|In May, we achieved a few significant strategic milestones in our product roadmap. This included advancements in our EDR offering, the introduction of the Sophos Data Lake, and the launch of Extended Detection and Response (XDR) with integrations to our firewall and email products.|
Today we are announcing the integration of EDR and XDR into a single offering. Intercept X Advanced with EDR will become Intercept X Advanced with XDR, and Intercept X Advanced for Server with EDR will become Intercept X Advanced for Server with XDR. Sophos MTR customers will also automatically benefit from this new offering with no changes to pricing.
All existing EDR customers will automatically receive XDR functionality, and standard retention in the Sophos Data Lake will be increased from seven days to thirty days of historical data. Customers who already have endpoint or server EDR will get a better experience – new detection and response features along with additional data retention. Any EDR customers who have Sophos Firewall or Sophos Email will now be able to take advantage of cross-product visibility. And the best part for our customers is that this will come at no extra cost!
The new combined product makes XDR our singular offering for the world’s best detection and response, and it simplifies our go-to-market motion with Sophos now offering a single detection and response product (XDR) and a services-led offering (MTR).
The timing of this change corresponds with the end of sale of Central Endpoint Protection (CEP) and the introduction of Intercept X Essentials / Intercept X Essentials for Server, which also simplifies our offerings while strengthening the security we’re providing to customers.
