How to step up your cloud security and compliance

In today’s digital landscape, organisations face increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. Traditional security measures are no longer sufficient to protect sensitive data and prevent breaches. The problem is that many organisations struggle to maximise the benefits of cloud due to security roadblocks (like complexity and resources), and 95.2% also struggle to keep up with compliance obligations.

As digital transformation grows, so does the risk of cyber threats. To protect against these threats, organisations must prioritise security in their digital transformation strategy. It doesn’t need to be a choice between transformation or security; you can transform and stay secure with the following two approaches.  

As a result, many businesses are turning to managed detection and response (MDR) services to enhance their security posture. MDR combines advanced threat detection technologies with expert human analysis to provide real-time threat monitoring, incident response, and remediation. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of implementing MDR and how it can help organisations stay ahead of evolving cyber

What is Managed Detection and Response?

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is comprehensive and advanced protection for your cloud-based software and applications. Your cloud provider secures their product or service. However, it is your responsibility as an organization to protect your data, assets, and customers within your cloud infrastructure.

With Managed Detection and Response, your organisation can quickly detect, analyze, investigate, and respond to threats for protection.  

In the past year, around 39% of UK businesses experienced cyber attacks. This may be because some less experienced organisations did not report them. It is important to review your security measures. MDR is a smart security solution because traditional antivirus is no longer effective against evolving and complex threats.
