What is MDR?
As an outsourced service, Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is designed to assist organizations in need of complete or partial security operations monitoring and management. MDR generally offers 24/7 coverage, combining security technology and human expertise to remotely monitor, detect, and respond to threats. MDR is a proactive approach to cybersecurity that combines cutting-edge technology with expert human analysis to detect and respond to cyber threats in real time — and before they can cause significant damage. Unlike traditional security methods that rely on static defenses, MDR leverages advanced threat intelligence, machine learning, and behavioral analytics to continuously monitor networks, endpoints, and cloud environments for any signs of malicious activity.
One of the key advantages of outsourcing to an MDR provider is access to expert knowledge and specialized skills. MDR providers are equipped with a team of cybersecurity professionals who are well-versed in the latest threats and technologies. Additionally, outsourcing to an MDR provider can significantly reduce the burden on internal IT teams, allowing them to focus on improving operational efficiency and other strategic initiatives and while ensuring security functions are in capable hands.
Resolution Intelligence Cloud™ helps MDR providers take their services to the next level by reducing alert noise and quantifying and prioritizing alerts in the form of ActOns. With this distilled actionable intelligence, MDR providers can focus on tackling the most critical issues first. By enabling a cybersecurity mesh architecture (CSMA), the Resolution Intelligence Cloud platform also allows MDR providers to get the most out of their current tool sets.
