MDR Services for 24/7 network monitoring

MDR services deliver actionable outcomes by 24/7 examining and monitoring network traffic flows for vulnerabilities and providing organizations with the necessary tools, technologies, and expertise to detect, investigate, and respond to security incidents quickly and effectively.

Such Managed Detection and Response Services help organizations get information of full threat management lifecycle, reduce the time to detect and respond to security incidents, minimize the impact of security breaches, and improve their overall cybersecurity posture. Threat hunting and incident management capabilities provided by cloud-managed MDR vendors provide attack telemetry alongwith relevant logs, data and contextual information to focus on critical security issues and improve overall organizational security.

Here is a tabular comparison of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) based on key differences:
