Stop advanced threats and insider threats with managed detection and response services

Arctic Wolf Recognized in 2017 Gartner Market Guide

Gartner published their updated market guide for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services on May 31, 2017. Arctic Wolf Networks has been recognized by Gartner for a second year in a row. New players have entered the MDR market, and they expect this to continue.

Gartner recommends, “Use MDR services when a turnkey service is the goal, and decisions on technologies, expertise and processes are left to the provider.”*


  • Organizations are looking to improve real-time detection and incident response capabilities. However, they often struggle to invest given the limited resources in people, processes and technology.
  • MDR vendors target two primary groups of buyers: 1) small or midsize businesses and small enterprises with minimal investments in security tools/staff; 2) well-invested enterprises that are investing in people and tools, but are looking for partners to augment their capabilities.
  • MDR providers are adding the ability to contain threats to existing remote incident response capabilities, primarily driven by SMB organizations that lack security teams and 24/7 IT.
