One of the biggest security challenges that the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., faced prior to deploying an XDR solution was having the expertise and resources needed for 24 x 7 audit log monitoring on its network, according to CISO Nabil Ghadiali. The CIO staff of this small agency appreciates the advantages of SOC as a service, which provides speed of detection and speed of remediation, as well as having the SOC analysts review alerts and make sure they are not false positives. Another benefit is the agency doesn't have to purchase and install a SIEM tool, onboard staff who understand how to operate the tool, and make sure the software is up to date and secure. Members of senior management value the XDR solution because deploying their own audit and logging service was cost prohibitive and having the SOC resources and intelligence at their disposal was, as Ghadiali said, "phenomenal." He continued, "One of the greatest things about XDR is that it is organically growing into something that is bigger than any one of us could have stood up independently, and we are seeing this value again and again."
