Optiv MXDR enhances detection and response with expanded cloud integration
Enterprise security teams face unprecedented attack surface expansion as technology evolution, employee fatigue and complicated cloud or digital transformation initiatives strain resources.
Optiv announced the expansion of its Managed XDR (MXDR) offering to ease clients’ burden of safeguarding critical data, applications and systems in the cloud (public or multi-cloud) in near real-time with an all-star roster of integrated platforms, including:
- Amazon Web Services (AWS), which provides clients with additional detection and response capabilities to protect them from increasingly complex cyberattacks.
- Google Cloud (GCP), which adds comprehensive visibility and workload protection at scale across multi-cloud environments.
- Microsoft Azure, which offers extensive data protection and integrated services.
Users rely on Optiv MXDR’s unique ability to aggregate, organize and prioritize security alerts and configuration changes and correlate them across multiple cloud sources. By chaining services together with leading platforms, Optiv streamlines data collection and enrichment to provide customizable insights to strengthen security controls. Clients are able to address threat detection and visibility on a scale that meets their individual level of cloud adoption. In addition, the service’s expansion ensures in-depth coverage and access to rapid investigation and response measures.
“Organizations require enhanced and fully integrated solutions to counter the evolving methods and increased number of cyberattacks by threat actors. As part of Optiv’s Advanced Detection and Response solution, MXDR and AWS, GCP and Azure help our clients reduce their risk and focus their valuable resources on the things that matter most,” said Rocky Destefano, Optiv’s chief technology officer. “By innovating with world-class cloud partners, we’re taking Optiv’s security analysis expertise to the next level and helping our clients secure their future by focusing on the very best of what the market has to offer.”
Optiv’s MXDR was launched in August 2021. A collaborative approach to cutting-edge services, products and technical experts is necessary to defend against a wide-range of adversaries. With expanded integration in the cloud, organizations have the potential to lean on Optiv to provide enhanced detection and response, quicker returns to operational normalcy and business-centric outcomes across every stage of the security lifecycle, no matter the level of maturity.
