MDR is an outsourced service that looks for cyberthreats and helps you respond to those threats once they are discovered. Our MDR service uses a combination of technology to monitor for threats and humans to help validate alerts, proactively identify anomalies and help aid in your response.

Virtually all industries and organizations are at risk from cyberattacks. As Verizon’s annual Data Breach Investigations Report shows, methods of attack are becoming increasingly more sophisticated. As a result, many organizations struggle to stay ahead of the bad actors. That’s why many industries and organizations can benefit from our MDR service.

Many organizations are shifting away from traditional MSS to MDR. Our MDR service takes a significant step ahead of MSS by combining people, processes and technology to identify and, more importantly, help expedite the containment of cyberattacks.
