Wazuh XDR for Proactive Threat Management

Proactive threat management is an innovative approach that shifts the cybersecurity ideology from a defensive stance to an anticipatory mindset. It involves a comprehensive set of strategies, technologies, and practices aimed at identifying and mitigating threats before they materialize into security incidents. Organizations can significantly enhance their security posture and safeguard critical assets by utilizing proactive threat management.

XDR (Extended Detection and Response) has emerged as a useful solution for proactive threat management.XDR provides organizations with comprehensive visibility into their digital environment by integrating and correlating data from multiple sources, such as endpoints, network traffic analyzers, and cloud nodes.
