Create Custom Alert Rules

Create custom alert rules in XDR to alert you when specific criteria that you set are detected. This feature gives your security team the flexibility to create rules specific to your environment and allows further customization of your internal capabilities.


Because custom alert rules vary greatly from customer to customer, our analysts are unable to monitor your custom rules. Therefore, if you implement custom rules, you must have internal resources and processes to manage the corresponding alerts.

Set up Automation Using Playbooks

Automation through XDR automates manual tasks, relieving your organization of common challenges such as a lack of resources and time to handle those otherwise manual tasks. This provides you with more time to investigate and respond to suspicious activity more efficiently.

Secureworks creates connectors to supported IT tools within your environment. These connections allow us to take read-and-write actions across your infrastructure, with your approval. You then create playbooks, which represent a series of actions and logic, specific and configurable to your organization. These playbooks take action on your network automatically, relieving the need for manual intervention.
