Exploring Top Use Cases for Network Detection and ResponseNat Smith Discusses Gartner's Report on Emerging NDR Trends
The network detection and response market is "relatively unchallenged at this point by other markets," and detection is the most important use case, says Nat Smith of Gartner, who shares key findings from the company's report titled Emerging Trends: Top Use Cases for Network Detection and Response.
Smith says Gartner sees "most of the innovation and focus from the vendors and for buyers" in detection.
Response, he says, is probably the least mature of all of the use cases: "Very few vendors do it exactly the same way and so there's not a lot of consistency across [the market]." But he predicts that in 2022 vendors in the space will begin to consolidate.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Smith also discusses:
- The state of the NDR market today;
- The role of NDR in the new age of extended detection and response, or XDR;
- How the NDR market will evolve in 2022.
