Managed Detection and Response

When defences fail, too many organisations find they are not equipped to respond.

Preventative measures alone are no longer sufficient

Organisations struggle to rapidly detect and limit the impact of threats that have bypassed network and endpoint defences.

Managed Detection and Response services go beyond traditional Security Monitoring and Threat Detection, providing rapid response and containment of threats that have bypassed preventative controls across networks, endpoints and cloud, hence delivering improved security outcomes for clients.

How it Works

Managed Detection and Response Services need to be aligned with an organisation’s prime risk requirements, whether they be related to Data Theft, Availability, Hactivism, Compliance, or other relevant risks. The key risks to mitigate depend on the nature and profile of the organisation concerned.

The MDR service methodology works as follows:

  • Identify your key risk mitigation and outcome-based requirements
  • Identify and deploy detection and response use cases to mitigate those risks
  • Use client technology stack where available and augment where needed to identify and mitigate key risks across endpoints, network, cloud or wherever the risks manifest
  • Deliver the detection and response service 24x7
  • Continuously evolve and improve use cases around the evolving risk and threat landscape
  • Create breathing space for enterprise security teams through delivery of continuous reporting and visibility and incident engagement that is consumable, aligned with internal business processes, is real-time, enables two-way collaboration and eliminates noise
