

Deep and broad extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities collect and automatically correlate data across multiple security layers – email, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads, and networks. Native sensors and protection points coupled with the XDR capabilities allow for the quick detection of complex attacks that bypass prevention.

Improve visibility and protection

Centralized security management helps you bridge the IT and SOC silos that often separate layers of protection and deployment models. This type of connected, centralized approach improves visibility and protection, reduces complexity, and eliminates redundant and repetitive tasks in security administration–all of which make your organization more secure and your life easier.

Visual timelines allow you to see patterns of threat activities for users across all their devices and within organizational groups, eliminating security gaps.

Lower the burden on IT

Lower security management costs by saving time and reducing IT workload.

  • No more console hopping – configure policies, manage threat and data protection, and perform detailed investigations from a central console for multiple layers of security.
  • Gain a holistic view of your security posture with continuous monitoring and centralized visibility.
  • Enjoy easy integration with your SOC.


Faster time to protection

The automatic sharing of threat intelligence reduces the need for IT intervention and adapts your security posture more quickly. Simple threat investigation tools allow you to look back in time to identify where a threat has spread and the full context and extent of an attack.
