An Analysis on MDR from Ovum

This June 2019 research report by Ovum reveals that many cybersecurity incidents and breaches happen because processes are broken, technology is outdated and individuals are untrained. This report provides an expert perspective on how U.K. businesses must think about risk and regulatory issues when shaping protection requirements and consider the benefits of MDR as a core component of their security strategy.

Key Findings:

  • Fewer than 15 percent of U.K. organisations have a proactive approach to cybersecurity and digital risk; they simply do not have the tools in place to keep business systems safe
  • Boards and senior executives must take responsibility for the business impact of cybersecurity breaches
  • Organisations that do not have previous experience in the intricacies of threat detection and response—or the processes and people available to manage the relationship—are less likely to gain value from a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) experience
