BUCHAREST, Romania and SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity company protecting over 500 million systems worldwide, today announced improved technology and service capabilities for its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offering, positioning the company as one of the most advanced MDR providers in the world. The updated offerings and capabilities closely align with customer security needs along their security maturity journey while lowering the barrier organizations face in using MDR.

The enhanced MDR service combines Bitdefender's award-winning security technologies for endpoint protectionnetwork traffic analysis and security analytics with the threat-hunting expertise of highly skilled analysts from global intelligence agencies. The service delivers leading incident detection with rapid response using automated pre-approved playbooks allowing analysts to take swift action to mitigate and remediate most threats. Expert tuning and detailed enterprise environment analyses are used to understand customers' unique threat profiles and their main risks, and to create customer-specific action plans. This results in broad threat identification and mitigation that minimizes the impact of advanced attacks.  

The MDR market has been identified as one of the largest and fastest-growing segments of the more than $100 billion cybersecurity market. International Data Corporation (IDC) recently identified MDR as "the next generation of managed security services" due to the growing business need for a highly skilled and dedicated security team that delivers 24x7 monitoring, analysis and rapid response to sophisticated attacks.1 "Organizations are currently trying to balance the use and expense of a multitude of disparate security tools while facing SOC staff shortages, resulting in time-consuming investigations and a lack of the visibility and depth necessary to detect and remediate today's advanced threats," said Christina Richmond, Program Vice President, IDC. "MDR solutions such as Bitdefender's perform advanced attack detection and mitigation making expert-level security accessible to a wide range of struggling organizations." 

Bitdefender MDR analysts have extensive cybersecurity experience in some of the most demanding commercial and national security environments, and are industry-certified (GCIA, GCIH, and/or SANS) based on their roles and responsibilities. Bitdefender analysts continually update their skillsets to stay relevant while advancing their careers and are required to participate in regular training exercises. With half of all Bitdefender staff globally focused on security research and development, the MDR service integrates unparalleled threat intelligence that ensures a direct line of knowledge between Bitdefender Labs and MDR analysts to stay ahead of the ever-changing and constantly evolving threat landscape. The analysis is supported by Bitdefender telemetry from 500 million endpoints and proprietary threat detection techniques and is combined with curated intelligence to improve and contextualize data, making it faster to detect and respond to advanced attacks. 

Key Capabilities 

"We want security to be worry-free for our customers, and to be true business partners to them," said Gavin Hill, Vice President, Product Marketing, Bitdefender. "Bitdefender MDR gives organizations the peace of mind needed to focus on running their businesses. They know our team of verified experts is monitoring and automatically remediating advanced threats 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year." 

Three new MDR packages are designed to help customers get started quickly and immediately up-level their incident response capabilities along their security maturity journey:
