MDR buying guide | Managed detection and response

Key points to remember

Choosing an MDR partner starts with objectively defining what you want to get from the service. What gaps exist in your safety program and skills? What results do you hope to achieve?

After setting these expectations, you can begin to assess potential MDR partners. The questions above will help you distinguish candidates by type, service maturity, expected results, global footprint and more. Once you have a shortlist, consider intangibles, such as the supplier’s reputation in the industry, ancillary and related services, and the degree of alignment with your corporate culture.

Kroll leverages its unparalleled IR experience and front-line intelligence to run a 24-hour global MDR service providing active response using seasoned incident responders, not just surveillance analysts. In 2014, Redscan, now part of Kroll, became one of the first full-service MDR providers, pioneering the approach of layering custom detection scans and search procedures on security tools ( EDR, SIEM, NDR, etc.), investigating threats and responding on behalf of the customer. Today, Kroll Responder is now one of the only solutions on the market that offers MDR with what we call “Complete Response”.

At Kroll, we believe that the ‘Response’ aspect of MDR should not leave you hanging. Our response goes as far as you need it to, bridging the gap between simply containing the threat to actively removing it from all affected systems, and quickly understanding the root cause, to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Our Responder MDR service is backed by the same Kroll IR experts who handle thousands of high-level breach investigations each year. We extend this service to our customers, which means they get the value of remote digital forensics and incident response at no additional cost.
