Fortra™’s Alert Logic is the only SaaS-enabled managed detection and response (MDR) provider that delivers comprehensive coverage for public clouds, on-premises, and hybrid environments. Since no level of investment prevents or blocks 100% of attacks, you need to continuously identify and address breaches or gaps before they cause real damage. With limited expertise and a cloud-centric mandate, this level of security can seem out of reach. Our cloud-native technology and white-glove team of security experts protect organizations 24/7.

Service includes SOAR capabilities as part of its comprehensive MDR solution. With ransomware attacks and staff shortages on the rise, organizations are increasingly entrusting cybersecurity partners to bring proven technology and a deep bench of experts to help minimize damage and disruption to their operations. Alert Logic MDR with Alert Logic Intelligent Response ensures customers have a flexible, scalable, and integrated approach to protect their entire IT estate. By implementing and testing automated security response playbooks and use cases for AWS environments, customers helped define Alert Logic’s intelligent response capabilities. The company has invested in a broad log ingestion ecosystem, scaling outcomes through analytics while implementing machine learning and building extensions into IT and security platforms through API-based connections. Fortra’s Alert Logic MDR provides visibility into pre- and post-breach environments, analyzing data and producing actionable insights, enabling response actions across network, endpoint, and cloud environments.

Alert Logic’s automated response solution includes capabilities for blocking cyber attackers, threat containment, and host isolation. Each use case is critical for preventing attacks or minimizing the impact of successful attacks. Organizations can solicit manual approvals as part of the automated workflow. This allows for tuning prior to full automation, or to adjust the automated response posture according to risk profile of the asset or asset group, type or criticality of the incident.
