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.
