Fortinet’s FortiXDR debuted in January 2021 to reduce complexity, speed detection and coordinate response to cyberattacks across the organization, leveraging artificial intelligence for the investigation effort critical to incident response. The tool can fully automate security operations processes typically handled by experienced security analysts to mitigate threats faster across the broad attack surface.
The offering starts by leveraging the diverse security information shared across the Fortinet Security Fabric for correlation and analysis, converting them into high-fidelity security incidents. These incidents are then investigated by the artificial intelligence engine to come to a final threat classification and scope, according to Fortinet.
Finally, the best possible contextual responses are defined and can be automatically implemented by FortiXDR to quickly remediate confirmed incidents. FortiXDR also enables organizations to reduce the risk of missing potentially crippling cyberattacks like ransomware and phishing by ingesting telemetry that increases the chance of detecting and properly classifying attacks, according to Fortinet.
