Managed Detection and Response Service from Fidelis Cybersecurity Bolsters Internal Security Teams with 24x7 Threat Monitoring, Hunting, Detection and Response


Fidelis Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service delivers
industry-best talent and solutions to proactively hunt threats, speed up
investigations, and stop detected threats

Rates of cybercrime and nation-state espionage are increasing while the
cybersecurity skills gap continues to grow. To better support security
teams and operations in this environment, Fidelis Cybersecurity, a
leading automated detection and response provider, today announced the
release of a new managed detection and response (MDR) service. The 24x7 Fidelis
MDR service
provides a team of highly-skilled security experts who
leverage patented Fidelis technology to analyze rich network and
endpoint metadata, content, behavioral and asset characteristics, as
well as enterprise IoT devices to aid in hunting and investigations.

Earlier this year, Fidelis commissioned The
State of the SOC study
that affirmed just how overwhelmed security
teams are today. Over 60% of respondents said they were unable to triage
even a quarter of the alerts they receive daily. Even with leading-edge
security technology in place, Security Operations Centers (SOCs) often
don't have the staff or skills in-house to effectively monitor and
respond to threats, much less execute threat hunting to better
understand and protect against future attacks. These needs were found to
be especially acute at smaller enterprises that did not have a Security
Operations Center.

"With the risk enterprises face each day, organizations need more than
just an MSSP partner," said Nick Lantuh, President and CEO at Fidelis
Cybersecurity. "Our team of experts are true threat hunters, not just
alert watchers. Most come from US Government Department of Defense Cyber
Security Units and Intelligence Community backgrounds with deep hunting
and incident response experience. They are empowered by our advanced
analysis engine which provides rich metadata and content to expose and
understand the context behind an alert, to gain full life-cycle
visibility during an attack and to rapidly and accurately find, contain
and eradicate threats."

The Fidelis Cyber Threat Analysis Center is staffed 24x7 with security
operations professionals, forensic analysts, incident responders and
threat hunters, who have a strong pedigree of identifying, triaging and
responding to threats targeting enterprises of all sizes. The MDR team
uses the Fidelis
platform, which provides Endpoint
Detection and Response
, Network
Traffic Analysis
, Enterprise IoT visibility, Asset Discovery and Deception,
to identify, classify and protect an organization's digital assets.

By going beyond NetFlow data and instead analyzing the rich metadata and
content derived from Fidelis' patented Deep
Session Inspection®
of network traffic, the MDR team can understand
whether a document or executable has been seen before, what the file
type is, who authored it, who received a copy and who logged into the
machine that sent the document. These data-driven insights, combined
with Machine Learning and automation, aid the Fidelis MDR team with a
seamless incident response workflow, ensuring quick and accurate
detection and response that removes false positives and produces only
actionable intelligence.

"Our MDR team is equally versed in supporting large enterprises with
fully developed SOC and Incident Response teams, as it is supporting
organizations with less developed cyber-security capabilities," says
Lantuh. "For large enterprises with built out SOCs, Fidelis' MDR can
provide a SOC Augmentation Service delivering only actionable
intelligence based on findings within the Fidelis Infrastructure."

The Fidelis MDR service is one of the only offerings in the market to
incorporate deception technology which enables the classification of
assets and the deployments of breadcrumbs as lures to decoys, fake file
systems, enterprise IoT support, plus Man-in-the-Middle detection and
Active Directory fake accounts with activity on decoys.

Fidelis MDR is part of a wider portfolio of service offerings including Incident
and Security
which include Incident Response Readiness, Security
Operations and Security Program reviews.
