MSPs, are you thinking about jumping into managed security services?
Are you a Managed Services Provider (MSP) looking to add cybersecurity to your service portfolio? Would you like to deepen your customer relationships to include managing their endpoints and keeping them safe from adverse business impact, earning their long-term loyalty in a deep and while generating recurring revenue for value-added services in a fast-growing category?
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) represents one of the hottest sectors of cybersecurity, with an estimated 30.4% CAGR, growing significantly faster than the overall security market. Gartner estimates that, by 2024, 25% of organizations will be using MDR services, up from just 5% today, creating an addressable market of $4.6 billion by 2026. This explosive growth creates a tremendous opportunity for MSP vendors to help customers that lack extended teams of security experts to stay on top of sophisticated attacks and high-volume security workloads. If you don’t already have MDR on your vendor line card, now is the perfect time to add it.
Bitdefender’s Managed Detection and Response for Endpoints is now offered as a managed security service for MSPs. This service quickly detects, investigates and removes advanced adversaries that infiltrate your customer’s environments and protects them from today’s complex threats. MDR utilizes in-depth telemetry from Bitdefender’s GravityZone EDR toolset combined with advanced threat intelligence, plus other best-of-breed tools, to generate alerts for our Security Operations Center analysts, who execute threat hunting missions to detect sophisticated adversaries and stop attacks in their tracks. Our SOC team investigates and responds to incidents using detailed, pre-approved actions agreed to by the customer and the MSP during onboarding, ensuring quick eviction of intruders and restoration of secure baselines before attacks can cause damage to your customer’s business.
What key customer gaps does MDR address?
The benefits of Managed Detection and Response for MSP-managed businesses are many, starting with the ability to close key customer gaps:
Outsourcing routine security tasks to a team of experts with 7x24x365 “eyes on glass” and the right experience to quickly make connections between alert indicators and complex incidents allows your customers to focus squarely on their own high-priority business objectives while delivering superior overall security outcomes.
Bitdefender MDR for MSP Service
When offering MDR to your customers, you can depend on Bitdefender’s security operations team to investigate and respond to any incidents generated by security tooling or found during analyst-initiated threat-hunting operations through a set of pre-approved actions. These actions are detailed and approved by each customer team during onboarding so the Bitdefender experts can execute them quickly to interdict adversaries and stop attacks before they cause damage to your customer’s business. Dedicated SOC teams handle and triage alerts and act immediately to stop attacks. Customers receive real-time information on the state of security operations, summary reports showing roll-up data with historical trends, and after-action reports that detail each security incident and the actions taken to remediate the threat and restore the known-good environment.
As an option, the MSP can fully manage their end customer environments, with the Bitdefender MDR team providing curated recommendations for the MSP to take during customer incidents.
