Critical Insight Announces Launch of MXDR with Cyber Risk Quantification Platform to Better Defend Customers and Improve Executive Reporting

Cybersecurity-as-a-Service Provider Extends CyberSaint and Stellar Cyber Technology to Critical Infrastructure Customer Base

SEATTLE, WA –  Critical Insight, the Cybersecurity-as-a-Service provider specializing in helping critical organizations Prepare, Detect, and Respond, announced the company’s move to Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR).

Critical Insight’s evolved monitoring platform provides Critical Insight’s expert security analysts the visibility, detection, and response capabilities necessary in today’s threat environment. The enhancements include key features for customers who wish to interact directly with the Open XDR platform. Integrated with the full toolset of Critical Insight’s Security Operations Center (SOC), the 24/7/365 MXDR service will help customers rapidly identify, respond to, and recover from cyber-attacks. MXDR customers can additionally map the progress of their overall security journey with a fully integrated overlay of cyber risk reporting metrics within a variety of standards and regulatory frameworks.  

The evolution of Critical Insight’s platform comes at a crucial time when threat actors are altering and improving their tactics. Critical organizations need three things: (1) best-of-breed tools, (2) subject-matter experts who know how to get the most out of them, (3) and a way to measure success. Critical Insight now provides all three within a single subscription program.  

“With today’s launch, Critical Insight is providing the industry’s first holistic MXDR platform that not only guides cybersecurity teams through the detection of, and response to, a cyber incident but also enables security leadership to effectively quantify cyber risk to report to the board and other key stakeholders,” said Fred Langston, Chief Product Officer at Critical Insight. “Security leaders across healthcare, government, and other critical infrastructure entities are required to report on key cyber risk metrics as a key indicator of the overall cyber resilience of the organization. Now, they can assess, track and report on critical enterprise risk metrics and dramatically decrease the time to detect, respond to, and recover from attacks themselves by leaning on Critical Insight’s world-class security experts coupled with next-generation security services.” 

The new Critical Insight cybersecurity-as-a-service platform is superior to EDR-centric MDR solutions because it provides wider, more comprehensive threat coverage and helps future-proof customers as attacker techniques and technology change.
