We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The integration between Cisco AMPs and the Windows servers is most valuable. So, they can also sandbox machines on which they see something suspicious.""Whenever there is a major thing like Exchange vulnerabilities, it scans our Exchange server for indicators of compromise. It then alerts us and points exactly where we need to go to check for ourselves if it is normal or not.""What's valuable about Arctic Wolf AWN CyberSOC is the cost savings it provides for companies that no longer have to hire a bunch of security people and pay for a SIM.""Security protection is the best feature of this product."

More Arctic Wolf Managed Detection and Response Pros →

"The most valuable features of Red Canary MDR are its modeled after the MITRE ATT&CK framework and we can easily automate the containment of the endpoint. Additionally, it is easy to use and we have never had an issue with it.""The valuable features of this solution are it integrates well with different EDR software, such CrowdStrike, and Carbon Black, and the information it provides is helpful."

Cons
"They could probably expand on their integration tools. They can integrate with more security tools.""They focus on detecting administrator-level control compromises. Because they're focusing more on administrator-level compromise, they are less able to see if an individual user has been compromised. It is, admittedly, very difficult because they don't know what normal human behavior is. If a hacker compromises a human account and then acts just like the human, how are you ever going to notice, unless you have some inside knowledge of how the company works? For example, they overlook account lockouts on user accounts, whereas in our own alerting system, we do not. We review every account lockout, and if it is bad, we contact the person, whereas they think of that as noise because they're more focused on the administrator-level compromise.""It can sometimes take up to an hour to get notification of a problem and that's a long time.""I would like to see them build the ability to co-sell an EDR platform, manage an EDR or manage the actual response, potentially from the issues that are coming up from the security risks."

"I would like there to be an on-premise version of this solution for our data centers because of the proliferation of online threats.""There should be an easier way to update agents to new levels in Red Canary MDR. However, it is not a huge issue but it would help."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is more expensive than CrowdStrike, but it also has more features. I don't remember the amount, but I do remember that it was on the higher side. I believe we have five sensors, and the sensors have a yearly cost. We don't have any additional costs, but I know that if we have more features, they will add to the cost."

  • "I have not compared Red Canary to other solutions to know if the price is high or low. However, I have found the price of this solution fair and reasonable, it cost approximately $100 per year, per device. If they could provide the solution for $50 per year, per device, it would be better."
  • "The price of Red Canary MDR is inlined with competitors. The price is reasonable."
