Managed detection and response services provide customers with modern remotely distributed security operations center (MSOC) functions. These functions allow organizations to detect, analyze, investigate and actively respond quickly by mitigating and containing threats. Your environment is monitored 24 hours a day to detect threats and risks, allowing you to focus on other important areas of your business. Detect advanced threats that are not detected by other approaches with a platform that analyzes more security data and an experienced team that knows how to search for it.
Often referred to as “managed EDR”, managed prioritization applies automated rules and human inspection to distinguish benign events and false positives from true threats. In addition, a proactive threat search is carried out to detect new types of threats and attacks at various stages. Managed prioritization helps organizations faced with the daily effort of analyzing their enormous volume of alerts to determine which ones they should address first. EDR refers to terminal detection and response and to solutions that record behaviors at the terminal level using installed agents or sensors and use data analysis to detect suspicious or anomalous activities and block them.
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a cybersecurity service that combines technology and human expertise to detect, monitor and respond to threats. MDR integrates EDR tools into its security implementation, making them an integral part of the detection, analysis and response functions. Relevant threat information, advanced analysis and forensic data are transmitted to human analysts, who evaluate alerts and determine the appropriate response to reduce the impact and risk of positive incidents. The customer is responsible for carrying out those activities, which may require specialized knowledge that is often not maintained internally.
The EDR records and stores behaviors and events at endpoints and enters them into automated rule-based analysis and response systems. These experts are on-call 24 hours a day, so they can respond quickly based on their knowledge of all aspects of terminal security, from detection to restoring the terminal to a state of proven functionality and avoiding greater risks. XDR is an extended detection and response system that collects data from any source (endpoint, cloud, network, identity, etc.) to provide complete visibility and stop known and unknown threats in more than just the terminal. Generally, a terminal detection and response (EDR) tool provides the necessary visibility into security events in the terminal.
We work with you on detection, response and correction to validate that the threat has been neutralized and verify that it has not returned. Unlike MDR providers, which can detect lateral movement within a network, MSSPs usually work with perimeter-based technology and rule-based detections to identify threats. Managed investigation services help organizations understand threats more quickly by enriching security alerts with additional context. Companies also face challenges in implementing complex terminal detection and response (EDR) solutions, which are usually not maximized due to a lack of time, skills and funding to train staff in the use of EDR tools.
