DartPoints launched an updated managed detection and response (MDR) product. The product combines MDR, endpoint detection and response (EDR), extended detection and response (XDR), and security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) into one complete solution with support and monitoring by DartPoints experts. 

Brad Alexander, CTO for DartPoints “Executives and security leaders know they need a multi-layered cybersecurity strategy that combines MDR, EDR, SOAR, and XDR solutions, but increasingly, they don’t have the in-house resources to make that happen. Plus, with the hundreds of tools and providers on the market, analysis paralysis sets in. We are proud to help our clients by bringing these best-in-class security vendors and technologies together into one comprehensive, airtight solution.” 

The prevalence of ransomware and other cybersecurity incidents makes it more important than ever to have a solution that can quickly identify threats across endpoints, networks, clouds, and SaaS applications. 

The enhanced MDR offering from DartPoints addresses a number of flaws in traditional antivirus and security solutions, including the exorbitantly high number of alerts and false positives. The solution is designed for high-risk, compliance-sensitive verticals like finance, government, manufacturing, education, and healthcare. It offers advanced threat detection, continuous threat hunting, 24-hour monitoring, and investigations. 

The improved product will be especially helpful to organizations with compliance, standard, or framework requirements, those looking to purchase or renew cyber insurance, and those without their own security operations center. 

An average of 270 cyberattacks per company are expected in 2021, up 31% from the year before, according to a global survey of nearly 4,800 executives, as detailed in Accenture’s State of Cybersecurity Resilience 2021 report. Ransomware attacks, meanwhile, nearly doubled in 2021. According to IBM’s most recent Cost of a Data Breach Report, in 2022 the average cost of a data breach will reach a record high of $4.35 million.
