Outsource MDR to Prevent Business Disruption

Security leaders are tasked with defending against increasingly complex cyber threats while streamlining their budgets and consolidating their security tools to be more cost-effective. Outsourcing MDR to eSentire helps you build cyber resilience and prevent business disruption with 24/7 threat detection and containment, by acting as an extension of your team, to provide complete response.


Outsourcing the Right Security Capabilities to Build Cyber Resilience

Cybercriminals are continually leveraging more complex tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to launch cyberattacks to deploy ransomware and other malware. Unfortunately, many organizations are also challenged with the cost of hiring, training, and retaining the highly skilled cybersecurity talent required to stop and eliminate critical cyber threats.

Complicating matters further, given the current macroeconomic climate, security leaders are struggling to make the correct cybersecurity investments needed to put their businesses ahead of disruption.

The reality is that no organization today can afford to be impacted by a cyberattack. As a result, investing in cost-effective cybersecurity services from a provider with the right capabilities, who can also leverage your existing security investments with flexible Bring Your Own License (BYOL) options, will be crucial to maximizing ROI while maintaining a strong cybersecurity posture.

Therefore, instead of throwing money at more point solutions that add to burnout, increase alert fatigue, and require more in-house staffing, we recommend focusing on making investments in the four instrumental areas that will address the biggest areas of cyber risk:

Capability #1

The ability to detect threats in real-time

Capability #2

The ability to investigate cyber threats effectively

Capability #3

Prioritizing fast, 24/7 response to cyber threats

Capability #4

Shifting to a risk-based approach to build cyber resilience

When combined together effectively, these security capabilities are the four foundational elements of a true Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service offering. By outsourcing these capabilities to an MDR provider, your in-house team will be better equipped to identify critical cyber threats in real-time, eliminate the risk of a cyberattack, and build resilience.

MDR Outsourcing: The Answer to Addressing the Global Cybersecurity Talent Shortage

Now more than ever, you need to ensure your organization has the 24/7 threat detection, investigation, and response capabilities needed to build cyber resilience, reduce operational downtime, and prevent revenue disruption for your business. However, a constrained budget and lack of skilled cybersecurity staff have made it difficult for security leaders to undertake these capabilities in-house.

According to the latest research by Cybersecurity Ventures, there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs through 2025. This can be daunting for security leaders who are already struggling with retaining their staff amidst decreasing budgets and growing responsibilities.

Rather than overburdening your IT team to take on additional security responsibilities – which can undoubtedly distract them from focusing on their core competencies – you may choose to outsource MDR capabilities to an external provider, who will not only conduct 24/7 threat detection and containment but will also act as an extension of your team to provide complete response – on your behalf.

How Security Leaders Can Make the Business Case for MDR Outsourcing

Given the macroeconomic climate, security leaders are constantly tasked to do more with less. They are being asked to take on more responsibility and protect their organizations against increasing cyber threats while balancing evolving regulatory frameworks and third-party vendor risk management. They expect more scrutiny on spending and will need to make a stronger case for investments and demonstrate value.

Therefore, the best way for security leaders to manage increased cyber risk and make the case for MDR is to tie cyber risk and business risk together.

To get the cybersecurity investment needed for true 24/7 threat detection, investigation, and response capabilities, security leaders must learn to speak the language of their CFOs and align on what business disruption means to your organization from a dollars and cents perspective.


Present cyber risk as a business risk.


Transition to cyber resilience as an outcome.


Learn to speak the same language.


Offer multiple options to avoid presenting an all-or-nothing scenario.


Align on outcome-oriented metrics and KPIs to measure success.
