Managed Detection and Response (MDR). What is it? How does it work? Who is it for? What is it?

MDR is an advanced cybersecurity service that is comprised of technology, processes, and expertise. – It’s a 24/7/365 operation that covers endpoints, workstations, servers, user behavior, applications, databases, and your entire network. – Managed Detection and Response focuses on threat intelligence and hunting, cybersecurity monitoring, and incident analysis and response. How does it work? – There are two components to it: – An aggregator that collects security warnings from different parts of the business to then filter events via a Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS). – An online MDR service that filters warnings further through Machine Learning, Automation, and manual analysis. Who is it for? – MDR is great for companies that are in vulnerable industries such as healthcare, finance, technology and government. – Managed Detection and Response also works well with Small and Medium-size Businesses (SMBs) that have over 10 employees.
