The cyber threat landscape keeps evolving at lightning speed. According to the latest 2022 BrightCloud Threat Report, small to midsize businesses (SMBs) are particularly vulnerable to becoming a victim of a ransomware attack. Cybercriminals also are becoming more selective in terms of the organizations they target. Without human security experts and solutions at their disposable, SMBs remain susceptible to attacks. And, thus, there’s never been a better time for MSPs to partner with a leading managed detection and response (MDR) provider to help protect SMBs against cyberattacks.

What Is MDR?

MDR is an approach to proactively managing the threats and malicious activity that empower organizations to become more cyber resilient. MDR services offer threat detection and response capabilities by augmenting cybersecurity tools with human security intelligence. Leveraging this human security expertise, MDR integrates, synthesizes and contextualizes security and other event information to hunt for, understand and respond to security incidents. This allows MSPs to offer the best combination of human expertise and a robust technology stack to help SMBs defend against future attacks.

Since MDR helps to close the gap between detection and response to threats, SMBs greatly benefit from this solution. As an MSP, you are the trusted advisor to provide your SMBs with an MDR solution to help boost their overall security stack and embrace cyber resilience.
