What is Managed Detection and Response (MDR)?


Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is an advanced managed security service from Atos that provides threat intelligence, threat hunting, security monitoring, incident analysis and incident response. Our offering is unlike traditional MSSPs, which only provide alerts from security monitoring.

Using advanced security analytics on endpoints, user behavior, applications and the network, MDR provides deeper detection compared to traditional MSSPs that mostly rely on rules and signatures.

For faster response, MDR also uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to investigate, automatically contain threats, and orchestrate the response.

Combat sophisticated cyberthreats with Atos Managed Detection and Response services

Why choose Atos MDR services?

Cyberthreats are rising in both volume and sophistication every day. Traditionally, cyberdefense has been at a disadvantage. Attackers needed to succeed just once, while defenders must protect a large, ever-expanding attack surface 24×7. No amount of people can mine through all your security and IT data to detect modern threats and respond quickly to contain attacks.

Atos Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is built on the power of AI, big data analytics and edge computing to bring you multi-vector threat detection and full-service response at remarkable speeds.

As a client, you get the power of 16 next-generation SOCs that are dedicated to preventing breaches on public, hybrid and private clouds by proactively hunting, containing and responding to threats.
