What is Managed Detection and Response (MDR)?

Managed detection and response or MDR services are security services designed to deliver 24/7/365 expertise, detection and response to reduce risk.

Via their team, tools and processes, MDR vendors can rapidly increase your security maturity and cyber defenses so you can focus on growing your business. An MDR partner brings deep security expertise, knowledge from across their customer base and best practices, tools and automation.

Combining Cortex XDR with MDR is the key to reducing risk and operationalizing your security investment. An MDR has an advantage with real-time stitched data and cross-data analytics. Cortex XDR provides proven, comprehensive visibility across data sources and delivers a clear contextualized picture of every attempted attack so an MDR can more quickly identify and contain threats, reducing dwell time and mean time to respond (MTTR).

Stop attacks 24/7 with continuous monitoring, proactive threat hunting, alert triage, investigation and response services from Unit 42™ MDR experts and our certified partners.
