It depends on the organisation’s needs and budget. If the organisation has the resources and expertise to manage the XDR solution, then purchasing XDR with full implementation and knowledge transfer may be the best solution. However, if the organisation lacks the resources and expertise, then opting for managed services around XDR may be a better option. Managed XDR can positively impact on operational cost. XDR can help organisations save time and resources by reducing the need for manual security operations. It can also reduce detection and response time, reduce false positives and false negatives, automate threat hunting, and improve visibility across the entire security stack. This can result in cost savings in terms of time and resources, as well as improved security outcomes.
