Sophos Managed Data Response


‘Cyber Security has become too great for most organisations to manage effectively.’


The threat landscape is evolving at an alarming pace, with cybercriminals becoming more adept at bypassing traditional security measures. Cyber Security is expected to grow twice as fast as EMEA Mid-Market. Faced with an average of 17,000 security alerts a week, security professionals are constantly being asked to prioritise and identify which alerts to investigate. As organisations invest in innovative technologies to stay competitive, they inadvertently create new attack surfaces for malicious actors to exploit. This has led to a pressing need for more robust and dynamic cybersecurity solutions. To counter these threats, cybersecurity solutions are continuously evolving. One such solution that has gained prominence is Sophos Managed Data Response (MDR).
