The Importance of Automated Cyberthreat ResponseMike DeCesare, CEO of Exabeam, Discusses Evolving XDR Trends
It's critical to enable companies to not only see what is going on in their IT environments but to also quickly react, and "sheer manpower" is no longer sufficient to respond to the surge of cyberthreats evolving today, says Mike DeCesare, CEO of Exabeam.
"Companies are going to have to allow their cybersecurity products - and especially the easier things to block - to just block those threats automatically," he says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, DeCesare also discusses:
- Taking an open approach to XDR;
- The importance of automated response;
- The biggest cybersecurity pain points for many organizations today.
Prior to Exabeam, DeCesare served as CEO and president of Forescout Technologies and continues to serve as a board member. Prior to Forescout, he spent eight years at McAfee, serving four years as president and four years as senior vice president of worldwide sales and operations. DeCesare has also served in leadership roles at Documentum, EMC, and Oracle over the course of his career in cybersecurity.
