Emerging from the traditional managed security service provider (MSSP) model, Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is an answer to the fact that threat actors have increased their ability to circumvent traditional detection measures. As early as 2011, MDR emerged (uncategorized at the time) with a single guiding principal: Acknowledge that a breach will happen. When it does, minimize threat actor dwell time to reduce risk.
However, as the MDR market has evolved, four criteria remain constant as key to minimizing threat actor dwell time in the event of a breach: visibility, fidelity, detection capabilities and response. When these criteria are measured against in-house resources, risk tolerance and available budget, they can be used to choose the appropriate MDR vendor based on your organizational requirements.
To help organizations make an informed cybersecurity solutions choice, eSentire has authored, The Definitive Guide to Managed Detection and Response (MDR) (and this blog series) which examines seven categories of MDR providers, measured across four criteria, which include:
MDR Category #3 – MD-Little-r (Multiple Telemetry)
MDr-MT is a viable option for organizations that are trying to balance restricted budgets with wider network visibility and that have existing in-house response capabilities.
MDr (Multiple Telemetry), or MDr-MT, represents the majority of the MDR market today. Vendors in this space leverage multiple telemetry sources but fall short of full stack visibility across on- premises and cloud environments. Typical combinations seen in the MDr-MT space are:
Vulnerability visibility and integration into detection and response processes vary from provider to provider, as does cloud visibility beyond cloud-based endpoints and logs. Vendors in the space typically utilize machine learning and behavioral analysis software to process large amounts of data to look for unknown threats.
Coverage of the IR lifecycle is limited and incident response retainers are typically available for clients in the event of an incident that cannot be handled in-house. MDr-MT is a viable option for organizations that are trying to balance restricted budgets with wider network visibility and that have existing in-house response capabilities.
Varies, but typically two of the following options (note that cloud visibility outside of endpoints, logs and vulnerability varies by provider):
Questions and considerations:
While this blog provides a snapshot of one category of MDR, the intricacies and interdependencies are the varying types is complex.
