Managed Detection & Response FAQ’s

What is Managed Detection and Response?

Managed Deception & Response is a managed cyber security service that protects organisations from malicious activity across their networks and provides rapid incident response and remediation  to eliminate those threats .

Is MDR a platform or a service?

MDR is a service, and most providers typically offer two different approaches:

  1. A fully managed service: The MDR service provider offers a full managed service. on a customer’s behalf, utilising their security experts and analysts to quickly investigate and respond to threats
  2. A supported service: The MDR service provider undertakes the threat hunting activity and then notifies and guides your in-house security team through the containment and remediation process.

What does a fully managed MDR service consist of?

A fully managed MDR service provides advanced threat intelligence, threat hunting, security monitoring, incident analysis, and incident response.

MDR combines cyber security experts with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning technology, to:

  • Hunt and detect threats in real time – including targeted threats and internal threats.

They will assess your risks and advise you on what your company requires, then work with you to implement and where necessary, manage cyber security solutions. Read this blog post to learn what an MSSP does, and the benefits of employing one.

Do I need MDR if I have a Firewall and/or a Managed Firewall Service?

Firewalls are often the first line of defence in safeguarding a business from malicious threats, preventing unauthorised users, devices, software and applications from entering your network.

Sophisticated attacks can still infiltrate your network, so whilst firewalls and Managed Firewall Services are considered a fundamental part of a cyber security strategy, they are not to be relied on alone.

How does an MDR service differ from a managed SIEM solution?

MDR differs from a SIEM solution (Security Information and Event Management) because it actively focuses on threat detection and remediation, whereas a managed SIEM solution collects, consolidates and analyses data from a variety of sources across your IT infrastructure into a centralised platform, providing a clear view of events and threats.

How does MDR differ from EDR?

MDR and EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) are two different security solutions.

An EDR security solution is focused solely on endpoint security, while an MDR service includes protection of both the endpoint and the network, therefore they can work together to fill security gaps. MDR can leverage EDR’s technologies in order to enhance its threat detection, analysis, and response capabilities and most providers will use EDR functionality to ensure maximum visibility across the entire network, ensuring that threats and breaches can be quickly detected and responded to.

Can MDR work alongside SIEM and EDR solutions?

Leading technology research firm Gartner recommends using Managed Detection & Response services to augment existing security monitoring capabilities.

Therefore Firewalls, SIEM, EDR and MDR can all be utilised as part of a comprehensive cyber security strategy to close the gaps in your threat detection and incident response.

Who can benefit from a Managed Detection & Response service?

Put simply, every organisation of every size. An MDR service ensures that you have round-the-clock access to cyber security experts to quickly deal with cyber threats in real time, and as such organisations of all sizes across all industries can realise the benefits of MDR.

In the absence of an MDR service, most organisations will rely on over stretched IT generalists/departments utilising email alerts and legacy tools, such as anti virus and firewalls to identify and mitigate against cyber threats. This runs the risk of sophisticated threats infiltrating your network and causing immense damage before they are discovered and dealt with.
