Cybersecurity Is a People Problem: Here’s How XDR and MDR Can Help

As organizations continue to embrace digitization, security remains a top priority. Forward-looking cybersecurity strategy is essential for companies investing into sustainable and long-term successful digital transformation.

However, many organizations investing in cybersecurity are falling into the trap of assuming their cybersecurity challenges are being caused solely by technology shortfalls and the shift away from legacy processes. Whilst technology plays a critical role in mitigating cyberthreats, many of the most advanced tech-driven solutions can fail to overcome what is the biggest problem in cybersecurity: people.

Almost every cyber threat — be it ransomware attacks or vulnerabilities — can be traced back to an action, or failure, of somebody inside the company.

A staggering 82% of breaches involved a human element, according to Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report. This includes incidents in which employees exposed information directly (for example, by misconfiguring databases) or by making a mistake that enabled cyber criminals to access the organization’s systems.

Bitdefender GravityZone XDR natively observes and detects attacks across the organization’s environment: physical and connected devices, virtual and cloud platforms, and their hosted workloads are all covered, while Bitdefender MDR — backed by GravityZone XDR — combined endpoint, network, cloud, identity, and productivity application telemetry into actionable security analytics, augmented by the threat-hunting expertise of a fully staffed security operations center (SOC).

While many modern security operations fail to identify malicious activity that can evade many security tools, Bitdefender’s advanced solutions provide a more detailed understanding of what ‘normal’ looks like enabling MDR teams and organizations to win against malicious actors in the ever-evolving cyber space.
