...but what if you cannot afford a fully-staffed cybersecurity team?

According to a recent piece on, fully staffed teams are more confident in their ability to respond to cyberthreats.  I encourage you to read the full article HERE.
But what if you cannot afford a fully-staffed team? That's a big investment:  To have 24/7 detection and response to threats, an organization would need three full-time cybersecurity professionals on the payroll at minimum.  Full salary plus benefits and all the other HR expenses.

ControlScan performs Managed Detection and Response (MDR) for organizations that don’t have the internal bandwidth to keep a vigilant watch over the security events in their IT environment. We employ the right people and the right processes to efficiently supplement your organization’s cybersecurity management efforts.

Our team identifies intrusions as they are happening, so you can extract them from your environment before any damage is done by:

  • Defining, implementing and updating security rules
  • Running targeted threat hunting sequences to trace anomalies
  • Examining alerts to separate true concerns from false positives
  • Addressing and appropriately escalating threats in real-time

What sets us apart?

ControlScan MDR includes monitoring for syslog devices such as Network Devices, POS Systems, etc. But those devices are not counted as an endpoint with licensing. Those systems are integrated into logging during the onboarding process.

Many MDR providers dictate that their response to be a notification to the customer that an event has occurred, with no active further investigation or hands-on remediation of the threat and affected systems. ControlScan provides hands-on true “response”. Our analysts perform extensive investigation and correlation of any event on the customer network and performing the necessary actions in real time to ensure the customer environment remains protected.

Our Cyphon platform will hash known bad viruses and can monitor any new threat.

What is included with ControlScan MDR?

As part of our MDR service, we collect, aggregate and normalize your organization's log data from servers, endpoints, applications and security devices for compliance and infrastructure management. Our expert security analysts monitor and analyze your log events, freeing up your IT resources to focus on growing your business.

The ControlScan Security Operations Center (SOC) captures and compiles data from both physical and digital sources to develop a level of decision support not possible in a standard monitoring environment. This process combines our people, processes, and technology to analyze and act on robust data sets - allowing us to see the whole picture of an enterprise. We keep your business optimized and running no matter what challenges arise.

Our SOC runs 24x7 and is staffed by highly trained SecOps personnel. Located in Hunt Valley, Maryland, the SOC is a secure facility featuring video surveillance, biometric access control, redundant fiber-optic Internet connectivity, and battery and diesel redundant power.
