RESTON, Va., June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leidos Cyber, Inc. today announced the availability of its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service that goes beyond traditional Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) or Incident Response (IR) services. MDR is a continuous, end-to-end service that detects malicious threats earlier, provides comprehensive analysis of intrusions, and delivers immediately actionable guidance for future prevention based on intelligence gained.
Every breach starts with a threat that went undiscovered. Finding threats can take security teams 6 months or more and minimizing the time to discover a given threat is critical. By deploying MDR, security teams can reduce the time to find threats to 0 days - detecting threats at the; delivery, exploit, install, or command and control stage instead of detecting a breach after its damaging "actions on objectives" has occurred.
MDR's strength of detection is achieved by two major components, visibility and human analysis.. We leverage technology, proven processes for analysis, and experienced cyber threat analysts to support our clients' network defense teams. Together we discover threats sooner and respond to incidents faster, resulting in smarter protection for your enterprise.
"Our clients will see improved security overall, reduce internal alert fatigue, minimize costly IR engagements, improve situational awareness and reduce business exposure," said Mark Sherman, Director - Managed Services, for Leidos. "All without the burden of managing new technology or hiring additional staff resulting in lower CapEx and OPEX expenditures."
Leidos's seasoned security analysts and NSA-accredited incident response teams provide deep expertise enabling them to identify and thwart the efforts of attackers targeting the enterprise. The MDR Service is supported by three key tiers of monitoring and detection technology: world-class endpoint, network monitoring, and log services providing our clients with accelerated detection and response to advanced threats. We leverage technology that the customer may already have deployed, and integrate it as part of the service delivery.
