Microsoft has been named a Leader in The Forrester New Wave™: Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Q4, 2021,1 receiving one of the highest scores in the strategy category. Microsoft 365 Defender was rated as “differentiated” in seven criteria including detection, investigation, and response, and remediation.

As a Leader Microsoft and other leaders are able to “combine the best elements of their portfolios, including industry-leading products, to simplify incident response and build targeted, high-efficacy detections.”

The new XDR market category extends traditional endpoint detection and response (EDR) to include extra sources of telemetry including identities, applications, and cloud infrastructure and then uses AI to correlate and prioritize threats.
