Much of the technology is designed and built in house by the WithSecure engineering team specifically to support the managed service or as leveraged products that WithSecure also provides to the wider market.

MDR team comprises several sub teams: the Detection & Response Team (DRT) who uncover adversaries on our client’s networks and contain attacks using their Incident Response skill, the research team who uncover new and emerging offensive and defensive techniques, and the Technical Operations team who maintain and develop the attack detection infrastructure to ensure it remains at the bleeding edge
