Managed Extended Detection and Response

Proactively detect and remediate unknown cyber threats

Watch to see how organizations can detect and respond to advanced attacks

Attackers operate 365 days of the year, relentlessly carrying out attacks on organizations of all sizes and across all industries. Relying on indicators of compromise is no longer sufficient to handle today’s sophisticated attacks.

Managed Extended Detection and Response (MxDR) solutions leverage advanced workflows, correlating information from across an organization’s environment, to investigate and prioritize alerts and enable internal teams to focus on business operations.

Key benefits

Impact business and achieve better results.

Read the overview
  • Improve SOC staff efficiency

    Combine advanced technologies with experienced security personnel to improve 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) that are 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.

  • 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 But, outdated solutions lack visibility into endpoint, network and other log sources, allowing threats to stay hidden.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 across the network.

  • 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.
