Discovering where you’re most vulnerable is a security priority and likely already part of your overall program. The ability to continuously identify threats and monitor unexpected changes in your network before they turn into breaches is common practice. Compliance drivers also necessitate vulnerability scanning on a regular basis. For these reasons, you should invest in a vulnerability scanning solution that gives you immediate, global visibility into your assets and vulnerabilities. However, deploying the scanner rather it be physical or virtualized may be challenge in and of itself. Scheduling scans properly based on a set of proven processes requires a depth of expertise and experience you may not have available.

The following document is downloadable as a PDF, provided by Datashield, an ADT company. Learn how Datashield provides Managed Detection & Response services to our clients and the difference between MSSP and MDR. Click Here to Download the PDF MSSP vs MDR In the new cyber landscape of “Security as a Service” many Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) claim that they can deliver Managed Detection and Response (MDR) type services. What is the difference? How can you ensure your organization is truly safe while managing your security tools effectively? Before we jump into the key differences between MSSP and MDR services, let’s first examine how they are the same. As Gartner puts it: “The overlap between managed security services and MDR is increasing, which is adding to the confusion in the market and making it difficult for buyers. MSS and MDR still have distinct characteristics that buyers need to understand.” Both provide 24x7x365 outsourced monitoring of security devices and systems. This also typically includes some level of event logging, compliance reporting, incident response support and containment. Great...so how do they differ and which should you choose? As Anton Chuvakin Research VP and Analyst for Gartner summarizes: “…an MDR is simply an MSSP that knows how to detect actual threats...” What does this mean to your organization? It means with an MDR you will spend less time sifting through alerts and less money on the people, technology and time to do so. How can an MDR deliver on this promise? A true MDR has the technology, expertise and experience to provide a complete forensic investigation, only notify the customer when true events arise and help initiate an action plan with remediation recommendations if necessary. Issues with MSSP Alerts No additional details included No indication the MSSP actually investigated the alert further than reading the initial alert No remediation assistance Alert prone – alerts client of any and all alerts regardless of false-positive finding Datashield Advantage Forensic Investigation – Detailed investigation resulting in complete story of infection with forensic details. Provide Complete Investigation Story Write-up – We share the story of this infection with the Client. Notify Client (If Warranted) – Only warranted investigations are sent to the Client.
