Why managed detection and response over a traditional managed security service?
To help address the growing challenges of cyber security, many businesses turn to Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to supplement in-house capabilities.
While offering basic threat monitoring and alerting, the support offered by MSSPs is increasingly insufficient for business needs and can require organisations to maintain a high level of in-house security resources in tandem. When attacks occur, organisations using traditional MSSPs may find that they are left exposed.
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a new breed of security service integrating the dedicated experts, technology and intelligence needed to overcome the shortcomings of the MSSP model by proactively hunting for, investigating and providing the support to swiftly eliminate threats 24/7.
“Clients should be wary of claims from traditional MSSPs on their ability to deliver MDR-like services. Delivering these services requires technologies not traditionally in scope for MSS, such as endpoint threat detection and response, network behaviour analysis and network forensic tools.”
Gartner, Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services
The benefits of an MDR service
Proactive threat detection
Unlike security monitoring services offered by MSSPs, MDR doesn’t wait for attacks to happen – it utilises advanced behavioural and endpoint analytics to hunt for unknown threats before they’re able to obtain a foothold on your business’ network.
Thorough threat investigation
Unlike a traditional managed service, MDR does not simply ‘pass alerts over the wall’. Before being brought to the attention of your in-house team, every alarm is meticulously investigated and triaged to ensure that it is a genuine incident requiring action.
Fully certified experts
By choosing Managed Detection and Response, rest assured that the people actively monitoring your network are experienced cyber security professionals, not service desk operatives trained to solely handle tickets.
All technology and intelligence included
Unlike many MSSPs, MDR providers supply and deploy, as part of the service, all the requisite security technologies needed to facilitate successful threat detection and response. These include SIEM, Intrusion Detection, Vulnerability Scanning, Behavioural Analytics and Endpoint Analytics.
Integrated incident response
Should a breach occur, rest assured you won’t be left stranded with MDR. Integrated incident response ensures every event is managed by a team of dedicated security experts that have the knowledge and toolset to shut down threats before they cause damage to your business.
