mnemonic, a leading provider of 24x7 advanced threat defence services, is pleased to announce that it has been identified as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner "Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services" report. mnemonic is the only listed vendor in the report with its origins in Europe.
The report, targeted to IT security leaders, identifies providers that are emerging “to support organizations seeking to improve their threat detection and incident response capabilities. Security leaders should use this research to understand the MDR services market and its fit for their security monitoring and incident response requirements.”
"We are delighted that Gartner has included us in this category along with other strong players in the market,” says Tønnes Ingebrigtsen, CEO of mnemonic.
More than 30 % of mnemonic's Argus Managed Defence experts' time is dedicated to R&D.
mnemonic delivers solutions and services for Advanced Threat Defence and Response Services, backed by more than 13 years of research and development.
"At the core of our solution is the proprietary platform known as Argus - our purpose-built ecosystem exclusively designed to rapidly detect, analyze and respond to security threats on a colossal scale. Argus provides the advanced threat prevention ecosystem needed to see the big threat picture in real-time and protect our customers against advanced persistent threats, zero days and targeted attacks. We enable businesses to stay secure."
Gartner recommends that IT security leaders should:
- Use MDR services to augment existing security monitoring capabilities to address gaps in advanced threat detection and incident response before investing in more security monitoring tools (e.g. security information and event management [SIEM], network, and host-threat detection), and associated staff and expertise.
- Consider managed security service providers (MSSPs) that offer MDR-like services when device management and compliance use cases are required. Data residency requirements may also drive consideration of an MSSP over an MDR service provider.
- Conduct a detailed analysis of MDR service provider offerings relative to your specific use cases. Look for MDR providers who can incorporate your existing security controls in the scope of their services to improve context and coverage.
“Security leaders should use this research to understand the MDR services market and its fit for their security monitoring and incident response requirements.”
