2017 Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services recognizes Arctic Wolf Networks

Gartner published their updated market guide for Managed detection and response (MDR) services on May 31, 2017. Arctic Wolf Networks has been recognized for a second year in a row. New players are entering the MDR market, and they expect this to continue.

Key findings from the report:

  • Organizations are looking to improve real-time detection and incident response capabilities. However, they often struggle to invest given the limited resources in people, processes and technology.
  • MDR vendors target two primary groups of buyers: 1) small or midsize businesses and small enterprises with minimal investments in security tools/staff; 2) well-invested enterprises that are investing in people and tools, but are looking for partners to augment their capabilities.
  • MDR providers are adding the ability to contain threats to existing remote incident response capabilities, primarily driven by SMB organizations that lack security teams and 24/7 IT.
