The unfortunate truth is that sometimes antivirus software needs a boost in order to stop threats in their tracks, which is using Managed Detection & Response. By utilizing behavior-based AI software, Managed Detection & Response (MDR) offers advanced network protection that is not possible with antivirus alone. With these solutions paired together, your business can now benefit from incredibly effective (and affordable) security.
The MDR platform is an agent that is deployed on endpoints within the network that will begin to gather user and entity behaviors in order to determine when there is suspicious activity within the network. MDR doesn’t stop at gathering information – the data is monitored around the clock by a team of cybersecurity professionals in a 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC). Over time, this team will learn your environment to better detect and analyze advanced threat patterns and alert clients when threats are identified.
What Does MDR Do?
- Superior threat detection that is tested by past-life hackers
- Detection of anomalies in activity, advanced threats, lateral movements, unusual privilege escalation, PowerShell injections, and more
- Automated response features for incident responses
- Accelerates investigation and remediation by the 24/7 monitoring team
Dashboard & Metrics:
- Continuously collecting, recording, and storing endpoint data to give you surveillance-like visibility
- Proactive detection, device monitoring, and blocking of malware and any day-zero exploits
- Detects honeypots and decoys
A Managed Service Provider or you as a business owner can use MDRs to take action based on the information provided. The metrics give you everything you need to identify behavior patterns, threats within your network, and possible dangerous trends on the horizon. In many cases, ransomware can remain dormant within a network for months before it becomes a real problem, so it is imperative to detect suspicious activity early.
