- Organizations are increasingly using MDR services to detect and respond to advanced cyber threats.
- Gartner predicts that by 2025, 50% of companies will use MDR for threat monitoring, detection, and response.
- MDR is a fully managed, 24/7 service delivered by experts who specialize in detecting and responding to cyberattacks that technology solutions alone cannot prevent.
- It should not be confused with EDR (endpoint detection and response) and XDR (extended detection and response), which have different focuses.
Who Uses MDR Services:
- MDR services are used by organizations of all sizes and sectors.
- There are three main MDR response models: complete management by the MDR team, co-management with the in-house team, and alerting the in-house team with remediation guidance.
The Need for Human-Led Threat Detection and Response:
- Technology alone cannot prevent every cyberattack, as attackers increasingly use legitimate tools and credentials.
- MDR combines human expertise with advanced AI to detect, investigate, and neutralize advanced human-led attacks.
- While MDR is crucial, protection technologies like endpoint, network, email, and cloud security remain vital in cybersecurity.
- Automated protection technologies help defend against the increasing volume of attacks.
Top Five Reasons to Use MDR Services:
- Elevate Your Cyber Defenses: MDR providers offer expertise and experience that are hard to replicate in-house.
- Free-Up IT Capacity: MDR services help IT teams focus on strategic initiatives.
- Get 24/7 Peace of Mind: MDR services provide round-the-clock threat detection and response.
- Add Expertise, Not Headcount: Threat hunting requires specific skills, and MDR services provide the expertise.
- Improve Your Cybersecurity ROI: MDR services can be cost-effective compared to maintaining an in-house threat hunting team.
What to Consider When Selecting an MDR Service:
- Consider levels of support and interaction, breadth and depth of threat experience, day-to-day customer experience, and breadth and depth of telemetry when evaluating MDR services.
