    Hi Joe,

    Appreciate the list.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Feliciano: Thanks for your note and readership. A few folks have asked if/when we plan to update the list. Stay tuned for a 2020 update.

    Jack Poltorak:

    We are currently using Sentinel One for our EDR. Can this be added to the list for review? We have seen this on the Gardner Magic Quadrant and was a major player.

    Christian Rykov:

    Nice list 🙂 Could you please correct the list of european MDR providers – the name is CSIS and not CICS? Thank you 🙂

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Jack: Thanks for the note. SentinelOne is more of a software provider, though we certainly respect the company and know they have momentum with MSSPs, and OEM deals with the likes of SolarWinds MSP. Still, we’ll be sure to watch for Gartner updates as we prepare to potentially revise this list in 2020.

    Love the lists and the work you do. Just sent you an email.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Jake: Thanks for your readership and that email. I appreciate the update on CI Security. Please keep the updates coming.

    Joe:

    Many of my clients use Critical Start as the MDR, and they allow customers to use a variety of EDR solutions including MDATP

    Joe:

    Critical Start as the MDR

    David:

    Can you add Countercept MDR from F-Secure to your list for review?

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi David: We’ll keep Countercept MDR in mind as we continue to cover the market.

    Varun Kohli:

    Joe, great list. There have been a few up and coming players, such as LogicHub, missing in this list. Would be great to include them in the next assessment to compare with others.

    Stealthlabs:

    Joe, an excellent list of MDR service providers!

    Like any outsourced service, managed detection and response service providers allow you to gain a team of experts at a price you can afford. For companies who don’t have the time or resources, this is especially useful. Data and privacy regulations should be respected. Be sure that you choose a provider that is able to meet the compliance requirements you need to observe.

    Sheila Berndt:

    Hi Joe,
    Did the November 2020 update get completed? I’m curious for your thoughts on Blackpoint Security?
    Thanks!
    Sheila

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hey Folks,

    The blog above was originally published in November 2019 with a look at 20 MDR companies that Gartner was tracking. We updated the list in February 2021, based on Gartner’s 2020 MDR market guide plus our market coverage. At that point, the list grew to 40 companies.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Sheila: Thanks for your note and readership. All of MSSP Alert’s coverage of Blackpoint Cyber is here.

    Janki Rathod:

    Hi Joe,

    Is there any possibility to include “Sattrix Information Security” company name in your list of Feb 2021? As we recently applied on Gartner Insights.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Janki: Thanks for your question. We have no near-term plans to make additions to the February 2021 list published above. But we do cover MDR news, research and trends on a nearly daily basis. Please be sure to send us Sattrix business updates & news announcements.

    Separately, we will likely publish a new or revised list after the Gartner 2021 MDR market guide surfaces, though we’ll need some time to compare the report findings to our own editorial coverage.

    Hey Joe,

    Hope you are keeping well.

    Have you looked up Talion – British MSSP which was the CyberSecurity Division within BAE ( third largest defence company in the world).

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Sunil,

    Thanks for your note and readership. I haven’t heard much out of Talion but I look forward to updates. You and the company can email me news, business developments, etc., here: Joe@AfterNines.com.
