Companies must take a more proactive approach to cybersecurity in light of the recent shift in the threat landscape. Open platforms that can bring a modern, AI-driven security analytics capability to the data generated by their existing tools are in demand as legacy SIEM solutions fall out of favor.

Customers are turning to advanced threat detection, prevention, and response tools that make better use of their existing security technology stack and enable proactive cybersecurity approaches such as threat hunting, deep machine learning, and automated threat response. eXtended Detection and Response is the name given to this new technology (XDR). However, this adds to the task’s complexity – first, because of the sophistication of the threats, and second, because using XDR platforms necessitates highly skilled and capable human cybersecurity resources.

Providers of managed detection and response (MDR) services can make better use of XDR platforms for their customers by offering a fully managed or co-managed MDR service. Smaller businesses with a limited budget or skilled personnel can outsource all or part of their security operations to a professional and highly capable security team that can work as an extension of their own. The Managed Threat Protection MDR service from CYB3R-X combines a cutting-edge security platform with a 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC) team to provide the ultimate protection against sophisticated, never-before-seen cyber security threats.
