MTR | The Day Managed Threat Detection Saved the Day

Let’s take a look at how MTR saved this business from disaster—and what you can learn from their experience.

MTR | The Day Managed Threat Detection Saved the Day

It was a typical day at the office. Everything seemed to be running smoothly until the network administrator received an alert from the company’s managed threat detection service. He quickly realized that a malicious hacker had infiltrated the network and begun making changes to the system. Fortunately, the managed threat detection service identified the attack before it could do any real damage and alerted the administrator before it was too late. This is just one example of how managed threat detection can protect your business from disaster. Let’s take a look at what happened.

The Attack

The attack began with a malicious email sent to one of the company's employees, which contained a link that, when clicked, opened up a backdoor into their system. Once inside, the hacker attempted to make changes to certain files and databases in order to gain access to sensitive information such as customer records and financial data.

The Response

Fortunately, managed threat detection services work around-the-clock scanning for signs of malicious activity on networks and alerting administrators when needed. In this case, the managed threat detection service identified suspicious activity within minutes of it beginning and alerted the network administrator immediately so they could take action and shut down the attack before any real damage was done.

The Results

Thanks to its managed threat detection service, this company was able to identify and respond quickly to an attack that would have otherwise caused major disruption or even serious financial losses had it gone unnoticed for even longer than it did. It also served as an important reminder for businesses that having proper security measures in place is essential for protecting their systems from malicious attacks like this one.

In today’s digital world, cybercrime continues to be a growing problem for businesses of all sizes—from large corporations to small startups—so it’s essential that all companies take steps towards securing their networks against potential threats. Managed threat detection services are one way of doing this by providing round-the-clock monitoring of your network and alerting you whenever they detect suspicious activity or signs of an attack so you can act quickly before any real damage is done.

If your business doesn’t already have such a service in place, now is definitely a good time to get one!
