Secureworks Expands Taegis Portfolio to Boost Customers’ Cyber Resilience

Secureworks, a leader in cyber security, announced the expansion of its Taegis portfolio of extended detection and response solutions with the addition of Taegis NGAV and Taegis ManagedXDR Elite.

Taegis NGAV is a software-as-a-service add-on to Taegis Extended Detection and Response (XDR) and ManagedXDR. Taegis NGAV uses machine learning technology to disrupt endpoint threats, while enhancing investigations in Taegis XDR with prevention context. With Taegis NGAV and ManagedXDR Elite customers get comprehensive prevention, detection and response protection across the attack surface.

Taegis ManagedXDR Elite, Secureworks’ premium MDR service, adds continuous, managed threat hunting tailored to the customer’s environment on top of MDR capabilities of Taegis ManagedXDR. With ManagedXDR Elite, customers partner with a designated Secureworks expert who continuously scours their endpoints, networks, and cloud assets for potentially malicious elements and activity to reduce mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) and respond (MTTR) to stealthy threats.

“Threat actors’ skills and capabilities continue to evolve, and organizations are rightfully concerned about attacks that could bypass their security controls,” said Steve Fulton, chief product officer, Secureworks. “Secureworks’ answer to these concerns is Taegis ManagedXDR Elite, our advanced threat hunting services enabled by Taegis XDR, our purpose-built cloud-native XDR solution. It pairs in-depth coverage of the customer environment with ongoing communication between customer SecOps teams and Secureworks experts, to help detect new or advanced threats that are difficult to detect without human expertise. We provide our customers a suite of options to enable them to tailor threat hunting to their specific environments and ever-changing security objectives.”

The IDC MarketScape noted Secureworks’ leadership in MDR including its vendor inclusivity, broad threat visibility and threat hunting capabilities. The IDC MarketScape also recognized Secureworks for “pairing security software, security services, and professional/consulting services to hybrid and multi-cloud environments” — a growing attack surface for many organizations.
