What is Managed Detection & Response?

Small to medium sized businesses are the most vulnerable to cyber-attacks, with a 600% increase in cybercrime post-pandemic. You may be wondering, “What can I do to help reduce the risk of my business being attacked?” If you are asking yourself this question, you’re in the right place. Having a cybersecurity strategy that includes Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and working closely with your Managed Service Provider (MSP) can significantly reduce your vulnerabilities and protect your success.

What is Managed Detection & Response (MDR)?

Managed Detection and Response is a fully managed cyber security service and safety stack that is added to your current IT plan that you have with your Managed Service Provider. This safety stack consists of a bundle of tools that assist and protect your business from inside and outside activity. For example, we bundle multiple tools into one “stack” that is ever-evolving as the cyber world continues to change and threats advance. Think of a stack of pancakes, with each pancake in the stack representing a different tool. All of these tools are stacked on top of each other to create one full bundle.

How does MDR Work in My Business?

We’re glad you asked! MDR is a tool that works in a circular formation. This tool detects a compromise, analyzes the threat, responds to the situation, and remediates the issue. MDR is your front line to protecting your business and must be used to proactively monitor your systems and users. To see a thorough visual explanation of MDR and how it works, you can watch our YouTube video HERE.

Why is MDR Right for my Business?

Adding another service to your agreement with your MSP may be overwhelming, but the purpose of a new tool is to help you further your business without having to worry about the “behind the scenes” attacks. We have your back. MDR with the right Service Provider will come accompanied with a team that has a deep expertise aligned to your organization’s cybersecurity requirements. There should be analysts monitoring your network of threats and utilizing advanced analytics for threat intelligence. MDR is not just another tool, it’s your business’ safety net to success.
