Managed Detection & Response (MDR)

Managed Detection & Response

What is Managed Detection & Response?

Managed Detection and Response can be described as an alternative to an in-house SOC in that the threat hunting, monitoring, and incident response is provided as a service in addition to the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). A successful MDR implementation will result in a 24/7 network monitoring and incident investigation and response as well as protection across endpoints, network, and cloud workloads. The granular visibility and protection gained from the deployment of MDR within an organization’s environment is one of its many benefits. The effectiveness of an in-house security team as well as a SOC deployment can be made possible by an MDR implementation.
