Tips on Implementing XDRVerizon’s Aaron Sharp Offers Insights on Leveraging Existing Tools
When it comes to implementing XDR - cross-layered detection and response - enterprises need to be able to leverage their existing tools, says Aaron Sharp, cybersecurity consultant at Verizon Advanced Solutions.
“If you already have an endpoint capability in place, it would make sense to leverage that asset and grow it out with network security," he says. "If you try to do too much, it is often the recipe for failure."
In a video interview previewing an Information Security Media Group’s virtual roundtable, Sharp also discusses:
- Why XDR adoption has been slow;
- The different approaches to implementing XDR;
- How to measure the effectiveness of XDR.
Sharp, a senior member of the Verizon cybersecurity practice, is based in Sydney. He specializes in delivering security solutions to Verizon’s enterprise and government clients. He has been with Verizon for more than15 years and has experience spanning risk management, architecture and design, deployment and service design.
