Critical Insight From Critical Insight Recognized in Gartner Research 2020 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services

Seattle, WA — Critical Insight®, the provider of Critical Insight™ Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced that it has been identified as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services report, named in the Managed Detection and Response category listed in this research.[1] 

“Our customers sleep better at night because they have 24x7 security from real experts leveraging great technology. MDR lowers their risk of an impactful breach,” said Garrett Silver, CEO of Critical Insight. “We believe being named by Gartner as a Representative Vendor reinforces our solution's value to protect and defend highly-regulated networks and mission critical assets.”

Critical Insight has been recognized as a Representative Vendor by Gartner for the third year in a row in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services. The company was previously recognized under the company’s former name, Critical Insight.

“Many MDR providers target a few verticals where they can offer more-specific expertise and services, such as critical infrastructure and manufacturing, or healthcare, which have privacy, safety and reliability risk concerns,” the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services explains. “Security leaders are increasingly cognizant that reducing the time to detect a threat is meaningless without a corresponding reduction in the time to respond to a threat to enable a return to a known good state.”

Critical Insight’s Critical Insight™ MDR reduces threat dwell time from months to minutes, stopping bad actors quickly to minimize harm to an organization. The Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service is purpose-built for highly-regulated networks and combines a dedicated team of Security Analysts with next-generation technologies to provide real-time threat detection, investigation, and response.

The Critical Insight MDR suite of solutions offers a full-service security and compliance suite to existing infrastructure with Managed Detection & Response, Continuous Vulnerability Identification (CVI), and Secure Log Management, and vCISO & SME Advising. The company also recently announced the addition of Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) capabilities, part of the Critical Insight Rapid Quarantine (CIRQ) offering.
