When company operations are compromised by a cybersecurity incident, it’s often because internal IT teams simply haven’t had the time, resources and security expertise to properly develop a security posture in line with industry best practices.

Managed detection and response (MDR) services are the ideal solution to this common business security problem.

What is Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Security?

With MDR services, your organization can protect valuable data and assets from the evolving threat landscape without overly burdening your internal IT department with responsibilities beyond their capabilities. 

An MDR provider can help your organization minimize the risk of a security incident by delivering around-the-clock security monitoring and threat hunting services at all levels, while human investigation incident response teams manage and remediate security events in real time. 

At Commerx, our partnership with Artic Wolf’s managed detection and response (MDR) services provides our customers with are Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II certified. This designation signifies that the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentialityconfidentiality, and privacy of our MDR service has been independently verified. This provides additional peace of mind to professional service providers and consulting services.

security operations center (SOC) is an essential element for managed security services providers (MSSPs). But SOCs are expensive, complicated, and often far beyond the reach of most small to midsize enterprises. Many take the easy route and invest in products, however an investment in new security products is no guarantee of security.

What Challenges can a MDR Provider Address?

In recent years, businesses from all sectors have noticed an increase in the type, scale and sophistication of cybercriminals and their attacks. This trend shows no signs of abating, and it will result in many organizations struggling to keep pace with the investments in human and technical resources that will be required to protect their environments.

MDR services provide a full suite of advanced security services that organizations can leverage to support the internal security teams and reinforce their defenses without incurring the capital investment costs associated with the development and implementation of an internal security operations center.

Cutting Edge Incident Response

The increasing cost of human expertise and experience, along with growing demands for new security tools and software licenses, will make the development of a comprehensive cybersecurity program cost prohibitive for many organizations.

What’s more, as security threats become more advanced, organizations will have greater challenges filling specialized IT security roles. Security expertise will be in greater demand across the labour market, which will make it more difficult to find and retain top IT talent.

In many cases, novel security threats or ongoing incidents lurk undetected by traditional security mechanisms for far too long. Through proactive threat hunting and intelligence gathering, MDR providers deliver cutting-edge incident response to help prevent and minimize their potential impact.

Through a relationship with a MDR service provider, companies can supplement their teams with external cybersecurity expertise to implement organization-wide security controls at significantly reduced costs than an internally developed solution.

Benefits of Managed Detection and Response Services

An MDR provider can help companies get on the fast track to organizational security maturity. Particularly for a company with limited internal resources, MDR offers the prospect of improved network security, analytics on security events and event management services at a lower cost than would be possible internally

In addition to helping manage overall IT spend, MDR services offer many operational advantages, including:

  • Improved network security monitoring, threat detection and security response procedures and protocols

  • The ability to leverage trusted security expertise without putting additional strain on internal human resources

  • Regular, proactive network inspections

  • Threat response log management, analysis and research

  • Improved threat detection intelligence

  • Managed containment and incident remediation procedures

  • Improved security compliance and monthly reporting
