Addressing the cybersecurity needs of under-secured markets presents a unique set of challenges. Jim Simpson and Heidi Craun of Blumira discuss why traditional XDR solutions fall short and how their approach helps firms strengthen their cybersecurity posture while enhancing customer experience.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Simpson and Craun discuss:

  • The limitations of traditional XDR in under-secured markets and why it's time for a new approach;
  • How XDR and internal collaboration yield superior incident detection;
  • The emerging threats of 2024 and the key questions CISOs should be asking now.

Simpson, CEO of Blumira, helps security startups be successful by centering products around the people who use them. He strives to eliminate gatekeeping in the information security industry, removing the barriers that prevent smaller teams from achieving successful security programs.

Craun has over 15 years of experience working in or leading customer experience teams. Prior to joining Blumira, she was head of customer experience at Clearcover. Before that, she was vice president of customer experience at FarmLogs.
