Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services

June 11, 2018

According to Gartner, approximately 25% of all inquiries in 2017 related to acquiring security event monitoring services were specifically about MDR. 

MDR services allow organizations to add 24/7 dedicated threat monitoring, detection and response capabilities via a turnkey approach. 

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

  • Use MDR services to add threat detection, lightweight incident response, and 24/7 monitoring capabilities when they don't exist or are immature within an organization.
  • Scrutinize how providers deliver services to ensure the technology stack fits well with existing security technology investments and the entire IT environment, from on-premises to cloud.
