What does MDR mean?

Managed Detection and Response is a program that manages, detects, and responds to cybersecurity threats. MDR uses technology and highly trained security analysts to constantly monitor network activity and alert IT of any suspicious activity. In the event of an actual attack, MDR responds immediately in order to mitigate and prevent further damages.

MDR solutions also help companies meet regulatory compliance requirements, especially in those industries that are highly targeted by cybercriminals, such as government, healthcare, and financial services.



About Critical Insight

Critical Insight is the only cybersecurity-as-a-service provider that prepares, monitors and responds to cyber threats, going beyond SOC-as-a-service offerings typical of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offerings.

With a focus on organizations that deliver critical services – hospitals, local governments, utilities, school systems, and more – we provide end-to-end support to those with limited security teams or budgets to handle threats proactively and as they occur.

Based in Bremerton and Seattle, Washington, Critical Insight is a venture-backed company founded by former CISOs in the public sector. We are committed to training new analysts and providing the most up-to-date cybersecurity protection.
