“Organizations of all sizes that have not invested in threat detection and response capabilities are at risk, due to increasingly hostile external threats. This situation combined with the challenge of finding, acquiring and retaining the necessary expertise and the right tools, makes building an adequate internal capability challenging. MDR services reduce the complexity of identifying the right mix of people, processes and technology by enabling buyers to buy capabilities directly from service providers.”
