Kroll Responder Named as Overall Leader in The KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Managed Detection and Response Services

New York – Kroll, the leading independent provider of global risk and financial advisory solutions, has been named an "Overall Leader" in the 2023 KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Managed Detection and Response Services for Kroll Responder. This recognition demonstrates the continual investment Kroll has made into Kroll Responder, which benefits from the frontline threat intelligence gathered from thousands of incident response investigations to provide earlier insight into the latest threats, complete response to contain and eradicate incidents, and extended round-the-clock monitoring. 

The 2023 KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Services recognizes that due to increasingly complex hybrid cloud environments, growing attack surfaces and cybersecurity skills shortage, security teams are struggling to keep up with attackers and are often overwhelmed. MDR solutions provide advanced capabilities to help businesses tackle the volume of security alerts, reduce the time it takes for businesses to identify and mitigate cyberattacks, and provide advanced analytics of threats and attacker behavior.

In its report, KuppingerCole identified Overall Leaders based on a combined rating which analyzes the strength of products, market presence and the innovation of vendors. Kroll was named as a product leader, innovation leader and technology leader, highlighting Kroll’s strength as an innovative MDR provider with the most comprehensive offerings in the market.

Marc Brawner, Global Head of Managed Services in Kroll’s Cyber Risk business, said: “As the MDR market matures, many new providers have emerged, making it more difficult for organizations to look beyond hype to select the right partner who has both the experience and depth to deliver a comprehensive and effective solution today as well as tomorrow. As the largest incident response provider in the world, our responders are tested daily by an ever-evolving threat landscape, and we continue to leverage this first-hand experience into our MDR solution. We're proud that KuppingerCole recognized Kroll Responder as an Overall Leader in MDR.”   

This recognition by KuppingerCole closely follows Kroll Responder being named a “Champion” in the Bloor Research MDR Market Update. Download the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass report here.
