Optiv MXDR Wins Overall Incident Response Solution of the Year Award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough

Solution Honored for Breakthrough Innovation


Denver — Oct. 13, 2022 — Navigating today’s cyber threat landscape requires an innovative and holistic approach while relying on trusted and integrated solutions to maintain a resilient cybersecurity posture.


Optiv, the cyber advisory and solutions leader, is helping clients do just that with its Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) service, which has been named Overall Incident Response Solution of the Year in the 6th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program.


MXDR Honored for Breakthrough Innovation

Launched in August 2021, Optiv’s MXDR service is a fully managed, cloud-based, next-generation advanced threat detection and response service. MXDR ingests data across various layers of technologies to correlate, normalize, enrich and enable automated responses to malicious activity in real time. It’s also the only unified platform that automates incident investigation –– enrichment, analysis, classification and response –– rather than relying on humans.


By combining automated incident investigation with environment-spanning threat visibility and real-time actionable insights, MXDR enables customers to:


  • Streamline and accelerate detection and response
  • Prioritize threats that need to be addressed
  • Reduce attack surface
  • Remain confident they have the right set of security tools and that they are integrated and automated


“Optiv’s MXDR is a simplified, yet innovative, approach to threat detection and response focused on the endpoint, providing customers with critical context to understand risk,” said Rocky Destefano, Optiv’s chief technology officer. “We continue to enhance our MXDR service to ensure our clients maintain a resilient security posture despite the threats facing them.”


Since its launch, Optiv has expanded its MXDR service, helping clients ease the burden of safeguarding critical data, applications and systems in the cloud (public or multi-cloud) in near real-time by partnering with an all-star roster of integrated platforms.


“As the threat landscape continues to evolve, organizations understand how critical cyber resiliency is today,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Optiv’s MXDR service delivers on this challenging landscape, offering a technology-independent solution that enables clients to reveal known and emerging threats, take rapid and decisive action, and protect against the most consequential risks.”


CyberSecurity Breakthrough is a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market. This year’s awards program attracted more than 4,100 nominations from more than 20 countries.
