What is Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR)?

MXDR is the most advanced threat detection and response available today. It builds on previous generations (like MDR and XDR) to increase protection across your attack surface. Leveraging human and machine analysis, it provides 24x7 monitoring and detection, rapid investigation and mitigation, and expert threat identification and hunting.

You read the papers. Attackers are stealthy, relentless and motivated – and might use the same tools you do. They hide in your environment and quickly expand access.


Meanwhile you:


  • Deal with chaos – how many unintegrated tools are in your environment?
  • Have too much data from too many sources and not enough automation.
  • Don’t have the people … or you do, but they’re buried.


Enter Optiv MXDR. Rest easy. We’ve got this.


Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Defined


Managed detection and response (MDR) is an outsourced service that makes the benefits of tools like endpoint detection and response (EDR) accessible to customers of all security maturity levels. MDR providers combine specialized technology like EDR, network traffic analysis, deception platforms, threat intelligence and staff expertise to preempt intrusions in client networks. MDR providers can also provide specific recommendations for incident response.

Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) Defined


Building off MDR, MXDR is a next-gen advanced detection & response cloud platform, where the “X” is extending beyond traditional technology. Compared to DIY implementations of XDR, it’s a simplified approach focusing on the endpoint, providing critical supplemental technology and security skills. The platform integrates with existing infrastructure, offering correlation of real-time threat detection and incident validation. Always on, MXDR monitors and detects threats while automating response and remediation across all endpoints – a critical speed factor. Supportive SOC services offer rapid incident response to threats, including mitigation and remediation assistance.
