HOW FAST CAN YOU CONTAIN A THREAT?
When your organization is under attack, response time matters. Once a threat has infiltrated your network, the longer it’s inside, the more damage it can do.
It’s not enough to identify threats. They must be contained, and quickly. At Critical Start, we stop threats in their tracks. Designed to deliver premium Managed Detection and Response, our managed security services leverage a sophisticated methodology, combined with a highly trained team of SOC analysts to monitor, identify and contain threats faster and more effectively.
The average median time to identify and resolve a threat is 60 min.
Critical Start does it in 10 min or less.
REDUCE YOUR ALERTS, NOT YOUR SECURITY
Some MSSPs turn off logs or lower alert thresholds to limit incident “noise.” But these tactics also limit visibility. Critical Start’s unique approach to managed services uses a Zero Trust approach to boost the effectiveness of our threat hunting. Our orchestration model accepts all your data, then sorts, categorizes, and eliminates security events so that only unknown or anomalous events are produced. The result? Security monitoring that’s more efficient, effective and comprehensive.
