Managed Detection and Response (MDR) comprises of network host and endpoint-based security services, which are outsourced by enterprises and managed by third-party vendors. MDR provides 24*7 security control, rapid incident response, threat discovery, investigates, contains, and eliminates threats to protect and secure organizations’ assets and sensitive data. A robust MDR solution provides protection from fileless malware and phishing attacks, defends the business against external and insider attempts to exfiltrate data, quickly responds to a security incident, and validates suspicious activity on endpoints. MDR providers leverage real attack data to improve the organization’s overall security posture by protecting it from threats. A typical MDR solution should provide the capabilities to investigate endpoints and offer the ability to search for historical information about endpoints use indicators of compromise to root out threats on endpoints, and   automatically detect threats.
