The team at Nocwing is excited to offer a Managed Threat Response (MTR) add-on to our already industry leading antivirus software. What is Managed Threat Response? It’s a human-lead team of security professionals ready to respond to threats your organization might face 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  

The goal of adding MTR onto your antivirus is to minimize the time between detecting a malicious threat and responding to it. To quote our security partner Sophos,  

Today’s sophisticated attackers often exploit legitimate IT tools and security holes to penetrate their victim’s network. Every second counts when an adversary is in your environment. Yet all too often, defenders are slowed down by an overwhelming volume of alerts, limited visibility, a lack of insight, and slow, manual processes.
By optimizing prevention, Sophos enables defenders to focus on fewer, more accurate detections and streamline the investigation and response process.
To illustrate the point, I’d like to share data from Sophos Managed Threat Response (MTR), our 24/7/365 managed detection and response (MDR) service. The mean time to detect (MTTD) the attack is less than one minute. Enriched investigation techniques result in a mean time to investigate (MTTI) of 25 minutes, and the mean time to resolution (MTTR) is 12 minutes. This results in a total time from detecting the threat to resolving it of 38 minutes.
Let’s put those 38 minutes into perspective. According to the research firm Statista, the average duration of business interruption and downtime after a ransomware attack is 22 days. And that’s alongside the ever-increasing recovery costs, which have more than doubled in the past year.
