Managed Detection & Response Service
Organisations across the globe will have Antivirus software in place already as part of their cyber security strategy. Sole reliance on this can result in a false sense of security, leaving your organisation vulnerable. This means it is no longer adequate to fully protect and defend in an increasingly sophisticated landscape of cyber threats. This is where Acora’s modern Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Service comes in, providing 24/7/365 support to manage your security environment.
The Acora MDR cyber security service assists organisations in detecting, responding to, and mitigating cyber threats by combining advanced technology, human expertise, and proactive threat hunting. Delivering a customised cyber security program to your business, we take on a personal approach to handling security alerts, making decisions and sending you regular reports to keep you fully informed about what is going on in your environment.
The right level of protection across your business
Most Security and IT professionals will already have Endpoint, Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities in place that focus solely on endpoint protection. However, we know that organisations urgently need to extend their current capabilities to get more protection for the same cost. In addition to this, current services are not set up to support incident response, relying on automated alerts rather than human expertise.
Partnering with Gartner leader SentinelOne, Acora’s MDR Service combines market-leading technology and experience all under one 24/7 Managed Service.
Acora’s MDR Service Benefits
- Benchmarked against Gartner's Magic Quadrant and the Mitre Att&ck Framework
- Providing Security and IT professionals with the ability to access enterprise-grade security tools
- Supports incident response and advisory with human expertise instead of automated alerts
- Managed by one relationship and one platform, taking full accountability
MDR vs EDR
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an integrated security system focusing on endpoint security. The system combines real-time continuous monitoring and collection of endpoint data with rules-based automated response and analysis capabilities. It detects, investigates and responds to suspicious activities on hosts and enables security teams to identify and respond to threats quickly.
Acora’s MDR Service enhances an organisation’s threat detection, analysis, and response capabilities far beyond EDR. By combining advanced technology, human expertise, and proactive threat hunting, MDR assists organisations in detecting, responding to, and mitigating cyber threats. As an effective MDR provider, we have 24/7 Security Operation Centres (SOCs), Incident Response Teams, and the ability to secure various platforms.
