The security solutions market is growing about as fast as cybercriminals are coming up with new ways to attack. When you’re shopping for a new solution, how do you know what to prioritize? Which solution is right for you? Could managed detection and response (MDR) solutions be the answer you’ve been looking for?

Keep these 10 things in mind when you’re hunting for a new provider:

The security landscape is evolving, so you need to be prepared for anything

Modern attacks can be hard to identify, and bad actors sit dormant for a long time

There’s a visibility problem with blind spots and an inability to monitor all attack points in detail

MSSP, SIEM, and MDR bring different things to the table; some have more tools and some are more of a  service

MDR accelerates the incident response life cycle, bringing you back to normal operations faster

Not all MDR solutions are created equal; some may specialize in monitoring and analyzing network-related threats while others focus on endpoint detection and response

Human expertise is key to catch things the security tools don’t

Modern MDR is always on and always available (24/7)

Modern MDR complements existing security tools; no need to ditch your current tech stack

Modern MDR can evolve with the ever changing security landscape with security experts on staff

MDR solutions set themselves apart from other security services as it combines the human element with technology to provide true 24/7 coverage against any threat. Learn more about MDR in the first-ever MDR for Dummies Guide.
