CLEVELAND, Sept. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Binary Defense, a leader in the cybersecurity market, is pleased to announce that the company has been identified for the second year in a row as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner July 2019 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services (MDR) report (available to Gartner subscribers).
The Gartner Market Guide defines MDR as follows: "The goal of MDR services is to rapidly identify and limit the impact of security incidents to customers. These services are focused on remote 24/7 threat monitoring, detection and targeted response activities. MDR providers may use a combination of host and network-layer technologies, as well as advanced analytics, threat intelligence, forensic data, and human expertise for investigation, threat hunting and response to detected threats." According to the guide, "by 2024, 25% of organizations will be using MDR services, up from less than 5% today."
MDR software looks at all types of threats that can affect an endpoint (desktops, laptops, notebooks, and so on) and is able to track what's happening at a system level on each endpoint, and, using analytics, determining whether abnormal activities are occurring. If malicious activity is discovered, an alarm is generated. The Binary Defense security experts monitor these alarms, dig deeper to see what is really going on, and communicate in real time to customers to help them take action to protect their business.
"We're pleased to be recognized by Gartner as a Representative Vendor in this Market Guide," said David Kennedy, Binary Defense Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder. "We believe this is a testament to our flagship solution, Binary Defense MDR, which can help companies keep their data secure with our around-the-clock monitoring, detection and prevention."
Recently named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies, Binary Defense has seen substantial market success with its proprietary MDR solution. "MDR has become a critical need for businesses. Antivirus software is only going to catch commodity threats. Our MDR solution detects unusual behavioral-based activities that wouldn't be caught by antivirus. Combine that with our cybersecurity experts who are on the lookout for threats 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year," Kennedy said. "All with the goal of keeping our customers' data safe."
