Managed Detection & Response (MDR)

Managed Detection & Response (MDR).

Humans and conventional systems aren’t quick enough, or sophisticated enough to detect complex threats that are hidden amongst huge amounts of information.
Attacks are becoming more complex and subtle, to stay ahead of cyber threats you need the right technology, skill set, and knowledge.

The range and sophistication of cyber threats is growing at a rapid pace. Public and private sector organisations are being bombarded by these threats on a near daily basis.

With more data being passed than ever before and networks becoming more distributed, it’s difficult for companies to keep up with the pace of cyber-crime. As we all know cyber criminals only have to get it right once to breach and infiltrate a business.

Businesses frequently don’t have the skills, technology or on-site facilities to effectively stay on top of this ever-increasing threat of attack.


Without understanding exactly what security solutions to use or how to use them, and without having the skilled personnel to make the right strategic decisions in various scenarios, you’ll be vulnerable.

Once a company identifies a breach, remediation efforts and their associated costs need to be factored in. These include, securing the network, crisis management, audits and handling investigations. The costs associated with these are not just in-house man hours, but also the expense of third-party specialists, and if required, any technology investments that need to be made.

Finally, let’s not forget that 44% of consumers in the UK say that they won’t spend money on a company while it’s the victim of a cyber breach.

In the UK, cyber-crime increased drastically during the Covid-19 pandemic, with a 31% increase seen between May and June 2020.

The longer it takes to detect a breach, the higher the repair cost. Full visibility, analysing data from multiple sources across your network and correlating suspicious behaviour with global threat intelligence feeds is the best way to detect threats early on. 

Detection is one thing, but the time-lapse between detection and response is a huge factor in impact and cost. Adding automation in your security systems allows you to create pre-defined actions depending on the type of activity detected.

Running a suitable cybersecurity operation in-house involves significant investment. Although this is what is required for many organisations, the costs pile up and become unviable, leaving businesses at risk.

Are your internal policies being followed? Do you meet your regulatory requirements? Are you sure? Meet compliance standards and regulations by providing all the data and information needed to underpin any legal, internal or forensic investigations.
