What are the benefits of an MDR solution?

Managed Detection & Response (MDR) solution can give you an edge in today’s risky world.

MDR Solution Managed Detection & Response

In the cybersecurity world, we often hear “A hacker only has to be right once, but we have to be right all of the time.” This saying comes from the reality that at any given moment there are thousands of potential vulnerabilities in a company’s network. In order to be secure, an IT department must keep up with them and make sure they’re patched in a timely fashion. Since new vulnerabilities and patches are coming out daily, the pressure is relentless to make sure that everything is buttoned up before these vulnerabilities can be exploited.

However, from a hacker’s perspective, they know that most successful attacks require a series of unrelated vulnerabilities tied together to optimize an attack vector. So another way to look at ‘being right all the time’ is, “A hacker must be right in multiples to break into a system.” If an organization is actively applying patches and monitoring its systems, it will have multiple opportunities to identify security gaps and patch them before they can be used for a breach.

It’s easier to stop an attack if you’re actively scanning a network with an MDR solution like Armorpoint which can detect the steps used in a successful attack. Armorpoint scans and gathers information from multiple sources across the network 24/7/365. It will not only identify suspicious activity or detect an attack in progress, but it will also shut it down immediately. Armorpoint’s automated response takes minutes to thwart an attack rather than the hours or days that a human response would take.

With Armorpoint’s automated response you greatly improve your security posture and ability to react quickly to attacks.

Turn that saying around for your company and no longer make it that the hacker only has to be right once. Choose an MDR solution that helps you be the one that only has to be right once to stop an attack from happening.
