GTS provides a Managed SOC service through which continuous monitoring, vulnerability management and incident handling are provided. These services are centered around a SIEM. The MDR service goes beyond this to provide enhanced detection of security compromises and quicker response through a high degree of response automation. The MDR service is based on a machine learning based Big Data analytics platform, enhanced endpoint detection technology and a response automation framework.
If you have high risk exposure to security breaches and need to mitigate breaches in the shortest possible time, or have a high security event load to keep up with in your current SOC, the MDR service is definitely for you.
The value of GTS SecureNow MDR for an existing SOC
Organisations that are already operating a SOC can benefit from the MDR service in several ways:
- The MDR service can help catch security incidents that the SOC may be missing due to technology limitations e.g. limited Big Data, machine learning and analytics capabilities or lack of security staff bandwidth
- Security teams sometimes choose not to collect certain classes of high volume security data due to the high price tag associated with data volume-based licensing schemes in certain security products. The MDR service can be utilised to process this data cost-effectively
