Optimize Security Tools

Understand and measure gaps in threat coverage.

Gain confidence in your security program by measuring controls’ effectiveness and coverage.

Disparate security tools add complexities to your security program

Disconnected security tools diminish their effectiveness and may result in missed alerts, increased risk exposure, and costly business downtime. A managed detection and response (MDR) service partners with you to alleviate these problems, while measuring control’s effectiveness and coverage.

Optimization is possible

In times of economic uncertainty, maximizing the investment in security is important. Optimization is possible through performance visibility and enhanced threat detection, which is achievable through MDR services. An MDR service will reduce complexity, tools, and risk exposure, while optimizing costs and teams performance.

Preventing breaches starts with effectively detecting attacks across controls. Alerts and threat detection coverage are mapped against the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework to enforce, manage and maintain effective detection content. You can also use this these metrics to identify gaps in your security tool set and prioritize security spend.
