Overland Park, KS (JUNE 26, 2017) – UnitedLex , a global, full-service provider of technology-powered business, legal and cybersecurity services, today announced that it was included in Gartner’s May 2017 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, which was published in May. The guide compares and contrasts the benefits between MDRs and other types of managed security services, and provides market analysis and recommendations for SMBs and enterprises looking to improve their threat detection, incident response and continuous-monitoring capabilities.

“UnitedLex has been providing cyber risk solutions and counseling to midsize enterprises, Fortune 500 companies, companies and AmLaw 200 law firms since 2013, helping to protect them from the ever-increasing number of cyber threats. We’re extremely proud to be included in Gartner’s 2017 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response services as we believe it validates our technology, people and processes, as well as our effectiveness in detecting, containing and mitigating the business impact of cyber threats,” said Jason Straight, Esq., Chief Privacy Officer and SVP – Cyber Risk Solutions, UnitedLex.

Straight continues, “The need for managed detection and response services is only going to increase as sophisticated cyber attacks continue to defeat traditional security controls. In addition, the unprecedented shortage of qualified, experienced security personnel to handle such attacks is driving demand for expert, real-time, remote and onsite assistance with incident response and forensics.”
