Managed detection and response (MDR) services buyers guide

Few organizations have the right tools, people, and processes in-house to effectively manage their security program around-the-clock while proactively defending against new and emerging threats. As a result, organizations are increasingly looking towards managed detection and response (MDR) services to run their security operations program.

According to Gartner1, by 2025, 50% of organizations will be using MDR services (this is up from less than 5% in 2019).

However, the security services marketplace is relatively new to many, and can be filled with false claims and confusing technical jargon. Making an educated decision for your organization is increasingly difficult. This guide provides clarity by walking you through the key considerations when choosing an MDR service. It also enables you to see how MDR providers stack up against one another, helping you make an informed choice.
