NTT Ltd., a world-leading IT infrastructure and services company, today announced the launch of its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) security service to help enterprises achieve business performance objectives through improved cyber resiliency. The cloud-native, analytics-based offering combines human and machine expertise with leading technologies and threat intelligence to reduce mean time to detection and response to cyberattacks.
The MDR service is built on Microsoft Sentinel, Microsoft’s leading next-generation security information and event management (SIEM) platform powered by AI, automation, and threat intelligence. Sentinel enables organizations to collect data at scale across all users, devices, applications and infrastructure, both on-premises and across multi-cloud environments.
Using analytics, machine learning and threat intelligence, the service looks for suspicious activity and minimizes false positives. With built-in orchestration and automation of common tasks, organizations can quickly respond to incidents and isolate threats remotely.
This latest offering represents another step forward in the multi-year Strategic Alliance Agreement (SCA) between NTT and Microsoft, signed in 2020. Since then, the two companies have been cooperating to create advanced solutions in public, private and edge cloud, data and AI , digital and app innovation, the modern workplace, and now, most recently, security.
