Optiv MDR Enables Organizations to Proactively Stay Ahead of Emerging Cyber Threats

Optiv has launched its managed detection and response service, Optiv MDR, on the Google Security Operations (SecOps) platform, enabling organizations to rapidly detect and respond to emerging threats with industry-leading managed threat detection and response capabilities.

Cybersecurity remains a top concern for enterprises as they look to invest in technology tools that enable timely, continuous detection and response to evolving threats. Managing those threats has proven to be a key business priority. A recent Optiv report shows that nearly 60% of organizations have increased cyber budgets year-over-year. And while organizations are investing in more technologies, 40% of security professionals believe they have too many; only 29% feel that they have the right number of tools.

Optiv MDR accelerates threat detection and response by leveraging the power of Google AI to analyze vast amounts of log data, supplement analyst capabilities with natural language queries, and identify threats and anomalies that indicate malicious activity. Optiv's proprietary data and detection engineering, SOAR, ITDR and lightning-fast log analysis further enhance capabilities.
