MDR-as-a-Service — Is it the Holy Grail as Some Say?

  • Only 33 percent use a security operations center (SOC) to orchestrate threat analysis and response. Bringing in your own detection and response with a SOC philosophy in place first is key, and with this response being so low, it shows why the managed segment is seeing growth. Getting value from DR-like applications without a SOC framework will fail as point solutions lead to siloed data, which means you will miss the real alerts. The antithesis is true for managed providers — package your company as providing a SOC-as-a-Service and offering select services such as MDR. Help customers see you have already transformed your security infrastructure into the platform they could only dream of.
  • 70 percent of organizations prioritize 24×7 security coverage relative to MDR services. This again shows why there is demand. A SOC brings in methodologies for response and triage, and by design 24x7x365 thinking. Point solutions bring in pager thinking. Managed providers can highlight the fact that their business is always on and always there to protect the client.
  • The last survey response I share is a bit puzzling. Respondents also evaluate MDR services based on their ability to integrate and leverage the services into an existing security stack (56 percent) and their cost (54 percent). Now if 70 percent of respondents don’t have a SOC yet, I would have guessed the integration needs to be lower, but it shows the cost-consciousness of clients. They may not want to build it or manage it, but when they trust an MSSP to provide the service, they still want a good deal.
