Our managed detection and response services is more than just a SOC

Many Security Operations Centers (SOCs) only focus on known threats, which means as threats evolve, incidents can go undetected and unmitigated for months or even years, allowing attackers to get comfy within an environment and wreak havoc. To detect and respond to both known and unknown threats quickly and thoroughly, Rapid7 Managed Detection and Response team members combine their personal expertise with our leading incident detection and user behavior analytics technology, InsightIDR.

Out of the great unknown

Great incident detection and response is more than what you know—it’s knowing what you don’t know too. Unlike other SOCs and managed security services, Managed Detection and Response incorporates four distinct methodologies to detect and validate threats before they’re reported with a nearly zero percent false positive rate:

  1. Threat intelligence to automate threat detection and response.
  2. User behavior analysis to detect insider threats and stolen credentials.
  3. Attacker behavior analysis to automate decision-making.
  4. Hunting methodology to identify unknown threats.

A security plan as unique as your organization

Your Managed Detection and Response team provides incident detection and response on applications, endpoints, and assets within your organization, including those in the cloud. What’s that look like for you? A Rapid7 Threat Assessment Manager works with your team for the first 30 days to understand your environment and make informed recommendations around identifying and assigning priorities. You will continue to meet with your Threat Assessment Manager monthly to ensure your plan is evolving with your needs. This initial 30 days combined with regular monitoring and hunting enables the team to detect and respond to threats quicker. And if we do find something, your team has a one-hour SLA for notifying you.

We’re ready to pivot, so you’re ready to respond

With Managed Detection and Response, you’re always prepared to deal with cyber threats. If there is an incident, such as a breach, the team is ready to pivot from detection to respond and act, and will work closely with you to create a remediation plan tailored to your organization.
