BlueVoyant, a global analysis-based cybersecurity company, has announced the availability of its managed detection and response (MDR) service for Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (D-ATP), a next-generation unified antivirus (NGAV) and detection of endpoints and response platform (EDR).
“Adding Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection to BlueVoyant’s 100% cloud-based technology portfolio promotes BlueVoyant’s goal of offering first-rate technologies and services to businesses of all sizes,” said Jim Rosenthal, CEO of BlueVoyant.
“Given Microsoft’s vision of unified, integrated and cloud-based security, we recognize the profound strategic and technical value of adding Microsoft Defender ATP to our MDR services as part of our wider strategic integration with Microsoft security technologies in our portfolio of managed services. “
BlueVoyant’s MDR service is designed for new and existing Microsoft Defender ATP customers who are looking for an elite security operations partner. MDR provides support in monitoring, investigating, responding and mitigating advanced endpoint attacks.
The managed service includes initial configuration, continuous policy management, optimization, monitoring, response and correction of advanced cyber attacks, supported by 24/7 security operations.
“By combining our Microsoft security portfolio with BlueVoyant security services, we enable our customers to modernize their security capabilities focused on cyber threat detection and response,” said Ann Johnson, Corporate Vice President, Cybersecurity Solutions Group, Microsoft Corp.
“Cyber security is complex, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Promoting our security relationship with BlueVoyant helps organizations simplify their security operations and scale them down as they grow.”
BlueVoyant provides customized, real-time threat response and resolution by disrupting malicious processes, isolating devices and manually preventing persistence and lateral movement associated with sophisticated attacks.
BlueVoyant incorporates customer-led rules of engagement (ROE) that allow immediate and decisive actions to stop threats that could paralyze a network from non-critical events where a lower level response may be appropriate.
