London, 3rd April 2023 – Integrity360, one of the fastest-growing and largest independent pure-play cyber security specialists in the UK and Ireland, today announced that it has been named as a Representative Vendor* in the 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Services.
This is the first time the company has been listed in the Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Services, and Integrity360 is the only listed vendor headquartered in Ireland and one of only four UK vendors named in 2023. The company was also listed as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner Market Guide for Managed Security Services (MSS) in 2022 and 2020.
MDR is a high-growth, established market and Gartner predict that by 2025, 60% of organisations will be actively using remote threat disruption and containment capabilities delivered directly by MDR providers, up from 30% today.
The Market Guide recognises that successful MDR service providers offer a focus on high-fidelity threat detection, investigation and mitigative response with high verbosity, and human interpretable reporting aligned to business-focused risks.
Integrity360 believes its MDR offering delivers on all of these points with real-time threat detection, proactive threat hunting, incident containment and response, security incident analysis and threat intelligence, compliance reporting, and 24/7 monitoring to businesses across Ireland and the UK.
As well as enhancing organisations’ detection and response capabilities and enabling protection of systems and data, the service provides businesses with access to on-demand and proactive support via Integrity360’s experienced security team.
To deliver its MDR service, Integrity360 leverages the latest threat intelligence and state-of-the-art solutions to identify new threat actor Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) across networks, endpoints, servers, and the cloud.
Gartner includes a range of providers in the research to ensure coverage from a geographical, vertical and capabilities perspective. Those organisations listed are those that are visible to Gartner clients based on inquiries and represent relevant levels of both global distribution and size.
Richard Ford, Chief Technology Officer, Integrity360: “We are delighted to be named as a Representative Vendor by Gartner for our MDR offering. As cyber threats continue to evolve in frequency, sophistication and efficacy, it’s crucial that companies roll out a comprehensive service to meet their security needs. That’s where MDR comes in and we believe this recognition is testament not just to the service we deliver but to our team’s expertise in this space.”
