What’s Managed Detection & Response?
Managed Detection & Response is an advanced managed service security offering that provides the entire lifecycle of a threat, starting with Intel on threat to threat hunting to security events monitoring, incident analysis, and incident response. Using advanced UBA and security posture of application, network and endpoints; MDR provides deeper insight and detection compared to legacy MSSPs In fact for quicker and more accurate response, MDR often makes use of AI and ML to investigate, automate, and orchestrate response.
Gartner: A larger piece of $90bn InfoSec market to be allocated to proactive threat detection by 2020
Increased adoption of managed detection and response services demonstrates that, in isolation, preventative security is no longer an effective way of defending against cyber-attacks.
Why MDR to Mitigate your Cyber Security Risk?
As per Gartner, there is a growing need of MDR to successfully mitigate cyber security risk and this is having a deep impact on the way businesses approach their security spend over the next half of the decade. According to the study, this ‘sends a clear message that prevention is futile unless it is tied into a detection and response capability’.
Modern threats cannot be detected and contained by combing through all of your IT data using sheer manual efforts. Our MDR solution employs AI and Automation along with manual intervention to solve this problem and provides an effective threat management system.
On top of this, it is equally challenging for many organizations to build next generation capabilities for threat detection and response. Therefore, Locuz MDR Services are packaged in a way to help you overcome these gaps by bringing AI, Automation, and People skills together to deliver end to end threat management.

The right security measures for your modern day Enterprise!
The Zero Trust Network, or Zero Trust Architecture, model was created in 2010 by John Kindervag, who at the time was a principal analyst at Forrester Research Inc.
Now, nine years later, CIOs, CISOs and other corporate executives are increasingly adopting Zero Trust Network as the model for an effective security. Zero Trust network is successful in eliminating data breaches by intrinsically removing the concept of trust from an Enterprise’s network architecture. The basic belief that Zero Trust operates within is “never trust, always verify.” Zero Trust is premeditated to safeguard modern digital environments by leveraging network segmentation, preventing lateral movement, providing threat prevention, and simplifying granular user-access control.
Gartner Inc., a tech research and advisory firm, pegged worldwide spending on information security products and services at $86.4 billion in 2017, up 7 percent over 2016. Gartner predicts spending has hit $93 billion in 2018.
At locuz too we have done away with the outdated assumption that everything inside an organization’s network should be trusted. At locuz we give you a service mesh that’s deeply entrenched on the principles of Zero Trust. We understand that Workloads are highly dynamic and move across multiple data centers and public, private, and hybrid clouds .Achieving Zero Trust is often perceived as costly and complex. However, Zero Trust is built upon your existing architecture and does not require you to rip and replace existing technology.
We follow a simple five step methodology to deploy, implement, and maintain Zero Trust for your Enterprise:
Identify the protect surface
Map the transaction flows
Build a Zero Trust Architecture
Create Zero Trust Policies
Monitor & Maintain
At locuz, we have evolved our Zero Trust Service offerings to be able to efficiently secure your modern day Enterprise:

Minimize cyber threats by Reducing Attack Surface
Modern organizations are faced with a greater volume and higher sophistication of cyber threats than ever before. This allows hidden vulnerabilities and weaknesses to arise, leading to drastically increased cyber risk. With the right combination of people, processes, and technology, it is possible to detect and contain even the most sophisticated cyber-attacks. But what could be better than having a very small percentage of risk factors that you need to worry about when it comes to cyber-attacks.
But keeping risk in check requires a systematic effort to reduce the attack surface. You can reduce your attack surfaces by minimizing the places where your organization is vulnerable to cyber threats and attacks. What’s most important is to understand what an attack surface is?
Here at Locuz, we see the attack surface as the entire network and software environment that is exposed to remote or local attacks. In simple words: an attack surface refers to all the ways your apps can possibly be exploited by attackers. This includes not only software, operating systems, network services, and protocols but also domain names and SSL certificates. Our security experts combine cutting-edge technologies and analysis procedures to uncover and fix hidden weaknesses in your security architecture.
How can locuz help you to reduce the attack surface?
There are several ways to reduce the attack surface, but at locuz we provide you with a suite of services to help that takes of security right from the perimeter to ensuring your applications are safe and secure:
