Managed Threat Response – What is it?

What is (MTR) Managed Threat Response?

MTR stands for Managed Threat Response. In short, it’s a team of Sophos expert threat hunters that review server and endpoint alerts actively 24/7. They then use Sophos Server, Endpoint and Firewall services we supply, to stop active attacks.

Threat Notification Isn’t the Solution – It’s a Starting Point

Other managed detection and response (MDR) services simply notify you of attacks or suspicious events. Then it’s up to you to manage things from there.

With Sophos MTR, your organisation is backed by an elite team of threat hunters and response experts who take targeted actions on your behalf to neutralise even the most sophisticated threats.

Take Action Against Threats With a Dedicated Team of Response Experts

Sophos MTR arms you with a highly-trained team of threat hunters and response experts who:

  • Proactively hunt for and validate potential threats and incidents
  • Use all available information to determine the scope and severity of threats
  • Apply the appropriate business context for valid threats
  • Initiate actions to remotely disrupt, contain, and neutralise threats
  • Provide actionable advice for addressing the root cause of recurring incidents

Complete Control and Transparency

We do the work, but you own the decisions. This means you control how and when potential incidents are escalated, what response actions (if any) you want us to take, and who should be included in communications. Weekly and monthly reports let you know what is happening in your environment and what steps have been taken to keep you safe
