Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services

15 July, 2019

According to Gartner, “MDR services add 24/7 threat monitoring, detection and response capabilities to security operations capabilities via an outcome-oriented approach.”

Some of Gartner's recommendations from the report include...

  • "Use MDR services to add 24/7 threat detection and incident investigation and response capabilities, when they don’t exist or are immature. Internal resources will still be needed for some response activities, and incident response retainers will be necessary for additional support as well."
  • "Leverage MDR providers that also offer services that will fill in other gaps in their foundational security operations capabilities, like vulnerability management and log management."
