Kroll Named an MDR “Champion” by Bloor Research

Kroll Responder, Kroll’s managed detection and response solution, amongst the highest ranked cybersecurity providers in latest industry report

New York – Kroll, the leading independent provider of global risk and financial advisory solutions, today announced that Bloor Research, an independent research and analyst firm, has named its flagship managed detection and response (MDR) solution, Kroll Responder, a “Champion” in the sector, the most prestigious accolade in its MDR Market Update.

The Bloor Research MDR Market Update shows a maturing market sector where vendors go beyond endpoint detection and response (EDR) to ingest a variety of telemetry, including cloud services. It also highlighted one of the most important developments in the MDR market: the development of robust incident response capabilities. Bloor Research saw incident response capabilities as a point of differentiation in the market.

Marc Brawner, Global Head of Managed Services in Kroll’s Cyber Risk business, commented: “With Kroll’s deep history in incident response, handling thousands of incidents annually, we naturally bridge the gap between MDR and incident response, and clients trust us to take corrective actions on their behalf. By combining this frontline threat intelligence and robust response capabilities with our technology agnostic approach, we adjust to our clients’ needs and to the latest threats faster than traditional MDR providers, which Bloor Research has recognized.”

Fran Howarth, Practice Leader at Bloor Research, said, “Kroll's robustness of service, especially in the areas of incident response and preparedness, sets it apart from competitors. Powered with frontline threat intelligence and benefitting from many strategic partnerships, the technology-agnostic Kroll Responder is a strong offering in the managed detection and response market. By complementing this with some important acquisitions, Kroll has established itself as a major cybersecurity player.”
