As defined by Gartner, MDR services focus on specific outcomes — threat detection, with 24/7 monitoring and alerting, and remote incident investigation and response included in the end-to-end service – but also cautions that clients should be wary of claims from traditional MSSPs on their ability to deliver MDR-like services.
"We are delighted that Gartner has included us in this category of market leaders along with Cisco, Raytheon and FireEye", says Stanley Li, Chief Executive Officer of Netswitch. "The integration of BlackStratus's CYBERShark platform provides Securli® with a world-class SIEM and SOC capability at pricing affordable to the mid-market. Our unique 24x7 SaaS offering is now accessible to everyone intent on providing the best cyber-threat defense on the market."
Gartner points out that MDR providers are targeting midsize customers that lack a formal security team and dedicated security monitoring function, thus wanting to help customers implement a threat-detection-focused monitoring capability.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Netswitch on SecurliXF®", says Mike Maxwell, Chief Security Officer of BlackStratus. "The combination of CYBERShark, our Security as a Service offering, and the Securli® MDR platform is a one of a kind offering bringing the middle market access to the best end to end cyber-threat defense on the market."
