Who's watching your network?
A good cybersecurity defense includes implementing tools like SIEM, UTM firewalls and advanced endpoint security technology. However, without the human component—someone to actively utilize the data coming from these tools—you are essentially still at square one. That’s because it’s not necessarily how good your tools are, but who’s leveraging those tools to keep watch over your environment.
According to Gartner: “The goal of MDR services is to rapidly identify and limit the impact of security incidents to customers. These services are focused on remote 24/7 threat monitoring, detection and targeted response activities. MDR providers may use a combination of host and network-layer technologies, as well as advanced analytics, threat intelligence, forensic data, and human expertise for investigation, threat hunting and response to detected threats.” (Gartner, “Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services,” July 2019.)

ControlScan MDR Stands Guard
ControlScan performs Managed Detection and Response (MDR) specifically for organizations that don’t have the internal expertise and/or bandwidth to keep a vigilant watch over the security of their IT environment. We employ the right people and the right processes to efficiently supplement your organization’s security threat management efforts.
Our team identifies intrusions as they are happening, so you can extract them from your environment before any damage is done:
- Defining, implementing and updating security rules
- Running targeted threat hunting sequences to trace anomalies
- Examining alerts to separate true concerns from false positives
- Addressing and appropriately escalating threats in real-time
"ControlScan has my back by being responsive to security alerts and communication."

Removing the Burden of Log Management
A single network device can generate thousands of logs each day, and an organization may have hundreds of network devices and servers. The overwhelming amount of log messages can obscure network visibility, overtax internal resources and increase operational costs.
As part of our MDR service, we collect, aggregate and normalize your organization's log data from servers, endpoints, applications and security devices for compliance and infrastructure management. Our expert security analysts monitor and analyze your log events, freeing up your IT resources to focus on growing your business.
