Our new service leverages Microsoft Defender and Microsoft Sentinel to provide a single ‘pane of glass’ across our client’s entire infrastructure.

In response to the growing demand for our Managed Security Services, we’ve launched a new Managed Extended Detection and Response (XDR) service.

The service enables organisations to detect threats and respond to incidents faster, whilst improving their investigation capabilities to counteract future cyber attacks.

The new managed service combines the endpoint focus of Microsoft Defender with the advanced AI technologies of Microsoft Sentinel to build a single, 360-degree view of our client’s infrastructures, spanning on-premises deployments, the Cloud, remote workers, and business-to-consumer platforms.

This holistic, real-time visibility shortens the window of opportunity for cybercriminals to infiltrate – or remain hidden within – business networks.

Threats are constantly evolving and hackers work tirelessly to find the cracks that inevitably emerge when organisations adopt emerging technologies and introduce new working practices.

As cybercriminals become more sophisticated and the attack surface continues to grow, traditional cyber security approaches of deploying isolated security tools offer limited protection.

This holistic, real-time visibility shortens the window of opportunity for cybercriminals to infiltrate – or remain hidden within – business networks.

In contrast, Kocho’s XDR service works to monitor, track, and contextualise all event data across endpoints, cloud workloads, and IoT devices.

It has the power to connect seemingly isolated, often minor incidents – such as unexpected login attempts or the receipt of a single phishing email – with other suspicious events to quickly uncover and mitigate the most serious and complex of threats.

Our XDR service is fully managed by the company’s security operations centre (SOC) in Cardiff. The service has been designed to help organisations that are built on Microsoft infrastructures to maximise their existing licensing agreements.

These licenses often include robust cyber protection, but few companies have the in-house resources to implement and manage these features to their full potential. This new XDR service helps companies unlock these capabilities, strengthening their ability to identify and withstand cyberattacks.

“We have to constantly improve our security standards, not just to keep up with cyber criminals’ evolving techniques, but also to keep pace with our customers’ changing infrastructure requirements, which now encompass the Cloud, IoT devices, mobile devices, and more,” said Neil Coughlan, our Chief Strategy Officer.

“This new XDR service joins the dots between all the different Microsoft solutions deployed within our customers’ infrastructures, empowering them to take charge of their cyber security and stay one step ahead by detecting new and future threats.”
