You only need to read the news every day to realise cyber attacks are a matter of “when” not an “if”. More and more sophisticated attacks and zero-day exploits are catching organisations off guard, circumventing legacy anti-virus. To add to that, traditional end-point solutions can be complex and require significant resources to deploy, configure and manage.
Cyber security has become a numbers game. Even if you have all the right technology and processes in place, if you don’t have the people power and expertise to monitor, filter and action incident alerts, you’re going to be quickly outnumbered by the bad guys.
With the government ramping up penalties for data breaches and tightening regulations, and customers now expecting security without compromising ease of use, organisations are struggling to find the resources to keep up. Organisations now face strict 12-hour cyber incident reporting requirements under amendments to the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018 (SOCI Act) which came into effect in 2022, meaning early breach detection is critical.
End-point Detection and Response (EDR) can help organisations identify, investigate, and respond to threats to reduce the impact of security incidents. EDR is your eyes and ears on the ground, to make sure that nothing falls through the cracks. However, this still requires a lot of resources from an organisation to manage and doesn’t cover all bases. This is where Managed Detection and Response (MDR) comes in.
Lifting the cyber security burden
Cyberattacks are becoming faster and more advanced, requiring constant monitoring, proactive hunting, and quick response to prevent harm. A lack of real-time visibility into what is happening in an organisation’s environment can make it difficult to quickly determine the nature and scope of a threat and properly and immediately respond to an incident. MDR is a proactive cybersecurity service that focuses on detecting and responding to any threats before they cause damage to an organisation.
Sekuro’s MDR offering is a combination technology, threat intelligence, and human expertise to identify and respond to security threats. Our solution includes 24/7 around-the-clock monitoring and proactive threat-hunting capabilities, areas that many in-house teams find challenging due to resource constraints.
Endpoint threats are typically the noisiest – they are the most common, but commonly also the most mundane. Your typical organisation cannot handle the sheer volume of endpoint threats whilst also looking at the bigger picture. That’s why Sekuro partners with CrowdStrike for endpoint security as part of its MDR solution.
CrowdStrike’s threat detection and response capabilities through its Falcon platform can detect threats in under a minute, conduct an investigation in under 10 minutes and provide a response in under an hour. It’s 100% cloud-native, meaning immediate time to value, and is easy to deploy, configure and maintain — all via a single, lightweight agent. CrowdStrike Falcon receives the highest detection coverage, reporting 99% of the adversary techniques in the 2022 MITRE Enguinity ATT&CK Evaluations for Security Service Providers.
Leveraging its Security Operations Centre (SOC), Sekuro provides an additional layer of expertise on top of CrowdStrike’s Falcon platform. Its highly-trained and deeply knowledgeable team of experts focuses on threats beyond endpoints and helps secure the broader environment, from applications to the cloud and the network. This means in-house teams can get on with their day jobs whilst being confident their organisation is protected from any and all cyber threats.
With threats rising at the same time as budgets are being increasingly scrutinised, Sekuro’s MDR with CrowdStrike technology provides a more cost-effective solution (Falcon Complete customers realise an average of 403% ROI in terms of OPEX savings*) than building and maintaining an in-house security team and can scale to meet changing security requirements and business needs. As organisations look for better visibility, control, and proactive protection of their environments, it’s increasingly clear they can’t do it all on their own. But you don’t need to detect and defend against evolving and pervasive cyber attacks alone, contact Sekuro to discuss your MDR needs.
