What is MDR?

If you want around the clock protection from cyber threats, then you may want to consider CommSec’s managed detection and response service. Like its name suggests, managed detection and response (MDR) is a cyber security service that constantly monitors, detects and responds to cybersecurity threats. Managed detection and response is a service managed by our SOC team, who utilises technological assistance such as SIEM and AI to help them detect malicious activity on your network. MDR typically acts as a remote extension of your own IT and/or security team.


Extensive Threat Visibility

Without awareness of activity inside your organisation’s network, it can be impossible to know if systems and data are in danger of being compromised. CommSec MDR provides extensive threat visibility across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments, 24/7.


With the threat landscape constantly evolving, it’s important to ensure that detection capabilities keep pace. CommSec MDR leverages the latest security tools and threat intelligence to ensure your organisation is prepared to respond to current and emerging cyber threats.


CommSec’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) experts manage and monitor all the security technologies included as part of MDR. By investigating and triaging all the alerts they generate, our analysts ensure that your in-house team is not burdened with the responsibility of around-the-clock threat detection.


A swift response to cyber incidents demands a high level of situational awareness. CommSec MDR ensures that members of your security team are not weighed down by irrelevant alerts and that when genuine incidents occur, they receive the actionable mitigation guidance and automated response actions needed to respond effectively.


By operating as an extension of your organisation, CommSec MDR enables you to quickly elevate security capabilities to enterprise level. The service helps to make processes more efficient, ensuring that important security events don’t get missed, and your team is free to focus on other priorities.


A proactive approach to threat detection is now required to achieve compliance with the latest regulations and standards. With CommSec MDR, you can quickly elevate your organisation’s cyber security capabilities to a level needed to help meet the requirements of the GDPR, NIS Directive, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, and more.
