In the world of cybersecurity, there is no shortage of terminology to describe the technologies that keep an organization safe. Specifically, the abundance of technical language is overwhelming when it comes to the security operations that detect and respond to threats. What’s worse is that these terms are used
interchangeably and sometimes inaccurately.

A few examples are:

  • Managed Detection & Response (MDR)
  • Security Operations Center (SOC)
  • Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP)
  • Security Incident & Event Management (SIEM)
  • Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
  • Extended Detection and Response (XDR)
  • Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR)

Knowing the differences between these concepts and how they work together is critical. To stay ahead in today’s environment while also positioning your organization for the future, you need to look beyond buzzwords and understand the desired outcomes of your security strategy. And the best security strategy uses each of these services to complement each other.

This guide will examine these terms, their meaning, and how they relate to each other. We’ll also provide our thoughts to help you fully leverage these technologies.
