Deloitte Launches Managed XDR Security Services


Deloitte, which operates a Top 250 MSSP, has launched a suite of Managed eXtended Detection and Response (MXDR) services.

MXDR combines an integrated, unified, composable and modular SaaS-based MDR platform with managed security services, Deloitte said. It is delivered by security operations centers (SOCS) in the United States and globally using FedRAMP-authorized and commercially available capabilities, the company indicated.

How Does Deloitte MXDR Work?

MXDR modules provide analytics for threat detection and response, Deloitte said. These modules include:

  • Cloud security workloads
  • Threat prevention, detection and remediation for endpoints
  • Zero trust identity management
  • Unified log and analytics management

In addition, Deloitte has used the following technology and cybersecurity alliances to operationalize MXDR:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • CrowdStrike
  • Exabeam
  • Google Cloud Chronicle
  • ServiceNow
  • Splunk
  • Zscaler

Also, Deloitte will leverage additional alliances as it develops new MXDR iterations to ensure the suite meets its customers' needs, the company said.

Deloitte Acquisitions Expand Cybersecurity Services

The MXDR announcement comes after Deloitte made several cybersecurity acquisitions in 2021, including:

Roll those deals plus organic development together, and Deloitte provides application security, data and privacy and other cybersecurity solutions. It offers these solutions to global organizations in financial services, government and other industries.

XDR and Managed Security Services: Recent Developments

Meanwhile, the Deloitte MXDR move represents another major land grab in the fast-growing XDR market.  More than nine in 10 organizations were either working on an XDR project or planning an XDR investment by late 2021, according to an ESG Research survey sponsored by security provider Hunters. Amid that market reality, just about every type of security company — endpoint, network and cloud — has been marching toward XDR capabilities.
