Netsurion, a leading managed security service provider (MSSP), today announced it has been recognized as a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Managed Detection and Response Services 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc # US48129921, August 2021).
MDR is especially crucial given today’s ever-increasing cyberattacks like ransomware coupled with the difficulty in retaining cybersecurity staff. MDR is about achieving cybersecurity that is both powerful and practical. This makes the IDC MarketScape extremely timely for organizations looking to make the best possible MDR choice for their unique needs.
- Aaron Branson, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Netsurion
IDC sees MDR as the “next generation of managed security services.” It defines the core services an MDR must provide as follows: 24/7 monitoring, integration of threat intelligence, extended detection and response (XDR) for endpoint, network, cloud, or messaging systems; integrated threat intelligence; regular use of human-led threat hunting; remote incident response; and the intellectual property (IP) of the methodology and procedures needed to pull these systems into a deliverable service.
Netsurion Managed Threat Protection, the company’s flagship MDR offering, is based on its EventTracker platform which boasts Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Intrusion Detection (IDS), Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) and vulnerability management. Netsurion Managed Threat Protection includes a 24/7 ISO-certified Security Operations Center (SOC), providing threat hunting and incident response support around the technology. It safeguards over one million endpoints and analyzes over seventy-five billion events per week.
The company also provides Netsurion Secure Edge Networking, a complete managed network security solution architected to solve security, agility, resilience, and compliance needs at the branch locations of multi-location businesses, powering more than 16,000 retail stores today.
