Datamount partners with Securado to offer managed detection & response services

Muscat: A partnership between a leading cloud service provider, Datamount and a leading managed security services provider, Securado has led to the launch of a state-of-the-art cybersecurity solution.

Known as the Adaptive Cloud Security Stack (ACS Stack), this service, coupled with Managed Detection & Response (MDR) capabilities is available across varied domains in the Sultanate.

This one-of-a-kind solution grounded by Artificial Intelligence complements itself with a human element encompassing seasoned cybersecurity experts, working meticulously at their cybersecurity research team, X-Labs.

Adaptive Cloud Security Stack, with its tailored MDR services, delivers a predominant solution by filling in gaps at the in-house Security Operations Centers (SOC), with a turnkey approach of solving threat detection challenges, which usually leaves an enterprise open to risks. The solution provides adequate controls and visibility spanning across cloud infrastructures and on-premise datacenters. With a team of security researchers specialised in threat detection, incident response and proactive threat hunting, X-Labs serve as the backbone of this solution, further strengthening MDR.

AbdulHakeem Amur Al-Muslahi, General Manager, Datamount, highlights that the average time across industries to detect a cybersecurity breach is close to 247 days. X-lab's MDR services typically reduce this exorbitant timeline to just a few hours, thereby minimising the impact of a security event, and assisting in rapid response to mitigate and remediate cybersecurity threats. He adds, ‘this strategic alliance complements Datamount’s cloud offering and accelerates the adoption of cloud-rendered technologies & services.

Directors of Securado, Krishnadas, Manoj and Dhinak evinces that the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service has a very light footprint on the customer network. The combination of human analysts and technology to eliminate false positives, identify real security threats and develop real-time incident reports forms the fundamental uniqueness of this service, allowing customers to completely entrust their platforms into their safe hands.
