Extensive threat visibility
Without awareness of activity inside your organisation’s network, it can be impossible to know if systems and data are in danger of being compromised. Kroll Responder Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provides extensive threat visibility across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments, 24/7.
Continual detection of attacks
With the threat landscape constantly evolving, it’s important to ensure that detection capabilities keep pace. Kroll Responder leverages the latest security tools and threat intelligence to ensure your organisation is prepared to respond to current and emerging cyber threats.
Eases the pressure on in-house teams
Kroll’s Security Operations Centre experts manage and monitor all the security technologies included as part of Kroll Responder. By investigating and triaging all the alerts they generate, our analysts ensure that your in-house team is not burdened with the responsibility of around-the-clock threat detection.
A swift response to cyber incidents demands a high level of situational awareness. Kroll Responder ensures that members of your security team are not weighed down by irrelevant alerts and that when genuine incidents occur, they receive the actionable mitigation guidance and automated response actions needed to respond effectively.
Reduces time to maturity
By operating as an extension of your organisation, Kroll Responder enables you to quickly elevate security capabilities to enterprise level. The service helps to make processes more efficient, ensuring that important security events don’t get missed, and your team is free to focus on other priorities.
A proactive approach to threat detection is now required to achieve compliance with the latest regulations and standards. With Kroll Responder, you can quickly elevate your organisation’s cyber security capabilities to a level needed to help meet the requirements of the GDPR, NIS Directive, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, and more.

Telemetry is collected from across your networks, endpoints, and cloud environments, analysed using the latest machine learning and behavioural detection engines, then enriched with the latest threat intelligence.
Detections are correlated and then grouped together by common attributes to create ‘cases’ – providing a more complete overview of security events.
Cases are triaged by Kroll’s 24/7 Security Operations Centre experts, and those which require attention are raised to your security team as prioritised incidents.
Clear remediation guidance and automated response actions are supplied to swiftly disrupt, contain and eliminate threats before they result in damage and disruption.
High-fidelity telemetry for threat awareness and decision advantage
To identify attacks, it’s important to not only use the best detection tools but also ensure they are fed the right security event data. Kroll Responder’s MDR experts integrate the most valuable security telemetry into your technology stack, benchmarking it against frameworks such as MITRE ATT&CK to minimise visibility blind spots.
Security event data alone is not enough – a deep level of threat intelligence is required to enrich it. Kroll Responder leverages the very latest offensive security and threat intelligence insights from our global team of experts to help improve real-time detection of the latest adversarial tactics and techniques.More about threat intelligence More on MDR use cases
Cyber threat hunting
Seeking out known and unknown threats at the earliest stages of attack
Kroll’s proactive, data-driven approach to threat detection means that our security team doesn’t wait for alerts. Using a combination of manual and machine-assisted techniques, we continually search for indicators that could signal the presence of unknown threats. This includes tuning security systems to better understand regular network activity, creating watchlists and conducting scenario-based testing to validate the effectiveness of controls and processes.Learn more about our SOC Learn more about threat hunting
The security outcomes needed to rapidly respond
Being aware that there is a threat within your network is not enough. It is vital to respond before it achieves its objective. Kroll’s SOC analyses and triages all incoming security alerts and, once a genuine incident is identified, provides the actionable mitigation guidance and incident response actions your team needs to respond quickly and effectively.
Kroll Responder also includes ‘Events-based Response’ – automated playbooks to contain and disrupt a wide variety of threats. Virtual and on-site support to help resolve priority incidents is also offered.Learn more about Cyber Incident Response

- What is MDR?
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is an advanced security solution that brings together threat detection, response and remediation activities in one solution to help organisations proactively hunt for, investigate, respond to and remediate threats around the clock. By gaining comprehensive visibility of threats through MDR solutions, companies are better able to enhance their security posture and reduce their risk exposure.
View the Kroll MDR Buyer’s Guide for more insight.
- How does MDR work?
An effective MDR solution combines the people, processes and technologies required to provide actionable insights and analytics and enable organisations to significantly strengthen their security posture. This supports greater incident awareness and faster, more reliable decision-making. A good MDR solution will apply a structured approach that should cover ingestion, analytics, investigation and response.
- What does MDR include?
An effective MDR service brings together many key security elements. It is defined by aspects such as real-world cyberoffensive intelligence, high-quality detection tools and experienced Security Operations Centre (SOC) experts who can act as an extension of an organisation’s team. Other key elements of a high-quality MDR service should include the integration of network and endpoint telemetry from a wide range of log sources, scenario-based testing to simulate potential attacks, and integrated incident response.
- How long does it take to implement an MDR service?
The length of time it takes to implement an MDR service varies according to an organisation’s scope, size and requirements. Rather than being defined by their underlying technologies, MDR services offer a turnkey approach built around defined outcomes and goals to address specific security use cases. This means they can be deployed in weeks instead of months, greatly reducing time to value.
- How does MDR facilitate regulatory compliance?
Taking a more proactive approach to threat detection is now an important element of achieving compliance with the latest regulations and standards. By providing this type of insight and detailed reporting, MDR solutions help organisations to meet monitoring requirements and standards, including those within the GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018, the Directive on the Security of Networks and Information Systems (NIS Directive or Cyber Security Directive), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) and more.
- What does an MDR service cost?
MDR solutions are significantly more affordable than the equivalent costs of setting up an in-house SOC. Because it removes the requirement to recruit a team of security specialists, deploy and manage a wide range of technologies and run a 24/7 monitoring operation, MDR offers organisations significant financial savings. The cost of an annual MDR solution subscription will be defined by aspects such as the type and number of technologies being deployed and the number of network assets and endpoints being monitored.
