SIEMingly SOARing with XDR | Tomversations: Episode 33

Are you getting overwhelmed with the amount of acronyms in security? Tired of trying to figure out what platform is responsible for which roles? Is XDR only cool because it starts with “X”? if you’ve asked any of these questions or you’re finally ready to understand platforms then this is the episode of Tomversations for you!

We will discuss the differences between SIEMs, SOARs, and how XDR has arrived to muddy the waters. We will discuss the strengths of each solution as well as discussing why you might need to reconsider which one you want to deploy and what kind of support you’ll need.
