CARLSBAD – August 17, 2022 – Proficio, a leading Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service provider, today announced the addition of an innovative new feature to their threat response offering. Proficio’s Active Defense offering now includes automated response and a new push-button response feature. These capabilities work with clients’ existing security tools to contain attacks at the perimeter, endpoint, cloud, and identity layer.
Active Defense XDR, was developed to provide an added layer of protection by instantly containing high-fidelity threats without human intervention. With the addition of the push-button feature, Proficio clients can now respond even quicker to potential threats – taking action at the click of a button, either within the Proficio Incident Case Management ITSM portal or on their workstation, tablet or mobile phone. Depending on the attack vector and use cases that trigger a response, the new push-button approach allows for threat responders within Proficio’s SOC team or a client’s security team to undertake further validation before taking an action like isolating an endpoint or suspending a user account.
“Proficio has always been known for our innovation and was the first in our category to truly offer the “response” capability that is a critical part of Managed Detection and Response (MDR),” says Brad Taylor, CEO of Proficio. “Many of our clients do not have a staff on 24/7, which is why they partner with Proficio. With these new capabilities, we have taken our response capabilities to a new level and given our clients even more peace of mind that their networks are protected around the clock.”
Proficio continues to invest in their MDR capabilities, adding enhancements including data enrichment of alert notifications, so Proficio’s SOC team can more efficiently respond to alerts and provide quick actions for critical threats. With Proficio’s robust service offering, which includes Risk-Based Vulnerability Management (RBVM), Identity Threat Detection and Response, and Managed Infrastructure Services, their clients have access to a full-service cybersecurity solution that can be customized to fit their security and compliance needs.
