Red Flags That an MSSP Is Overselling Its MDR Services

Checklist for MSSP evaluations

As the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) market grows, buyers must be careful when considering a detection and response solution from a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP).

This helpful checklist will walk you through questions to ask so you can ensure an MSSP isn’t trying to dress up existing offerings without making the necessary investments.

Some example questions you should be asking:

  • Are you able to provide metrics showing continuous improvements in analysis time?
  • What types of threats are you unable to detect?
  • What is your customer reported false positive rate? False negative rate?
