Are you under attack?

Sophos Rapid Response provides incredibly fast assistance, identifying and neutralizing active threats against your organization, delivered by an expert team of incident responders.

Machine-Accelerated Human Response

Our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services fuse machine learning technology and expert analysis for improved threat hunting and detection, deeper investigation of alerts, and targeted actions to eliminate more sophisticated and complex threats.

Monitoring Isn’t the Solution.
It’s a Starting Point.

High-Fidelity Detections

High-Fidelity Detection

Going beyond traditional threat detection, we combine deterministic and machine learning models to spot suspicious behaviors and the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by the most advanced adversaries.

Proactive Defense

Proactive Defense

Intercept X proactively protects customer environments by combining threat intelligence with newly-discovered Indicators of Compromise (IoC) and Indicators of Attack (IoA) that are identified through analyst-led threat hunts.

Elite Expertise

Our highly-trained team of threat hunters, engineers, ethical hackers, and SOC specialists has your back 24/7, investigating anomalous behavior and responding to threats with speed and precision.

Continuous Posture Improvement

Outcome-Focused Security ™

Every hunt, investigation, and response results in actionable, decision-driving data  that is then used in automation to enhance configurations and detection capabilities.

Complete Control

Complete Control

You own the decisions. Control how and when potential incidents are escalated, what response actions (if any) you want us to take, and who should be included in communications.

Sophos MTR: Standard

Sophos MTR: Standard

  • 24/7 Lead-Driven Threat Hunting

    Confirmed malicious artifacts or activity (strong signals) are automatically blocked or terminated, freeing up threat hunters to conduct lead-driven threat hunts. This type of threat hunt involves the aggregation and investigation of causal and adjacent events (weak signals) to discover new Indicators of Attack (IoA) and Indicators of Compromise (IoC) that previously could not be detected.

  • Adversarial Detections

    Most successful attacks rely on the execution of a process that can appear legitimate to monitoring tools. Using proprietary investigation techniques, our team determines the difference between legitimate behavior and the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used by attackers.

  • Security Health Check

    Keep your Sophos Central products, beginning with Intercept X Advanced with EDR, operating at peak performance with proactive examinations of your operating conditions and recommended configuration improvements.

  • Activity Reporting

    Summaries of case activities allow for prioritization and communication – so your team knows what threats were detected and what response actions were taken within each reporting period.

Sophos MTR: Advanced

Includes all Standard features, plus the following:
  • 24/7 Leadless Threat Hunting

    Applying data science, threat intelligence, and the intuition of veteran threat hunters, we combine your company profile, high-value assets, and high-risk users to anticipate attacker behavior and identify new Indicators of Attack (IoA).

  • Dedicated Threat Response Lead

    When an incident is confirmed, a dedicated threat response lead is provided to directly collaborate with your on-premises resources (internal team or external partner) until the active threat is neutralized.

  • Direct Call-In Support

    Your team has direct call-in access to our security operations center (SOC). Our MTR Operations Team is available around the clock and backed by support teams spanning 26 locations worldwide.

  • Enhanced Telemetry

    Threat investigations are supplemented with telemetry from other Sophos Central products, extending beyond the endpoint to leverage automation and provide a full picture of adversary activities.

  • Proactive Posture Improvement

    Proactively improve your security posture and harden your defenses with prescriptive guidance for addressing configuration and architecture weaknesses that diminish your overall security capabilities.

  • Asset Discovery

    For both managed and unmanaged assets like IOT devices , we provide valuable insights during impact assessments, threat hunts, as well as part of proactive posture improvement recommendations.
