What is MDR?

MDR is a specialized service where organizations outsource their threat-hunting and response activities. It involves a vital human element as security providers provide access to a team of skilled security researchers and engineers responsible for actively monitoring networks, analyzing incidents, and promptly responding to security cases. This collaborative approach allows organizations to benefit from the expertise and resources of the MDR service provider, ensuring efficient threat detection and effective response measures. By leveraging this outsourced service, organizations can enhance their security capabilities and focus on their core business activities, while relying on dedicated professionals to safeguard their networks and promptly address emerging threats.
