Trend Micro has announced its managed detection and response (MDR) service is now available for customers in Singapore and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Enterprises today face two compounding challenges when it comes to security. The first challenge is the rise in data breaches and sophisticated attacks, particularly across the region.

The second challenge is that because of the increasingly complex nature of the attacks many organisations do now have the resources to detect unknown threats.

"Many organisations today grapple with endpoint detection and response (EDR), responding to an avalanche of grey alerts, and not having sufficient resources to manage their security operations,” said Dhanya Thakkar, vice president of Asia Pacific at Trend Micro.

"Our MDR offering is designed to tackle all these challenges. The service was released in the US in June this year and we have already received positive feedback from our customers.

"We believe the MDR service will be well-received by our APAC customers as well."

Although not exclusive to Singapore, it is estimated that by 2021 the city-state will be short of 9,700 cyber-security professionals, according to the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore.

From network attacks, targeted attacks, to crypto miners, file-less malware, and remote access tools, attacks are becoming more complex and difficult to detect.

In an effort to address some of these issues, the cyber security sector has come up with the MDR approach that offloads much of the heavy-lifting security work, in particular, threat detection, analysis, and response - to cyber security professionals.

Through the introduction of this service to its APAC customers, Trend Micro researchers and engineers, once they detect a potential threat, will now be able to produce a detailed analysis of the threat and determine its impact on the system on behalf of the enterprise.

Furthermore, a layer of new capabilities will be added across solutions for endpoint, network, and server environments through the MDR service, building on the vendor’s existing ability to automatically detect and respond to unknown threats.

This allows the enterprise to correlate and prioritise contextual threat information from multiple sources and deliver an automated response.

Specifically, this is done through three specific enhancements, namely, AI-augmented identification and correlation of high-risk threats; automated prioritisation of threat information across user endpoints, networks, servers and, orchestration and response automation.
