Redscan one of two UK-based Representative Vendors listed in Gartner’s MDR Market Guide.

London, 28th September 2020

Redscan, the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Penetration Testing specialist, today announced its recognition in Gartner, Inc.’s 2020 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services [1].

The Gartner report is a comprehensive analysis of the MDR market, detailing the scope and attributes of service providers. It suggests that: “By 2025, 50 percent of organisations will be using MDR services for threat monitoring, detection and response functions that offer threat containment capabilities.”

Active incident response is highlighted as an increasingly sought-after requirement of vendors. Redscan counts this as a key feature of its ThreatDetect™ service and is making substantial investments in its CyberOps™ platform to deliver continued enhancements in this area and in other aspects of security automation.

Gartner’s list of representative Managed Detection and Response Representative Vendors primarily consists of vendors in North America, with Redscan one of two UK-based companies listed. Following the invalidation of the EU-US Privacy Shield and the expiry of the Brexit transition period at the end of 2020, Redscan expects more British businesses to seek high-quality UK-based security partners – with the company expertly positioned to meet rising demand and maintain its high-growth strategy.

“As well as extensive threat visibility, organisations also need the capability to take rapid action when a genuine incident occurs,” said Mike Fenton, Redscan CEO. “It’s important to choose a managed security partner that can deliver on both of these fronts to minimise cyber security risk. We believe this is a key reason why buyers are turning their back on traditional offerings and placing their trust in Redscan and our ThreatDetect service.

“An outcome-focused approach, deep knowledge of offensive security and extensive investment in our CyberOps platform mean we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of MDR to better protect our clients.”
