Comprehensive Threat Visibility: Integrating XDR into OMNIA or Atomius SD-WAN provides retailers with comprehensive visibility across their entire network infrastructure, including branch locations, data centres, and cloud environments. This allows for the detection of advanced threats and security incidents in real-time, ensuring that potential risks are identified promptly.

Unified Security Management: With XDR built into OMNIA or Atomius SD-WAN, retailers can manage their security operations from a single platform. This unified approach simplifies security management, reduces complexity, and streamlines workflows, allowing retailers to monitor and respond to security threats more effectively.

Automated Threat Detection and Response: By combining XDR with OMNIA or Atomius SD-WAN, retailers can automate threat detection and response processes. The XDR platform can analyse security events across the network and endpoints, correlating data to identify and prioritize threats. Automated response actions can then be initiated through SD-WAN policies, helping retailers quickly mitigate security incidents.

Enhanced Network Performance: Integrating XDR into OMNIA or Atomius SD-WAN enables retailers to optimize network performance while maintaining security. SD-WAN capabilities such as dynamic traffic routing and application prioritization can be combined with XDR’s threat detection capabilities to ensure that critical applications receive priority treatment, even during security events.

Protection for Remote Locations: Many retailers operate multiple branch locations, which can be challenging to secure. By integrating XDR into OMNIA or Atomius SD-WAN, retailers can extend security protections to remote locations more effectively. This ensures that all endpoints, regardless of location, are protected against cyber threats and vulnerabilities.

Compliance Assurance: With XDR built into OMNIA or Atomius SD-WAN, retailers can more easily meet regulatory compliance requirements. The platform provides continuous monitoring and reporting capabilities, helping retailers demonstrate compliance with industry regulations and standards such as PCI DSS and GDPR.

Cost Savings: Consolidating security and networking functionalities into a single platform can lead to cost savings for retailers. By eliminating the need for separate security appliances and management tools, retailers can reduce hardware and operational expenses while still maintaining robust security protections.
