Modernize Your Security Operations Center (SOC) with XDR

Achieve new results by preserving and extending the endpoint and network contexts with VMware Carbon Black XDR. Proactively hunt for unusual network activity using threat intelligence and customizable detections. Take detected threat behavior and turn it into a prevention policy—so you don’t have to hunt for the same threat twice.

VMware Joins XDR Alliance™

VMware has joined the XDR Alliance, a partnership of leading cybersecurity industry innovators committed to an inclusive and collaborative XDR framework and architecture.

The mission of the XDR Alliance is to make a collaborative, open approach to XDR a reality for SecOps teams and help them effectively protect their organizations from cyberattacks.

XDR Powered by VMware Contexa™

VMware Contexa reframes traditional security analytics with enriched threat intelligence at global scale.

With access to the full breadth of VMware’s network and endpoint technologies, VMware Contexa observes every process running on an endpoint, every packet crossing the network, every access point, and every application.

The Future Ready SOC

By unifying detection and response across IT and security domains and devices, VMware delivers the essential foundation for XDR, and takes it even further.

Your XDR Questions, Answered.

Extended Detection and Response (XDR) is the convergence of tools and data providing extended visibility, analysis, and response across endpoints, workloads, users and networks.

XDR unifies endpoint and workload security capabilities with critical network and cloud visibility to reduce blind spots, detect threats faster, and automate remediation via authoritative context across these domains.

XDR is the evolution of endpoint detection and response (EDR). In addition to the authoritative endpoint-based view that EDR provides, XDR extends visibility to include even more telemetry and behavioral analysis across multiple security layers, allowing security teams to see the big picture.

XDR increases visibility and the security context, enabling threat prioritization, automation, operational confidence, faster time to resolution, and more surgical responses across more control points.

An open ecosystem XDR approach harnesses the best visibility possible from formerly disparate systems. This customer-centric approach allows an XDR buyer to mix and match the best controls, including ones they are already getting value out of. No vendor lock-in, no rip and replace. Just added value.
