for Managed Detection and Response Services

Pondurance recognized as a Representative Vendor for the second consecutive year  

INDIANAPOLIS – November 16, 2021: Pondurance, a leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, today announced it has been identified as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner 2021 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services1. This is the second year in a row that Pondurance has been named in the Gartner report, demonstrating the company’s leadership position in this fast-growing cybersecurity market segment.

“We are thrilled to be recognized again by Gartner in the 2021 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services. We believe we are well aligned with the report’s guidance on what to expect from a MDR services provider,” said Pondurance Chief Strategy Officer Lyndon Brown. “We also believe that our inclusion underscores our commitment to helping every organization successfully detect and respond to cyber threats, regardless of their size, industry or current in-house capabilities. Pondurance has positioned itself as the go-to solution for rapidly identifying and mitigating cyberattacks, reducing technical and operational vulnerabilities, and improving overall cyber risk posture.”

MDR is now having a meaningful impact on enterprises seeking to better secure their operations. The Gartner report notes that, “by 2025, 50% of organizations will be using MDR services for threat monitoring, detection and response functions that offer threat containment and mitigation capabilities.”

The report states: “A key value proposition of MDR is performing the initial mitigation steps when a threat is identified to enable an effective incident response and remediation process. By providing deeper investigation, analysis and validation of threats, and taking action to disrupt or contain an attack, the MDR provider can buy time for the customer to perform further investigation and remediation.”

By providing proactive, always-on 24/7/365 managed detection and response, powered by skilled experts who utilize an advanced, open cloud-native platform, Pondurance prevents active threats, reduces time to respond and continuously mitigates cyber risk. This in turn frees up the time and resources organizations need for digital transformation, cloud adoption, growing their businesses and serving their customers.
