Arctic Wolf Recognized in Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services

Managed detection and response (MDR) services is an emerging group of security monitoring providers with approaches that do not fit the traditional MSS model.

Key findings from the report:

  • Organizations struggle to deploy, manage and use an effective combination of expertise and tools to detect threats, especially targeted advanced threats and insider threats.
  • A growing number of providers are offering outcome-­based services that differ from traditional managed security services (MSSs) offerings, because they are focused on detecting previously undetected threats that have breached an organization's perimeter and are moving laterally through the IT environment.
  • MDR services are not delivered by the majority of MSSPs today, but this is changing.
