Companies are well protected from cyber attacks with the help of Underdefense services.
Medium-sized companies are increasingly facing various types of cyber attacks; underdefense managed detection and response services can strengthen the protection of corporate networks. For medium-sized companies, there is no 100% protection against cyber attacks. There will always be vulnerabilities, such as broken software, leaked passwords, and shadow computing, that resourceful hacker can exploit to infiltrate corporate networks. Underdefense experts are available to enterprises and provide effective Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Security Center (SOC) services. They provide security technology, knowledge, experience, and intuition.
Cyber attacks are becoming more sophisticated, and criminals target more and more medium-sized businesses. Building a high digital firewall is not enough to protect against increasingly sophisticated attacks. For example, it’s crucial to patch vulnerabilities early and detect attackers already lurking in your network. Especially for small businesses with limited technical and human resources, such intrusions are difficult to prevent, let alone counter.
Many companies do not have the budget to hire a team of skilled computer security professionals to handle this dangerous situation. Finding the expertise you need can be tricky, even if your company’s Security Center (SOC) is funded and staffed. Due to the lack of skilled personnel in this field, it is also difficult for large companies to build and maintain a talented team for the long term. As a result, more and more organizations are using external services as part of their Managed Detection and Response (MDR Underdefense) services. Depending on the agreed scope of services, the SOC will be part of this MDR. The ability to bring knowledge is no longer a pipe dream, even for mid-sized companies.
Underdefense’s cyber security assistance is also available for small businesses.
What is the added value for companies using an external SOC as part of their MDR? Security center specialists work for these customers with information from various sources. This primarily includes data collected internally through endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions. Then we combine the data collected by the security systems. Security incident management (SIEM) is threat information or data collected via telemetry from other endpoints and interpreted by machine learning. This allows you to identify abnormal behavior, such as fileless attacks precisely, to prevent further damage if the attack succeeds. Their help also will enable businesses to clean up networks faster. We encourage customers to improve their security constantly.
Different teams of experts are available to customers through external SOCs. Your first point of contact is the Security Account Manager, the liaison between you and the entire team of experts. It manages all security, evaluates all information based on corporate network information, and initiates further investigations if necessary. His advice to clients builds on the work of other experts in developing individual risk profiles and creating relevant security alerts. Experts also consider industry specifics of IT risk.
Reliable protection against malicious cyber attacks
The starting point is a detailed inventory of the customer’s IT and digital processes at the beginning of cooperation with the SOC. It should also reflect the user’s regular activity as accurately as possible, not only in risky situations but also distinguish normal behavior from fraudulent behavior.
Effective Underdefense IT security services are built on modern principles of combating cyber incidents.
Underdefense’s basic security techniques proactively filter out known malware and suspicious activity. This gives security analysts time to focus on unknown threats not recognized by the tools. Experts also check employees’ compliance with safety rules. Endpoint protection technologies can help mitigate the situation, but Underdefense’s team of experts is actively researching new attacks that specifically target customers, their technologies, and industries. First, check for processes that deviate from known behavior. In emergencies, a quick response is critical. SOC experts take all necessary measures even before reporting a potential cyber threat. These measures are agreed upon in advance with customers and service providers. For example, block IP addresses, reset passwords, shut down systems, or remove them from the network when a ransomware attack begins. Of course, what external service providers can do without consultation in emergencies does not undermine the foundation of a secure infrastructure. Reporting is critical given the documentation requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation. It’s nice to know that your customers are not without knowledge and can adapt. Clients can log into the MDR service system and see the same information as external experts. In addition, you can track past actions and draw certain conclusions.
Targeted cyber attacks, especially the most dangerous ones, are planned and carried out by people who play an essential role in defense, while attackers play on psychology. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can help detect attacks more quickly, including identifying anomalies in user behavior. However, this requires a well-trained and experienced analyst to use all available information and understand the intentions of a well-disguised cyber attacker.
Organizations with no budget to build their security center or want experienced security professionals to support their existing SOC can rely on MDR Underdefense to provide such an experienced team and added human resources. Thus, it significantly improves cyber security and adds an essential factor to the arsenal of technical protection solutions: the support of trained security analysts.
The evolution from protection to detection is called MDR.
At the beginning of 2022, cyber attacks are the biggest threat to business. The company’s field of activity plays a secondary role. Targets of cybercriminals include pizza chains, universities, hospitals, banks, railroad companies, and more. Hackers often don’t care who their target is. More important is the probability of a successful attack and what an attacker can achieve. Given enough resources and time, attackers can penetrate almost any system, even if a company maintains a high level of security on its corporate network. However, even the best firewall is no longer adequate if a hacker has compromised your system. Therefore, it is essential to find the attacker as soon as possible and limit his opportunities. Thus, detection and response must be the same for protection. Hackers may back off because they realize they’ve been caught or can’t seriously damage the network without significant effort. MDR services help protect your organization from cyber threats, including ransomware, malware, and phishing attacks. MDR protection also helps you meet standards and specific regulatory and industry certification requirements. This advantage cannot be overstated, given the importance of compliance in today’s business environment.
