Arctic Wolf Enhances Managed Detection and Response Service With Managed Containment

December 20, 2019 GMT

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 20, 2019--

Arctic Wolf Networks, a leading security operations center (SOC)-as-a-service company, today announced the addition of Managed Containment to the Arctic Wolf™ Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service to improve customer resilience through host isolation when indicators of compromise on those systems are detected.

“Businesses are embracing SOC-as-a-service offerings such as threat monitoring and detection, but also want to be able to quickly contain these threats before they spread and do broader damage to the IT environment,” said Brian NeSmith, CEO and co-founder of Arctic Wolf. “This announcement augments our current MDR offering by adding managed containment to isolate threats that could otherwise cause significant loss or system down time.”

According to Gartner, “Perfect prevention of breaches isn’t possible. Security incidents are inevitable. Thus, I&O [infrastructure and operations] leaders responsible for security in midsize enterprises should assume that they have been breached. Part of your security strategy should be to shorten the time to detect and respond to incidents. Another important element of a security strategy is the isolation and containment of compromised systems to limit an attacker’s ability to do damage.” 1

Key features of Managed Containment for the Arctic Wolf MDR service include:


The Arctic Wolf MDR service is available standalone or in conjunction with the Arctic Wolf Managed Risk service. The Managed Containment capability in the Arctic Wolf MDR service is available immediately.
