IT Perspective: MDR Managed Detection and Response
Cybersecurity threats need to be monitored and responded to in real time, as hackers work just as hard to develop and exploit new vulnerabilities.

The growing threats to your personal and professional data are on the rise all over the world. Cybersecurity threats need to be monitored and responded to in real time, as hackers work just as hard to develop and exploit new vulnerabilities. Without the necessary expertise or dedicated budget to fight this battle, your business can fall behind in resources and fall prey to intruders.

Enter MDR, Managed Detection and Response, the combination of human expertise and technology to rapidly identify and limit potential threats with immediate response and remediation. It’s a sensible, scalable approach to threats that involves planning and applying technology savvy to your network and endpoint security.

MDR is based on an endpoint detection and response tool that provides visibility into security breaches and events at an endpoint such as a workstation, server, laptop, cloud system, or device. IoT “Internet of things”. This offers rapid detection, mitigation, and remediation of malicious activities and incidents. Manual and automated actions are then enabled to contain threats on that endpoint, such as isolating that threat from the network or wiping and re-imaging the endpoint device.
