Managed detection & response

Detecting and responding to todays world of evolving threats is a critical ability that requires continuous improvements. Do it right and your risk will decrease significantly and your productivity will go up. There is no such thing as 100% protection. Once you have accepted this statement it is time that you start adressing the threats you could not protect against with detection and response.

For years, you have invested in different types of technology to protect yourself, and you still have to reduce the risks. But for detection and response it is very hard to just buy a product to solve the problem. To be successful with detection and response requires both people, processes and technologies.

The competences and experience in these fields are different from the ones you have in your network and security management teams. That’s why it is becoming more and more common for customers to buy detection and response as an outcome based service from a trusted and established Managed Detection & Response Service Provider.

Gartner says…

According to Gartner, “organizations are looking to improve real-time threat detection and incident response capabilities; however, they often struggle to invest limited resources in the required people, processes and technology… IT security and risk management leaders involved with security monitoring and operations should: Use MDR services to implement threat detection and incident response capabilities when they don’t exist or are immature, or when approaches such as MSS haven’t met expectations.”1

“By 2020, 60% of enterprise information security budgets will be allocated for rapid detection and response approaches, up from less than 20% in 2015.”2

  • …log based detection will not find threats that does not generate any logs.
  • …network based detection can be bypassed with encryption or evasions
  • …endpoint based detection is not 100% and there are many vulnerable endpoints that will not have an agent (like printers, cameras and other type of embedded systems).

It is therefore important to start with assessing your capabilities to understand your strengths and weaknesses for both detection and response across the areas of people, processes and technologies.
