Cisco connected the world; who better to defend it? This is the mindset Carlos Diaz brings to the new Cisco XDR release, which he says is designed to make cybersecurity defenders’ lives easier. The message that defenders should draw from this XDR solution, he says, is “Cisco knows me.”
In an interview with ISMG, Diaz discusses:
- Early response to the new solution;
- Key differentiators of Cisco XDR;
- Why Cisco is best positioned as a vendor to serve defenders.
Diaz is a Cisco Principal Engineer focusing on defensive countermeasures, large scale information management and security visibility efficacy for endpoint technologies to represent the core capabilities of SOC detection, investigation and response.
