Managed Detection and Response

Managed Detection & Response

What is Managed Detection and Response (MDR)?

Managed detection and response is a service that helps solve the needs of organizations who lack resources and enables organizations to better detect and respond to threats.

Managed Detection and Response services are not all the same. Different vendors will offer a distinct set of tools and services, while the goals of managed detection and response remain the same: provide a service that helps organizations detect and respond to security incidents in a timely fashion, while reducing the burden on the organization, saving operational and software cost. Most MDR services combine vendor-provided technology with monitoring and analysis by human security analysts. Some companies, like WCS also use threat intelligence and data analytics to improve the quality of detection and to reduce false positives.

MDR services complement an organization’s own IT or security team to help provide the extra eyes for 24×7 coverage along with security expertise and guidance for re-mediating potential security incidents that are detected. These services will install and tune the necessary technology, removing this burdensome task from your organization.

By helping your organization identify and respond to threats, managed detection and response will help you comply with a multitude of compliance regulations. Most managed detection and response services include advanced SIEM and log management capabilities at the heart of their technology stack which is a requirement for many compliance regulations.
