Cybereason Named a Strong Performer in Forrester Wave for MDR

March 24, 2021 | 2 minute read

The Cybereason Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service offering has been named a Strong Performer in the Forrester Wave™: Managed Detection and Response, Q1 2021 report.

Cybereason MDR was one of 15 solutions included in this report from Forrester, which we believe is a testament to the superior threat hunting, multi-layer prevention and correlated behavior-based detections. Cybereason MDR reliably identifies complex threats earlier in the attack sequence - long before an attack can escalate to the level of a serious breach event.

Cybereason MDR leverages the power of the Cybereason Defense Platform in combination with expert global SOC teams to deliver a fully hosted solution. Organizations can implement Cybereason MDR as a standalone managed security service or as added layers of protection to augment an existing security program.

The Cybereason MDR Difference

The core strength driving the proven efficacy of the Cybereason MDR solution is rooted in our operation-centric approach. The Cybereason Cross-Machine Correlation engine eliminates excessive noise from a constant stream of unqualified alerts which require significant manual interpretation and result in delayed response times.

Cybereason MDR provides deep contextual detections to deliver multi-stage visualizations of every stage of every Malop™ (malicious operation) from root cause across every fixed or mobile device, every user identity, and all platforms whether on-prem or in the cloud. In its vendor profile, the Forrester MDR Wave states:

“Cybereason has long made malicious operations, ‘malops’ in its terms, a core part of its messaging and approach to service delivery. This emphasis is reflected in its strong threat hunting capability along with its outstanding service delivery personnel. Extensive use of the MITRE ATT&CK framework throughout the entirety of its service allows clients to understand incidents and events in a common, relevant external framework. This helps clients improve their approach to detection engineering in their security programs.”

Key Cybereason MDR Capabilities:

  • A fully scalable solution that can be quickly deployed for immediate protection
  • Continuous threat hunting to detect and prevent attacks 24x7x365
  • Detailed analysis of malicious operations from root cause with the Cybereason Malop
  • Automated or guided remediation options based on your organization’s needs
  • Mobile MDR to secure the expanded network perimeter
  • Remote Incident Response (IR) retainer options to further reduce response times

The Cybereason MDR Advantage

The Cybereason MDR solution was engineered to proactively detect and respond to malicious activity based on subtle chains of behavior that can surface and attack at the earliest stages, and provides analysts with immediate visibility into the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) being leveraged by the adversary.

Cybereason MDR offers two tailored options for managed prevention based on your organization’s needs: MDR Essentials and MDR Complete - each providing a flexible and scalable solution for enterprises of all sizes. Cybereason MDR is fully managed by seasoned experts who are world class threat hunters because they understand the nature of complex offensive operations and apply that knowledge to stopping even the most stealthy and sophisticated threats.
