Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

Businesses face many challenges trying to secure their assets.
Why?

There aren't
enough people.

Given the seriousness of the challenge, businesses are throwing a lot of money at a solution, but there isn’t enough money in the world to hire people that don’t exist. And those that do exist, don’t have the proper training to thwart real threats.

There's too much
reliance on technology.

We’re in a technological arms race, and solutions are getting more expensive and less effective. Technology requires constant upgrades and staff to keep up with human opponents who are always evolving.

WE HAVE A BETTER WAY.

Threat Hunting + Response (TH+R)

Pondurance TH+R is NOT just another Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution. We have deliberately integrated the best tech with the best human intelligence to drive the most composite and dynamic level of Managed Detection and Response available in the market.  The confluence of that is what we call Authentic Intelligence, which represents the most effective form of A.I.  This allows us to keep you one step ahead of attackers and protect your digital assets.

Authentic Intelligence. Better Outcomes.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Let’s get real. SIEMs weren’t designed for middle market consumers. While a traditional SIEM solution can look appealing, successful execution requires experiences, full-time human resources to weed out multitudes of false positives. On top of hiring a team of trained experts with a historically high turnover rate, the technology investment requires constant maintenance, updating, upgrading, and training your talent to stay on top of the latest threats is expensive and time consuming. 

Budgets are in place for a reason: to establish a reasonable threshold for expenses. The trouble with cyber security budgeting and forecasting is the lack of reliable historical data. Cyber security is a new line item, relatively speaking. And, security budgets have not evolved to cover the true scope of technology and human capital requirements.

Despite the rising costs of cyber security technology, security programs are routinely under-funded, which often means they are also understaffed. This leaves many CISOs and other IT Leadership without adequate security resources. They have to do more with less. To make matters worse, security professionals have struggled to communicate the need for budget increases to the C-suite unless—or rather, until—there is a problem. When things look good, many companies find it hard to justify keeping security positions, and when things are bad, jobs are on the line. Unfortunately, the cost of a crisis far exceeds what could have been spent to prevent it.

How it Works

Why Pondurance?

We help balance out a reliance on technology.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence tools are leveraged by both attackers and defenders. When such parity is achieved, the advantage is with the Attacker, as they only have to be correct once to successfully effectuate an exploit, whereas Defenders must be correct at all times.

Cybersecurity will, therefore, always be a human battle, and both ML and AI have to be used as force multipliers – not a replacement. 

Our experience is a differentiator.

Our efforts have helped authorities on the state and national level track down cyber criminals and unveil numerous zero day vulnerabilities. While attribution is not a primary objective, we are proud of our record to be able to bring bad actors to justice where we can. It’s our way of helping the community. 

This connection at the state level and with the FBI makes us a strong partner to have on your side. 

We’re always on, and we always collaborate.

Your SOC never takes a vacation, which is an invaluable prospect to consider if you are managing threat monitoring internally. Backing up our team of 24/7 threat hunters, our consulting team has over 250 years of combined cybersecurity experience in a variety of industries. The collaboration of our offensive (pen testing) and defensive (SOC) teams drive instant value that keep our threat hunters on the cutting edge of the newest exploits and techniques.

We are truly a team of experts with all eyes on our clients’ security.
