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.
