Challenges We Address

Running an effective Security Operations Centre.

The complexity of running your own 24/7 SOC can be a distraction from your business’s core purpose. Avoid the hassle of coordinating IT resources, maintaining compliance and managing your security in a comprehensive, cost-effective way by partnering with us. Our team has specialised training and skills allowing you to stay agile rather than hiring, training, and developing staff.

Managing your security program.

Being in control means having the right information at the right time. A good detection and response program will ensure you maintain the highest standards across your Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) activities. Our IT security experts offer decades of experience dealing with breaches of varying sizes and scales.

Detecting and responding to common threats and attacks.

The greatest challenge for businesses today is the rapid detection and response to threats. Malicious attacks, including malware, phishing, ransomware, DDoS and social engineering attacks can escalate quickly, becoming a major breach. The PR and regulatory implications can be devastating. We bring together the right people, processes and technology to protect your organisation.

Frequently asked questions about XDR

What is XDR?

XDR stands for Extended Detection and Response. Its function is to gather, analyse and correlate data across several different security elements, including endpoint, network, cloud, and server. It allows organisations to detect and analyse security incidents quickly to respond effectively and reduce the potential damage caused by the attack.

What is MDR?

A Managed Detection and Response solution (MDR) is a managed security service that provides monitoring, detection, and response to security threats across an organisation's entire infrastructure. An MDR solution utilises technologies such as SIEM and EDR to fulfil this service.

What’s the difference between MDR and XDR?

While MDR focuses on the endpoints of your network - such as servers, monitors, users, traffic and data; XDR monitors all of those things across your entire network and IT infrastructure.

What is EDR?

An Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an endpoint security solution that protects an organisation's endpoints (such as laptops, servers, and mobile devices) from malicious activity and allows defence teams to respond to threats quickly.

What’s the difference between MDR, XDR and EDR?

This trio represents three levels of solutions. EDR focuses on endpoint protection via equipment and devices, while MDR focuses on a bigger suite of endpoints across your network - such as servers, monitors, users, traffic and data; XDR monitors all of those things across your entire network and IT infrastructure.
