The demand on Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions is growing, especially among SMB organizations. Gartner predicts every fourth company will be using MDR by 2024 in comparison with just 5% in 2019. Moreover, it believes that, by 2024, 40% of midsize enterprises will use MDR as their only managed security service.
This growing interest to MDR turns out to be challenging for SMBs, as they have traditionally invested more into preventive technologies with less focus on detection and response. However, choosing MDR is in many ways about selecting a right provider and a team of security experts, who would manage the security. And here SMBs often come across a lack of in-house professionals, who would constantly monitor their security events. It is difficult to hire and expensive to retain such experts, as now the cybersecurity talent shortage has reached 3.5 million positions in comparison with 2 million 5 years ago.
Once the value of the detection and response is clear, it is time to choose the right solution. On top of considering a solution with good detection rates, companies should have a room for self-reflection to define the security requirements specific for the organization. Based on understanding of these needs, it is easier to select the right solution as well as the MDR provider.
Here is a list of questions that can help you to identify and structure your needs:
