Managed Detection & Response

Managed Detection & Response (MDR)

Why use Managed Detection & Response?

A recent report by IBM on Mean Time to Respond (MTTR) shows that on average it takes 280 days to detect and respond to a security incident. However, identifying and remediating key weaknesses in networks, cloud systems, or external services can force attackers into errors which will reduce their chances of success and increase detection rates.

The number of successful cyber-attacks against organisations has never been greater. Criminals remain determined to pursue financial gain through Fraud and Identity Theft, Extortion (Ransomware), and Data Theft. The challenge to protect your critical assets from an attack can seem overwhelming.

A Security Operations Centre (SOC) is now an essential part of any protection plan and data protection system that reduces the level of exposure of information systems to both external and internal risks. Without a Managed Detection & Response service, cybercriminal attacks can remain hidden for a long time as companies may not have the skills to detect and respond to threats in a timely manner.

Introducing Managed Detection & Response from ZeroDayLab

We live in an era where blind spots in detecting and reacting to early indicators of compromise can be punishing. For many organisations, it can be difficult to configure and design effective security monitoring in-house.

Alerts can often be overwhelming and difficult to understand resulting in a confusing environment. Without a focus on detecting new and unseen attacks, organisations are left exposed and vulnerable to large scale breaches and the full spectrum of associated potential damage. Thus regulators, organisations, and business stakeholders are seeking next generation solutions that provide clearer, less static, and more responsive and auditable protection.

The best approach to proactive cyber security requires both technology that can identify potential attacks and skilled cyber security analysts. This approach can be found in the ZeroDayLab Managed Detection & Response (MDR) Service. ZeroDayLab has adopted a ‘Detection-in- Depth’ approach, based on NCSC’s Good Practice Guide 13 controls. This approach will detect more than just yesterday’s threats and provide coverage over each stage of the MITRE ATT&CK Framework.

The MDR Service provides proactive alerting and is built around the capability of the expert analysts to take immediate, preventative, and protective measures in the event of a security incident. The service has been developed using Elastic Stack and utilises software agents as well as virtual “collectors” to receive syslog data from network appliances, collect log data from the Cloud services through APIs and provide network monitoring to detect and respond to threats traversing network boundaries.

After the initial onboarding of 3-4 weeks, you will be provided information regarding potential threats and our rapid deployment techniques mean that we can supply agents within days.
