Kaspersky Managed Detection and Response (MDR) helps organizations to complement existing detection capabilities or to expand limited in-house resources to protect their infrastructure from the growing number and complexity of threats in real time. We collect telemetry from clients’ networks and analyze it using machine learning and artificial intelligence, plus human threat-hunting analysts. Kaspersky SOC investigates alerts and notifies the client if there is something bad going on, providing response actions and recommendations.
