WHAT IS MDR?
It is widely accepted that there is a chronic shortage of cybersecurity professionals and expertise
across all industry sectors. It is a worldwide issue that is impacting organizations of all sizes. The
problem is only made worse as adversaries improve their tradecraft, executing attacks with greater
speed and effect. Organizations struggle to move beyond a preventive security stance to address
the need for earlier detection, proactive threat hunting and a fast and effective response to threats
on a 24/7 basis. Staffing and resourcing a dedicated security team that can achieve all of this may
be feasible for larger organizations with the budgets to afford it, but most companies will find it a
difficult proposition given their resource limitations.
Managed detection and response (MDR) has emerged in response to this market need. MDR
helps an organization by implementing or improving threat detection, response, management
and continuous monitoring capabilities — all delivered as a service.
