Kroll Recognized in 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Digital Forensics and Incident Response Retainer Services
New York – Kroll, the leading independent provider of global risk and financial advisory solutions, announced today it has been named a representative vendor in the 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Digital Forensics and Incident Response Retainer Services (subscription required) for the fourth consecutive year. This repeated recognition highlights the continual investment Kroll has made into its incident response services, merging elite digital forensics experts and frontline threat intelligence to handle more than 3,000 incidents every year and make clients more cyber resilient.
The Gartner Market Guide for Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) Retainer Services recognizes that effective DFIR must include end-to-end services that start from preparation and detection and continue to containment, recovery and post-incident remediation. Gartner also highlights quick response times and stringent evidence management as the most important criteria of selection for an incident response provider.
Kroll’s Incident Response and Litigation Support service contains the necessary services to handle a cyber incident’s entire lifecycle. Breach notification and 24x7 incident response guarantees consumers fast responses and efficient deployments of remote and onsite solutions following an incident. Computer forensics, paired with Kroll’s proprietary tool KAPE, collects and processes forensically useful data within minutes while preserving and recovering a consumer’s indispensable data. Customizable reports on key evidence that can mitigate legal losses are available through Cyber Litigation Support. Additionally, more proactive and highly flexible end-to-end services are also available with transparent pricing through the Incident Response Retainer.
Devon Ackerman, Global Head of Incident Response in Kroll’s Cyber Risk business, said: “We are proud that Kroll’s Incident Response and Litigation Support is recognized by Gartner in its DFIR and Retainer Services Market Guide. Our cyber incident analysis, containment, recovery and remediation services are one of our greatest strengths. Further, we work closely with our retainer customers to ensure we tailor fit our breadth of capabilities to their needs. Not only do we manage over 3,000 incidents every year but also our incident response teams have experience from both the legal world and law enforcement.
