NCC Group’s MDR solution listed as a ‘strong performer’ by independent research firm.
A leading analyst firm has published its 2021 MDR report that also includes NCC Group, listing the global cyber security firm as a ‘strong performer’. In the report, the firm evaluates the top vendors within the fast-moving, cluttered and convoluted MDR marketplace.
NCC Group announced that Forrester Research Inc. has published it’s 2021 MDR Wave report, which lists global cyber security firm NCC Group as a ‘strong performer’. In the report, Forrester evaluates the top vendors within the fast-moving, cluttered and convoluted MDR marketplace.
The report, that evaluates 15 top MDR services providers, states, “Thinking like an attacker is a valuable skillset for defenders, which NCC Group injects into its MDR offering in a unique way. It combines this approach with threat intelligence, native offensive and defensive security research, and its 2015 acquisition of Fox-IT, which all allow NCC Group to meaningfully deliver MDR.”
19 criteria were taken into consideration by Forrester analysing the MDR market for this publication across three categories: current offering, strategy and market presence.
The report provides its readers insights into why managed detection and response is important, if MDR is relevant for their specific business and what they should expect from their MDR provider.
"Managed Detection and Response is increasingly becoming a crowded and highly confusing marketplace. Buyers looking for an established player in MDR that can offer real value should review the Forrester Wave to see who they should consider in their purchasing decisions," comments Tim Anderson, Commercial Director for NCC Group's Global Managed Services.
