  • SCALR™ XDR replaced a legacy SIEM with a modern detection ecosystem complete with SRA’s playbooks. This is a lasting capability because the XDR is deployed in the client’s own tenant and enables the benefits of modern technologies like SOAR and Data Lake. If the client decides to resource its 24×7 staffing internally, they will retain the system that is built and working.
  • SRA pioneered the inclusion of Purple Teams in its SCALR™ XDR service. This approach brings transparency to visibility gaps and promotes knowledge sharing and joint ownership of defense success. Quantitative benchmarked metrics enable the client’s security leadership to communicate the journey of a threat-driven program with progressive MITRE ATT&CK alignment.
  • Since implementing SCALR™ XDR with SRA, the client’s savings have been dramatic – saving over 50% off their previous legacy on-prem spend and nearly 85% like-for-like against the most well-known cloud hosted SIEM solution on the market. This efficiency has allowed the client to invest more in other security programs.
  • SRA expects most  SCALR™ XDR users will achieve about 50% savings.
