Gradient Cyber Delivers the ‘Must Have’ MXDR Solution Capabilities

Effective MXDR must do three things well:

Threat Detection and Response Service

The first capability is the core security function - threat detection and response. No need to look further if this isn’t a core competency.

  • ‘Follow the sun’ staffing model
  • Gradient Cyber SOC and cyber analysts
  • 24-hour surveillance of your IT environment
and Vetting
  • AI front-end analytics for fast data inspection
  • Human-in-the-loop backend inspection for accurate decision-making
Situation Reports (SitReps) Production
  • Incident root cause
  • Contextual analysis findings
  • Recommended or auto-invoked response action(s)
  • Endpoint Active - SitRep and halt processes, quarantine, remediate, rollback, disconnect (agent dependent)
  • Network Active - SitRep and firewall changes
  • SOAR Passive - SitRep and/or trouble ticket generation
Platform and SOC

The second capability is the service enablement foundation - the XDR platform and SOC. Gradient Cyber uses its own platform and SOC (no outsourcing here).

Data Collection
  • Quorum Collect appliances process PCAP and Biflow
  • Embedded NIDS checks for known threats & anomalies
  • Built for speed, durability and efficient data transfer
  • APIs collect endpoint, User, Cloud and SaaS telemetry
Threat Intelligence Integration
  • Monitoring of 100+ threat intelligence feeds
  • OSINT, ISAC, commercial and US Gov sources
  • Baseline - statistical and threshold
  • Advanced - protocol, heuristic, flow
  • AI - unsupervised machine learning
Platform Scalability
  • Except for on-premises data collection / storage, our XDR platform is 100% cloud-based
  • System features, service activations and capacity expansions managed transparently
Compliance and Assurance
  • US-based SOC
  • SOC 2 Type II Compliant
Customer Interaction Management

Third, and perhaps most important is customer interaction management. Our customers love that we keep them informed and in the loop at all times.

Onboarding Process
  • Architecture review, platform and collector install
  • NIST 800-171 or CMMC 2.0 assessment
  • Vulnerability assessment, penetration testing
  • Initial SitRep production
Situation Notification
  • Initial alert analysis by Cyber Analyst (CA) team
  • Escalation threat levels
  • Immediate customer notification as appropriate
Touchpoint Meetings
  • Weekly, monthly or quarterly
  • 24/7 access via telephone, email, chat, Quorum Platform message mailbox, or our IoS/Android mobile app
