Welcome to the SWITCHPOINT NV/SA Blog. We're here to keep you up-to-date with all the latest happenings around our company, the people, solutions and technology.

What Is Managed Detection and Response (MDR)?

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) denotes outsourced cybersecurity services designed to protect your data and assets even if a threat eludes common organizational security controls. An MDR security platform is considered an advanced 24/7 security control that often includes a range of fundamental security activities including cloud-managed security for organizations that cannot maintain their own security operations center. MDR services combine advanced analytics, threat intelligence, and human expertise in incident investigation and response deployed at the host and network levels.

Why You Need MDR Services For Your Cybersecurity Plan?
MDR came as a successor of MSS with advanced offers and security intelligence, because of the need for companies who lack the financial and time resources to be more prepared for risks, improving their ability to swiftly detect and respond to cybersecurity threats. It is predicted that 20% of mid sized businesses and bigger corporations will be using MDR services by 2021- a big leap from the less than 1% of companies that are currently using them. This is because MDR in cybersecurity will provide more security help than other services. 

Here are five reasons why you need SWITCHPOINT MDR services for your cybersecurity plan:

There is an instant hunt down function that utilizes advanced behavioral and high-tech endpoint analytics and statistics to hunt for unknown threats before they obtain your company’s database and network. SWITCHPOINT MDR enhances your company’s ability to automatically detect the latest threat act that preventative cybersecurity solutions such as antivirus and firewalls software may easily miss.

This is more effective than the traditional managed service that simply passes unverified alerts.
