Monitor your security with MDR
Most cybersecurity attacks today aren’t traditional viruses. Cybercriminals are using file-less malware that runs in memory, and hackers are exploiting software vulnerabilities to gain access to your systems.
Cybercriminals have also proven that all organizations are fair game. It doesn’t matter if your data has value to others. Ransomware attacks are based on the idea that your data has value to you.
With ransomware and other modern attacks having become so sophisticated that they can evade detection from traditional antivirus technologies, your organization needs automated/artificial intelligence-based solutions that can identify non-normal activity occurring within your computers and networks.
That’s where managed detection and response (MDR) comes into play. It leverages automation and outsourced specialists to monitor your environment, identify security incidents and respond quickly to mitigate threats and evict attackers. It’s also much more cost-effective than hiring and retaining dedicated security operations staff.
- Select an MDR solution: Choose a solution that aligns with your organization’s needs. If you have cybersecurity insurance, note that carriers are increasingly requiring their policy holders to have specialized software called endpoint detection and response (EDR). This is a component of any MDR service, so it will help you meet the requirements from your insurance carrier.
- Engage a managed security services provider: This provider can supplement your team and provide the expertise to identify threats in your network.
Monitor your entire attack surface: Ensure your MDR solution and team are monitoring all your assets — both on premises and in the cloud.
