Managed Extended Detection and Response

Proactively detect and remediate unknown cyber threats


See how organizations can detect and respond to advanced attacks

Cyber criminals operate 365 days a year, carrying out endless attacks on organizations of all sizes and industries. Relying on indicators of compromise is no longer sufficient to handle today’s sophisticated attacks. Organizations need to use the latest tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) as defined by MITRE ATT&CK.

Managed Extended Detection and Response (MxDR) services use advanced workflows, correlating information from across endpoints, networks, the cloud and other sources, to detect unknown threats, investigate and prioritize alerts and enable internal teams to focus on operations.

Key benefits

Leverage managed detection and response services and uncover hidden risks and threats to mitigate risk and reduce reputational and financial damage.

  • Scale security operations capabilities

    Use managed detection and response (MDR) services to leverage experienced security personnel and advanced technologies to improve operations efficiency and speed time-to-value.

  • Detect unknown threats

    Proactively identify threats earlier in the cyber kill chain to minimize potential risk and exposure.

  • Leverage behavior-based detections

    Understand the latest tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK framework that bad actors are using to execute attacks.

  • Investigate and remediate

    Quickly contain, respond and discover the root cause of threats to reduce exposure and ensure a thorough investigation with sound digital forensic evidence.

  • Rapidly detect threats

    Significantly reduce unnecessary downtime and the mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) while mitigating potential financial loss and reputational damage.

  • Extend visibility beyond the endpoint

    Ingest any log source and develop correlations between desktops, laptops, servers, firewall logs, IoT devices, IDS logs, proxy logs and more.

Business impacts

  • Alert fatigue

    Security analysts manually verify thousands of alerts a day, many registering false positives. The resulting noise distracts teams and increases the risk of missing a legitimate threat. Prioritize actionable threats to reduce alert fatigue.

  • Hidden attacks

    SOC managers need to mitigate unknown threats before attackers can cause damage. But, outdated solutions lack visibility into endpoint, network and other log sources, allowing threats to stay hidden. Eliminate blind spots with managed XDR services.

  • Email threats

    Phishing attacks have evolved in volume and sophistication. Without advanced tools, security managers are blind to threats lurking in employee email communications. Correlate email threats to quickly identify malicious activity.

  • Threat hunting

    Security analysts need to find threats before they pose a problem. Passive, alert-based technologies require manual verification and response to each detection, which keeps teams on the defensive. Proactively hunt threats and close vulnerabilities.

  • Cloud security

    SOC managers are responsible for protecting cloud environments. Legacy solutions are unable to see beyond endpoints, preventing teams from protecting assets in the cloud and across the enterprise. Protect all assets with holistic threat detection.

  • Cyber skills gap

    Security teams must defend against and investigate high volumes of cyber threats each day. Staff, skill and experience shortages limit teams’ ability to counter threats. Scale and strengthen the organizations’ security posture with MxDR services.
