With large-scale cyber incidents now hitting the news almost daily, there is no denying organisation’s are more exposed than ever to more frequent and more sophisticated attacks.

Whilst Managed IT Support provides a baseline level of security coverage that is focused on Protecting your valuable assets, fighting back against the scale and speed of cyber threats and active adversaries today takes much more – it takes a proactive, managed approach to cyber threat detection and response.

Managed Cyber Threat Detection & Response

Managed Cyber Threat Detection and Response (MDR) is the key missing piece of the puzzle for many organisations when it comes to IT Security.

Managed Detection & Response (MDR)

What does MDR do that other security tools cannot?

Managed Detection and Response is what takes your security tools from Protect & Defend stance into Meet & Defeat mode! MDR enables automated telemetry collection from your connected assets.

This telemetry data is continuously analysed for signals indicating potential or live cyber threat activity. If malicious activity is detected, a case is immediately created, the threat verified by human review, and then the threat is proactively contained and neutralised, generally all within a matter of minutes!

Vulnerability Scanning

Is a vulnerability different from a threat?

Great question! And yes, it is! Whilst a threat is considered suspected or known malicious activity that directly poses a threat to your environment, a vulnerability is essentially a whole or a gap in your security protections that you may not know is there, but leaves you open to attack or exploit.

Vulnerability scanning, to provide an initial assessment of your environment, and ongoing to highlight new gaps that may arise over time, is critical to the continual improvement of your cyber security posture.

After all, prevention is better than a cure!

Threat Hunting

What’s the difference between threat detection and threat hunting?

Imagine you’re a detective tasked with finding a missing person. It might be the case that someone or something leaves some clues for you that point you in the right direction – a lead if you will. Or you might be dealing with a cold case, you’re flying lead-less, but using your expertise and experience to methodically search for evidence and clues.

In the same way, threat detection relies on clues offered up by the telemetry collected from your connected services, whilst threat hunting involves a real person, a cyber investigator, with eyes on glass and hands on keyboard, hunting for clues and cross referencing signals to detect what other tools cannot.

Sure up your cyber coverage

Will this help us with Cyber Insurance?

Insurers and their underwriters today require increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity control measures to be in place as a condition of providing cover. Why? Because naturally it’s in any insurer’s best interests to ensure their clients have done everything they can to reduce the likelihood that they will experience a major cyber incident and then make a claim on their cyber insurance policy! 

Managed IT Security allows you to tick those boxes Cyber Insurers want ticked off most, and gives you access to more comprehensive forensics and data in the event that you do need to make a claim.
