Managed Detection and Response (MDR)
Safeguard and Secure
Imagine having proactive cybersecurity protection to defend and respond to threats around the clock, 24x7x365. A proactive shared model to protect your institution with a centralized point of command answering cyber threat intel through Security Operation Center (SOC) managed services.
Giving you powerful learning capabilities, Managed Detection and Response is designed with higher education institutions in mind, addressing the cybersecurity skills gap and giving you time back to deploy important resources in other ways.
Reduce the time to detect and respond and achieve more accurate outcomes leading to a more robust cyber resilience today.
MDR provides end-to-end, intelligence-driven, integrated threat monitoring and incident response based upon industry best practices. These components collectively provide higher education institutions with a proactive detection and response capability.

As education undergoes changes driven by digital innovation, leaders must implement strategies to meet the needs of students, today and tomorrow.
Universities face the familiar challenges of cybersecurity—phishing attacks, unsecured personal devices, a lack of security awareness to identify and access management—but need to contend with them in the context of a highly distributed technology environment. Open networks may not be properly monitored for unauthorized access, unsafe internet surfing habits and malware infections. Various faculties run their own IT and security departments making enforcement of streamlined security practices difficult.
Most institutions lack formal governance structures to address security and compliance. It’s rare to find roles such as a Chief Information Security Officer or established compliance teams. Their absence makes it hard to implement and manage centralized IT security policies and standards. The nature of what institutions do and how they’re organized exposes them to some unique cybersecurity challenges.
