Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

Irving Hofman

Keeping up with cybersecurity is hard! Even the world’s largest corporations with multi-million dollar cybersecurity budgets cannot provide infallible prevention against hackers and cyber threats.

Systems such as antivirus, firewalls, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) are critical layers in protection, but unfortunately these are not bulletproof solutions. This is why one needs a layered approach to build a comprehensive security solution.

The latest tool in the cybersecurity arsenal is Managed Detection and Response (MDR), which utilises advanced threat detection techniques of sifting through system/network events and identifying suspicious activity via human investigation. This focuses on proactive threat hunting, but does not block incidents from occurring. By introducing manual human investigation and expertise to the security landscape, MDR fills a gap that automated systems can often miss.

When hackers infiltrate your IT infrastructure, you have two choices: wait for their actions to cause damage, or hire a "special operations team" to hunt them down before they cause any damage. MDR is like a guard dog for your IT infrastructure. When a hacker hops over your fence, the dog chases down the intruder, preventing any crime from being committed.

Exigence has now added offensive MDR capabilities to our cybersecurity offerings, so that your organisation can further reduce the risk of successful cybersecurity attacks. The best news of all is that you can do so without "breaking the bank".

Cybersecurity failures can be very costly. Downtime, liability, remediation costs, and loss of reputation can inflict significant damage on an organisation. Talk with our team to find out more about how MDR can guard against disaster.
