Comprehensive cybersecurity sounds like an impossible-to-achieve oxymoron in today’s highly digital and vulnerable world. But it’s not. We partner with Arctic Wolf to provide comprehensive managed detection and response for your business with 24x7 monitoring that provides on-going, behind-the- scenes vulnerability assessment, threat analysis, and incident response. Here’s how it works.

The pillars of this solution are network inspections, log analysis and search functions, threat detection, cloud security, 24x7 monitoring, managed containment, endpoint visibility, and incident response. Let’s dive in and explore what these mean in terms of protecting your business.

Network Inspections- Simply put, the network inspections provide continuous network traffic inspections that detect malicious activity to/from suspicious IP addresses and domains. Network inspections give our team a heads-up if there’s a big threat lurking around your network.

Log Analysis & Search- This is where the system automatically collects, normalizes, analyzes, and retains log data from existing networks, systems, and applications to prevent future attacks and minimize the impact of this one.

Threat Detection- Identifies malicious files/EXEs, malicious traffic, bad IP addresses/domains, and east/west movement through Windows event log and system monitoring.

Cloud Security- Monitors cloud services, SaaS apps, IaaS infrastructure, and SecaaS services to identify malicious user activity.

24x7 Monitoring- A cloud-based SOC staff of trained security analysis monitors your on-premises and cloud resources 24x7. So, it’s always working, even if you’re not.

Managed Containment- This is a critical feature that detects indicators of compromise and prevents the spread of the threats. It essentially locks down compromised areas of your network to isolate the attack.

Endpoint Visibility- Our unified endpoint technology provides operational metrics, asset categorization, threat visibility, and detection and response.

Incident Response- Identifies critical security incidents from millions of suspicious investigations, escalates responses, and proposes remediation action.

If your business already has a similar solution deployed and you are managing it in-house, research shows teams only respond to approximately half the alerts they see daily. And with 41% of organizations seeing more than 10,000 alerts every day, too often, the doors are wide open for attackers. These inadequate defenses come with a significant price tag that affects both the top and bottom lines. On average, cybercrime costs global organizations $11.7 million per year. Additionally, the costs of data breaches continue to escalate — currently reaching $148 per record or an average of $3.86 million per breach. Managed detection and response (MDR) are an increasingly popular approach that addresses these security monitoring challenges, as it delivers real-time, 24x7 managed detection and response using a holistic, turnkey approach. As a cost-effective alternative to building an in-house security operations center (SOC), MDR protects against advanced threats and enables organizations of all sizes to follow cybersecurity best practices even within resource constraints.
