Flex Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

We have you covered from EDR to XDR

Whether you are seeking Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) or Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Vertek has you covered. We leverage a robust, world-class Security Information Event Management (SIEM)  platform to ingest security related event data from across your enterprise. But we do more than leverage security technology to monitor traffic, authenticate users, protect data, and prevent malware. Vertek normalizes vulnerability and threat data into actionable intelligence and provides extended response services that eliminate threats to your business.

Simplifying Flex MDR, EDR & XDR

Many organizations are looking to understand the differences between Flex Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), and Extended Detection and Response (XDR). The reality is each of these approaches to detection and response are necessary as you build a layered security model that protects your data and systems from multiple attack vectors, modern ransomware, and social engineering attacks.

Unlike traditional EDR solutions, Vertek’s Flex MDR and Managed Threat Intelligence (MTI) services are built on top of a Security Information Event Management (SIEM) platform – which is essential for organizations seeking enterprise-wide monitoring, detection, and response coverage, as well as advance their information security program and reduce risk. Vertek’s Flex MDR remotely delivers modern security operations center (SOC) capabilities focused on quickly detecting, investigating and actively mitigating incidents for clients of any size and industry. Vertek’s Flex MDR reduces the risk of data breaches by staying ahead of potential attacks with security POD-enabled resource agility, flexibility, and scalability, backed by DevSecOps, Compliance and Cloud Service resources.

Vertek's Flex MDR solution is powered by a platform offering over 500 integrations for case management, data enrichment, email and messaging, endpoint protection, forensics and malware, IT service management, network security, and SIEM. This gives Vertek's clients the peace of mind that comes with knowing their security is in the hands of experts employing highly capable tools.

The SIEM provides a single pane of glass for security management by aggregating logs from cloud and on-premises technologies. Different members of your organization can leverage SIEM in different ways:

Security Engineers
Create alarm, filtering/suppression, notification, and in some cases response rules to automate incident response actions and stop threats in real-time.
Security Analysts
Perform threat hunting activities and investigate security alarms and surrounding events.
Security/Risk Officers
Provide report evidence for system security assessments and compliance audits.
Vertek has deployed our Flex Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Managed Threat Intelligence (MTI) services within over a dozen of the most heavily regulated industries.
