IDC's Cloud Native XDR and Artificial Intelligence Security Analytics covers the evolution of extended detection and response (XDR), the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in cybersecurity platforms, and the tools and processes required to uplevel the role of tier 1 security operation center (SOC) analysts into more proactive roles in threat hunting and mitigation in software. A representative mix of technologies that comprise SOC analytics includes SOAR, network intelligence and threat analytics (NITA), deception, threat intelligence platforms and security services (TIP/TISS) adversary tools, process dump tools, sandboxing/reversing tools, and Windows/OSX/Linux evidence collection. This research is the advanced analytics companion to IDC's cybersecurity security information and event management (SIEM) and security and vulnerability management (SVM) market, which focuses on SIEM, SVM, and attack surface management tools.
