Managed Detection and Response
Better security against modern threats
Managed Detection and Response, often referred to as MDR, is a newer generation of software protection that is installed on computers to prevent attacks especially by the likes of ransomware and data theft related attacks.
These types of attacks are now becoming so common that they have effectively become their own pandemic. Estimates vary but some figures show that up to half of all organisations have already been infected and most don’t know it yet. Often the attacking software sits dormant for long periods of time waiting for a command to start an attack.
Advanced MDR solutions are able to spot the actual attack as it happens. This is done by looking for patterns of behaviour during the attack and shutting down any software that is behaving in a way considered to be dangerous or suspicious. This type of solution is best paired with a security monitoring service to act on MDR alerts.
Alliance Solutions supplies, installs and manages a best-in-class MDR solution called SentinelOne as part of our Fortify Endpoint Protection service.
