The Need for Managed XDR



COVID changed the game for businesses, and attackers quickly took advantage.


  • Remote work models increased breach lifecycles by up to 58 days.*
  • Lack of security automation during this time prevented potential data breach cost reductions of 80%.* 
  • Attackers got even more creative and the average breach lifecycle grew to 287 days.* 


CISOs and CIOs from every industry have shared their frustrations when it comes to threat detection and response:


  • My staff is overwhelmed. We need a security partner who'll not just detect, but also initiate responses.
  • We’ve made investments in detection, but it’s created a lot of noise. So how do we prioritize the most important threats?
  • We are reactive. We need to identify known and unknown threats before they cause an incident.
  • Our technology footprint continues to increase; we need an advanced, automated solution to keep up.
  • We have a limited view into our networks. We think we know but I’m not truly confident in our capabilities.


That’s why we built Optiv Managed XDR. Together, we've got this.
