The cybersecurity industry inherited one main truth from the security industry: those who wish to defend everything end up defending nothing. As a result, companies must choose between Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Managed Detection and Response (MDR), and Extended Detection and Response (XDR). These solutions protect your crucial assets without overextending, overcomplicating, or overpaying.
EDR, MDR, and XDR aren’t competing cybersecurity options. Rather, they’re different approaches to how you wish to protect your system and information.
Lets see each of the approaches, then their pros and cons, and eventually put them head-to-head. There would be different scenarios where one is most suited.
