Carlsbad, Calif. – February 16, 2023 – Proficio, a managed security services provider (MSSP) delivering managed detection and response (MDR) services, today announced they have been recognized once again as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s 2023 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services*. Gartner has been tracking the changes in the MDR market, sharing that the high-growth MDR market expanded nearly 50% worldwide from 2020 to 2021.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Gartner, once again, in their Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services,” said Brad Taylor, CEO, Proficio. “We pride ourselves in being an innovator in our space and will continue to invest in our solution so our clients can rapidly and accurately respond to and contain high-fidelity threats. We’re proud to be included in this Market Guide and be recognized by Gartner for a sixth time.”
In their Market Guide, Gartner explains that “successful MDR service providers offer a focus on high-fidelity threat detection, investigation and mitigative response with high verbosity, and human interpretable reporting aligned to business-focused risks.” They highlight the capabilities of MDR service providers and offer recommendations for security operations leaders, including:
- “Assess how the MDR provider’s containment approach and incident reporting can integrate with your organization and whether actions can be performed on your behalf to align with business requirements as well as compliance/legal policy/government regulation.
- Attain the maximum benefit from MDR services by preparing response workflow processes and integrating existing ticket management systems to ensure a business-centric response.
- Investigate whether the MDR provider’s service is able to align with your business-driven requirements and provide actionable findings that internal teams can successfully react to, rather than settling for regurgitated technology outputs with no added analysis.”
Proficio provides 24/7 protection through our global network of Modern Security Operations Centers (MSOCs), where our experts monitor, investigate and triage suspicious events around the clock. Our MDR service provides a cloud native SIEM/SOAR/XDR solution, or we support SOC-as-a-Service for clients Splunk, MS Sentinel, or Elastic SIEM platforms. We can integrate directly with our clients SOAR or ITSM platforms using our ServiceNow eBonding or we offer a SOAR-as-a-Service solution providing customized incident response playbooks for incident response, containment, recovery, and our automated threat response solution, Active Defense. We also offer dedicated SOC teams for clients needing a more white-glove monitoring service. Proficio has always incorporated business context modeling to understand the unique client environment zones, criticalities, vulnerabilities, priorities, and policies. We then use this information to enhance threat validation and enrich alerting to enable triage for actionable and rapid response.
