Learn why MDR is fulfilling a crucial security need and receive guidance on choosing the right MDR for your organization

Faced with today’s complex threat landscape, many organizations are failing to successfully implement a fundamental endpoint security program, let alone a comprehensive one. The situation can be exacerbated when serious incidents emerge and the organization lacks the time or expertise to properly remediate the situation, potentially endangering the security of the organization’s networks and assets.

Managed detection and response (MDR) has emerged as an answer to this market need. MDR helps an organization by implementing or improving threat detection, response, management and continuous monitoring capabilities — all delivered as a service. Gartner predicts that, by 2024, 25% of organizations will be using MDR services, up from 5% today*. In recent months, a wide variety of new offerings has hit the market under the MDR umbrella, yet these options can be difficult to sift through.

The CrowdStrike MDR Buyer’s Guide has been created to walk you through the different categories of MDR services and help you confidently determine what’s best for your organization.
