Threat Notification Isn’t the Solution – It’s a Starting Point

Other managed detection and response (MDR) services simply notify you of attacks or suspicious events. Then it’s up to you to manage things from there.

With Sophos MTR, your organization is backed by an elite team of threat hunters and response experts who take targeted actions on your behalf to neutralize even the most sophisticated threats.

Complete Control and Transparency

We do the work, but you own the decisions. This means you 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. Weekly and monthly reports let you know what is happening in your environment and what steps have been taken to keep you safe.

Notify Icon


We notify you about the detection and provide details to help you with prioritization and response.



We work with your internal team or external point(s) of contact to respond to the detection.



We handle containment and neutralization actions and inform you of the action(s) taken.

Machine-Accelerated Human Response

Built on our Intercept X Advanced with EDR technology, Sophos MTR fuses machine learning technology and expert analysis for improved threat hunting and detection, deeper investigation of alerts, and targeted actions to eliminate threats with speed and precision.

Bring Your Own Endpoint Protection

Sophos MTR is built on top of Intercept X, the world’s best endpoint protection. However, for those organizations who want to retain their non-Sophos endpoint protection platform, Sophos Managed Threat Detection offers an alternative solution.

Managed Threat Detection provides 24/7 threat monitoring and detections that existing third-party endpoint protection solutions may miss. The service is compatible with third-party endpoint protection products, which means organizations can continue to use their current endpoint protection while still being monitoring by Sophos MTR experts in “Notify” only mode.


The Capabilities of a Modern SOC Delivered as a Fully-Managed Service

Sophos MTR features two service tiers (Standard and Advanced) to provide a comprehensive set of capabilities for organizations of all sizes and maturity levels.

Beyond the Endpoint

To have the most complete picture of a customer’s environment, analysts need the broadest range of telemetry to ensure they have both the visibility and context to provide the absolute best protection. Sophos MTR goes beyond the endpoint adding in telemetry from other sources including network data, and cloud data. By extending visibility MTR operators can enrich endpoint investigations, better detect suspicious activity, and quickly neutralize active threats.
