Critical Start Achieves Bronze Victory in 20th Annual 2024 Globee® Cybersecurity Awards

Critical Start Recognized as Industry Leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

Plano, TX, March 14, 2024 –  Critical Start, a leading provider of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) cybersecurity solutions and pioneer of Managed Cyber Risk Reduction (MCRR), today announced it has won Bronze in the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) category for the 2024 Globee® Cybersecurity Awards.

In the rapidly evolving landscape of cybersecurity, security and risk leaders are prioritizing focus on proactive, versus reactive security strategies, turning to their managed security service partners to help them pick up where their current risk management approaches are falling short. As a result, Critical Start introduced Managed Cyber Risk Reduction (MCRR), which represents the next evolution of MDR. MCRR integrates cyber risk monitoring technology with a human-led risk and security operations team. The technology is designed to go beyond detection and response to support all five functions of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF).

The combined solution provides organizations with a comprehensive understanding of their cybersecurity posture along with real-time monitoring and response to cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and risks. The power of MCRR provides numerous benefits and advantages to organizations who care about reducing cyber risk and are looking to move beyond threat-based MDR services to a proven, cost-effective, guided, and measurable risk-based approach to improve security posture.

“Enterprises have an expansive number of MDR providers to choose from, each with various offerings and capabilities,” said Rob Davis, CEO and Founder of Critical Start. “Receiving the recognition validates Critical Start as a leading MDR solution in such a competitive market and showcases our commitment to continuously enhance our solution to meet our current and future clients’ needs.”
