We performed a comparison between LMNTRIX Active Defense and Sophos Managed Threat Response based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"LMNTRIX gives us fantastic information about the security of our environment. It tells us about possible threats and how to fix any issues."
"The fact that it's constantly hunting, looking for anomalies, and can evict without any intervention is really incredible."
"We have a dedicated technical representative that is very responsive."
"LMNTRIX first validates incidents before alerting us of the activity, so we're not inundated with false positives."
"Automatic alerts from staying current with the threat landscape have helped us stay safe."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is the ability to interact with the firewall and workstations seamlessly to shut down the threats. Additionally, you are able to control the workstations remotely."
"The most valuable feature is threat hunting."
"Sophos MTR will stop the threat as it is happening. Intercept X, which is a part of it, has the ability to roll back, so the attack is undone. And then the advanced edition of MTR lets me handle the threat by talking on the phone. I don't have to deal with it. I don't have to just go through emails back and forth. We don't have to pay extra for Rapid Response services. If something is happening, they're right on top of it."
"It is stable and scalable. It has good technical support."
"The most valuable feature of the Sophos Managed Threat Response is the central management capabilities and monitoring."
"The next release might include a monthly newsletter."
"The portal is still a bit buggy, although it's new and still being refined."
"The dashboard can seem overwhelming at times. It's fairly simple for the end user, and we don't need to do much to make it work, but the dashboard makes it seem a little more complicated than it actually is. There could also be more guidance on how to set up playbooks."
"In the beginning, we were having issues with the LMNTRIX respond agent not playing nice with Cisco AMP."
"The only multifactor authentication that is available is Google Authenticator. I would love to see other multifactor applications added to this list as well as physical devices such as Yubikey."
"Multitenancy features of Sophos Managed Threat Response should be improved. You cannot use the solution for multiple clients."
"One of the limitations that we have found is with communications and the languages in different countries."
"It could be more secure."
"There is room for improvement in performance and upgrades."
"Once in a great while, an update fails."
LMNTRIX has reimagined cybersecurity, turning the tables in favor of the defenders once again. We have cut out the bloat of SIEM, log analysis, false positives and associated alert fatigue and we created new methods for confounding even the most advanced attackers. We combine deep expertise with cutting-edge technology, leading intelligence, and advanced analytics to detect and investigate threats with great speed, accuracy, and focus. We believe that in a time of continuous compromise you need continuous response – not incident response. Our approach turns inward and assumes that you’re already breached and that you’re continually going to be breached, so we take a pro-active, offensive, hunting, adversarial pursuit stance as opposed to a reactive, defensive, legacy stance with analysts staring at a SIEM console wishing they could detect an APT.
LMNTRIX Active Defense is a best in class Managed Detection & Response (MDR) service that detects and responds to advanced threats that bypass perimeter controls. The outcomes we deliver clients are validated breaches that are investigated, contained and remediated. All incidents are aligned to the kill chain and Mitre ATT&CK frameworks and contain detailed investigative actions and recommendations that your organisation follows to protect against the unknown, insider threat and malicious attacker.
We are a partner which becomes an extension of your internal team, can augment your MSSP, or be a full-service SOC as a service security solution.
Active Defense is made up of 3 elements:
LMNTRIX GRID (XDR) – This is our cyber defence SaaS platform that provides a new utility model for enterprise security, delivering pervasive visibility, automated threat detection & prevention, threat hunting, investigation, validation and unlimited forensic exploration on-demand and entirely from the cloud. It is a single investigative platform for insights into threats on enterprise, cloud, hybrid, and industrial control systems (ICS) networks. The LMNTRIX Grid delivers unique advantages over current network security solutions. It is a holistic and multi-vector platform with unlimited retention window of full-fidelity network traffic, innovative security visualizations, and the ease and cost-savings of an on-demand deployment model.
LMNTRIX Technology Stack –This is our powerful proprietary threat detection stack that is deployed onsite, behind existing controls. It’s made up of network sensors, endpoint agents and deceptions everywhere. It combines multiple threat detection systems, with deception everywhere, machine learning, threat intel, correlation, static file analysis, heuristics, and behavior and anomaly detection techniques to find threats in real-time. It decreases alarm fatigue by automatically determining which alerts should be elevated to security events, and reduces false positives by requiring consensus across detection.
LMNTRIX Cyber Defense Centers - While these technologies are without peer, what sets us apart from the pack is our team of cybersecurity professionals who continually monitor our clients environments 24x7 while simultaneously hunting threats internally as well as monitoring developments on the deep and dark web. Our CDC's are a global network of cyber defense centers with highly trained and certified intrusion analysts who provide constant vigilance and on-demand analysis of your networks. Our intrusion analysts monitor your networks and endpoints 24x7, applying the latest intelligence and proprietary methodologies to look for signs of compromise. When a potential compromise is detected, the team performs an in- depth analysis on affected systems to confirm the breach. When data theft or lateral movement is imminent, our automated perimeter containment blocks attackers in their tracks while endpoint containment feature makes immediate reaction possible by quarantining affected hosts, whether they are on or off your corporate network, significantly reducing or eliminating the consequences of a breach.
Threat Notification Isn’t the Solution – It’s a Starting Point
Other managed detection and response (MDR) services simply notify you of attacks or suspicious events. Then it’s up to you to manage things from there.
With Sophos MTR, your organization is backed by an elite team of threat hunters and response experts who take targeted actions on your behalf to neutralize even the most sophisticated threats.
