Inside the Optiv SOC

The threat landscape is growing in scale and complexity. Talent gaps and confusing tool integrations can limit threat management efficacy and speed.

We’ve seen it all. Leave the complexity to Optiv.

Optiv MDR service will help you shift from a reactive to proactive defense strategy, increase risk awareness, shorten response times and remain resilient—all at a predictable cost structure.

Why MDR?


Managed detection and response (MDR) is an outsourced technology and service that handles the integration, deployment, optimization and management of solutions within your environment. Technologies that Optiv MDR can help manage include endpoint detection and response (EDR), identity threat detection and response (ITDR), threat monitoring, log management and more depending on the needs of your business. You don't have to manage these challenges alone. Leave it to Optiv to help you reduce complexity and modernize your security operation.
Limited Visibility:
Without consistent solution assessment and data integration, security teams overlook critical vulnerabilities
Solution Complexity:
Too many disparate, non-integrated point solutions within an environment makes it difficult to manage and demonstrate ROI for each tool
Lack of Automation:
Whether it’s due to uncertainty around AI adoption or a hesitancy to adopt new capabilities, the absence of automation leads to crucial threat detection and response process inefficiencies
