Benefits of our XDR for Cloud service

Advanced automation for AI for fast response

Our MDR services are built to use advanced automation, AI and machine learning capabilities to automatically investigate and respond to threats across your cloud services against standard and bespoke security playbooks. By reducing alert noise, advanced and high-risk attacks are prioritised and investigated by our skilled CSOC team for rapid threat removal.

We believe in working in partnership together, building custom rules and playbooks to meet your unique requirements, knowledge sharing and ensuring regular service governance and account management to advise and support your long-term security strategy.

Proactive threat reduction and prevention

As well as reducing the impact of attacks, we work with you to reduce the future likelihood of attacks as we believe prevention is the best approach. We do this through advanced threat hunting, proactive blocking of emerging threats and providing ongoing security recommendations to feed into your wider security strategy to continually improve your security posture.

Risk reduction

Overall, with proactive threat detection, investigation, hunting and response, your organisation is better protected, and cyber risk is greatly reduced. This helps you to reduce cyber insurance premiums, meet compliance regulations and benefit from greater peace of mind against growing costly attacks.
