Why Your Cyber Needs MDR

XcellHost MDR Aligns To MITRE ATT&Ck Framework

USe Cases

use case

Malware

Malware is a common attack vector used by adversaries to harvest user credentials, exfiltrate data and extort money. Threat detection harnesses signature and behaviour-based threat detection techniques to identify the latest malware threats, including ransomware and cryptomalware, as well as fileless and polymorphic variants. Automated incident response actions enable threats to be contained and eliminated before they spread.

use case

Privilege escalation

System vulnerabilities and misconfigurations can allow attackers to gain elevated access to systems and assets that are normally restricted. Threat detection uses the latest behavioural monitoring technology to closely monitor the activities of privileged users, identify privilege escalation techniques and detect attempts to exfiltrate data.

use case

Lateral movement

Upon establishing a foothold on a network, attackers will attempt to pivot through systems and accounts to reach their end goal. Threat detection helps detect lateral movement by identifying privilege escalation, efforts attempts to install remote access tools, and changes to access controls.

use case

Compromise of trusted hosts

A large proportion of attacks target endpoint devices such as servers, workstations and laptops. Threat detection baselines the activity of hosts to help detect unusual behaviour such as spikes in network traffic, unknown communication sources, and the deactivation of security controls.

use case

Data exfiltration

Malware is a common attack vector used by adversaries to harvest user credentials, exfiltrate data and extort money. Threat detection harnesses signature and behaviour-based threat detection techniques to identify the latest malware threats, including ransomware and cryptomalware, as well as fileless and polymorphic variants. Automated incident response actions enable threats to be contained and eliminated before they spread.

use case

Policy violation

Tracking adherence to information security policies and standards is a good way to uncover suspicious activity. Threat detection helps to detect threats by monitoring employee and system attempts to access restricted resources, including unusual out-of-hours requests.

use case

Credential acces

To steal account names and passwords, adversaries deploy credential harvesting malware, and use brute-force and credential dumping techniques. Threat detection can help detect credential access attempts by monitoring for use of weak passwords, account lock outs and login attempts from unknown locations.

use case

Cloud-focused threats

Many cyber security threats now specifically target cloud environments. Threat detection can help to achieve cloud visibility by monitoring public, private, hybrid and virtualised cloud environments for suspicious user, system and application activity.

use case

Supply chain compromise

If your organisation is dependent on a growing ecosystem of partners and suppliers, there is an increased risk of a supply chain compromise. Threat detection helps prevent third party compromises by closely monitoring user accounts, applications and web sites for suspicious activity.

use case

Phishing

Despite the adoption of more intelligent prevention technologies, there is always a risk of employees receiving and falling victim to phishing emails. Threat detection provides an extra layer of protection against phishing attacks by integrating with secure email gateways and popular email tools such as Office 365 and Gmail to improve detection of suspicious activity.

use case

Insider threats

People, whether acting out of negligence or malice, are one of the top causes of data breaches. Threat detection leverages advanced User and Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA) to help better identify compromised accounts, privilege abuse and other suspicious user activity that could suggest an insider threat.

use case

Zero-day attacks

Detecting previously unknown threats is challenging but achievable with the right tools and data. Threat detection integrates the latest cyberoffensive intelligence, high fidelity telemetry and a range of analytics-based technologies to hunt for evidence of new adversarial tactics, techniques and procedures.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The whole of this Managed Detection and Response FAQ boils down to this question. Before we can dive into the details of how your enterprise can benefit, we need to examine the surrounding context.

Fortunately, there is a simple answer to this question. Unfortunately, the answer paints a bleak picture of the current state of modern cybersecurity and its professionals.

Generally, cybersecurity jobs across the country and the globe remain perilously unstaffed. Those professionals working to protect enterprises find themselves frequently overwhelmed and potentially burnt out from the frequent demands of their jobs.

While understaffing can pose serious problems, burn out proves much more insidious. In fact, it could result in a data breach down the line as your professionals lack the drive to chase down threats. Yet without a full cybersecurity staff or the means to give them time for self-care, burnout becomes inevitable.

First, MDR services provide your enterprise with 24/7 monitoring. No one can overstress the importance of this power in modern cybersecurity. Hacking now represents a global enterprise (indeed, some hackers even form corporate hierarchies) worth potentially billions. A penetrative attack or dwelling threat could strike at literally any time.

However, your IT security team (probably) does not constitute automatons with no need for sleep or food or relaxation. Trying to hold them to overnights shifts and weekends not only foments burn out but it can also breed resentment and mass departures.

Therefore, utilizing the 24/7 monitoring of MDR services can significantly improve your enterprise cybersecurity posture. Just having more eyes more consistently gives hackers less room to conceal their attacks.

Every company can benefit from MDR services. Enterprises have the luxury of large budgets and teams of people. Today, 24x7 SOCs with sophisticated tools and processes are the standard for enterprise security. Small to midsize enterprises (SMEs) have all the same security needs as large enterprises but only a fraction of their budget. They do not have the luxury of having teams of security experts but rely instead on IT people who wear multiple hats. As a result, SMEs stand to benefit the most from MDR services.

Obviously, 24/7 monitoring represents the most crucial capability of MDR services. However, this doesn’t represent the full suite of their tools. Indeed, MDR services also offer targeted incident response.

Your enterprise can absolutely select an MDR service that conducts your incident response for you, allowing your IT team to act as a liaison. Additionally, you can call upon MDR to assist your own team’s threat hunting and remediation efforts. This depends on your IT security team, their capabilities, and what gaps you wish to close.

No matter your answer, enterprise MDR services usually offer direct communication channels so you can always reach them with your concerns and queries. Your enterprise can also ask your MDR service to run investigations for you since this proves one of the most stressful and time-consuming activities for IT professionals.
