N-able introduced N-able Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (Managed EDR), a threat monitoring, hunting, and response service designed for managed service providers (MSPs) who have standardized on N-able Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR).
Managed EDR augments EDR by providing dedicated managed security services. Managed EDR, powered by SentinelOne Vigilance Respond, uses SentinelOne’s 24×7 security operations center (SOC) and Vigilance security experts to monitor, review, and respond to every product-identified threat that puts your network at risk.
Troels Rasmussen, GM of security products at N-able stated, “We are delighted to continue building our relationship with SentinelOne; we recognize how much our partners value important world-class cybersecurity solutions, and the ability to overcome the day-to-day challenges they face to keep themselves and their customer endpoints secure.
Managed EDR can help bridge the current security skills gap we are facing, providing elite security experts as an extension to an existing security team. It also provides global, 24×7 peace of mind by offloading day-to-day operations, allowing teams to focus on more strategic initiatives. Whether you have a well-established SOC in place or you are looking to expand your security practice, enlisting the help of SentinelOne’s security experts can help you meet your specific security and business needs.”
For MSPs that have standardized on EDR, N-able’s Managed EDR functions as an extension of their IT or SOC teams, with security analysts available 24/7/365, allowing them to refocus time and resources on higher-value initiatives.
The industry is facing challenges, such as historically high labor shortages. According to the (ISC)2 2022 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, the global security workforce gap has grown by 26%, with 3.4 million more people required to effectively secure businesses.
Building an internal security team can be difficult: finding staff, paying for staff, and providing 24-7 coverage are all challenges. The introduction of Managed EDR enables N-able partners to scale their security operations, which are supported by an enterprise grade SOC, while supplementing their current security team with native EDR technology and expertise to help navigate the challenges of hiring and retaining talent.
This enables MSPs to reduce time-consuming staff efforts and divert the costs of developing a new technology stack, while also providing the opportunity to add net new capabilities, such as revenue from advanced security services.
