Hackers are targeting your business when your human defenses are down.

Companies are 400% more likely to be hit by ransomware at 11 PM than any other time of day.

Facts you should know:


The cost of Cybercrime in 2021 alone was over $6.2 Trillion (yes, with a T) [Cyberventures, 2022]


76% of Ransomware attacks took place on either nights or weekends [Madiant, 2022]


It is nearly impossible to find Cybersecurity Personnel. There are currently almost 700,000 vacant cybersecurity jobs in the United States alone, and entry-level engineers without any experience start at over $120,000 per year in many markets []

What Are Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Services?

Cybercrime is one of the most significant threats facing your organization. Cybercrime cost the world $6.2 trillion in damages in 2021 alone. Experts predict Cybercrime to rise to $10.5 trillion by 2025. That would put Cybercrime as the third largest economy in the world, after the US and China.

Every business needs cost-effective yet highly skilled managed detection and response services that pair technology, artificial intelligence, and human-led analysis to keep up with today’s threats.

Managed detection and response (MDR) services provide threat intelligence, hunting and detection, security monitoring, incident analysis, and targeted responses. We use advanced security analytics to determine actionable insights on endpoints, user behavior, and applications.

Our strategies use artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and human expertise to investigate and automatically contain threats, then orchestrate a response.

Should I Worry About Cybercrime?

As security processes grow stronger, cyber threats equally advance. Did you know that 76% of ransomware attacks happen after business hours or on weekends? You can’t log off and go home, assuming that everything will be okay. You need 24/7 protection, managed detection, and response to cyber threats. Cybercrime doesn’t sleep, so neither should your cyber security.

There are almost 700,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs in the US alone. Due to such demand, entry-level cyber security engineers average nearly $100,000, with several markets in the US averaging over $120,000. With such pressure on manual cyber security, we must rely on AI and machine learning to enforce watertight detection, response, and threat hunting.

Our team of experts harnesses the power of technology, artificial intelligence, and human analysis & intervention to deliver end-to-end managed detection and response around the clock.


What Challenges Can Managed Detection and Response Address?

Cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated, varied, and numerous each day. As they increase exponentially, organizations struggle to maintain security operations. Keeping up to date with cyber criminals is time-consuming, costly, and never-ending. Moreover, in a seriously understaffed industry, it’s challenging to source your own in-house highly skilled personnel.

As a result, our managed detection and response services will provide you with a cost-effective, expert security team. We’ll minimize risks and mitigate the need for an upfront cybersecurity investment.

Our MDR services provide highly skilled analysts and cutting-edge security tools beyond the budget and resources of most enterprises. Therefore, we can help you keep up with continually evolving Cybercrime.
