Managed Detection and Response

High-speed threat detection, containment, and response

What is Managed Detection and Response (MDR)?


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

Using advanced security analytics on endpoints, user behavior, application, and network; MDR provides deeper detection compared to traditional MSSPs, who mostly rely on rules and signature.

For faster response, MDR also uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning to investigate, auto contain threats, and orchestrate response.
