Protection in a challenging landscape

Cybersecurity leaders are increasing their investments in security operations due to a growing need to support transformative technology, migrate on-premises systems to hybrid and multi-cloud environments and support distributed workforces in the post-pandemic world.

Meanwhile vulnerabilities continue to be exploited by threat actors who continue to evolve tactics, techniques and procedures, taking the easiest pathways to make a profit, targeting organisations of all sizes.

Cybersecurity programs need to be staffed and ready to detect threats and respond to attacks around the clock, yet experienced cybersecurity talent is in short supply.

Managed Detection and Response can help if you’re struggling with these challenges

  • The breadth and depth of the cybercrime ecosystem continues to expand, I need protection quickly. I want confidence that I have the threat coverage to support me now and that we can adapt quickly to change.

  • I know we need to develop our ability to detect and respond to threats, but I don’t have the in-house capability or resources to achieve it. I need a simple, consumable, outcome-based user experience operated by experts.

  • I need a high value detection and response function that delivers outcomes. I don’t have time to develop and realise the value of SIEM or my EDR, I just want use cases covered and outcomes delivered.

Managed Detection and Response Threat Packs

While Managed Detection and Response is an excellent solution to get comprehensive coverage from the most prevalent threats quickly, however, we understand that every business is different and every business changes and evolves over time, as does the threat landscape. It is for this reason we have developed additional MDR Threat Packs that allow you to increase your coverage to include new or different threats, as well as adapting to changes to your business operating environment.


Example Threat Packs include:

Insider Threat Pack

Using indicators such as unusual activity times, traffic volumes and unusual access patterns, this pack extends your coverage to focus on internal threats such as risky user behaviour and data loss emanating from inside your organisation.

Cloud Threat Pack

This pack extends MDR further into your Azure environment, providing Detection and Response coverage for the Azure network layer and enterprise services.

“Increase your threat coverage when and where you need it.”
