Managed Cybersecurity Services

Our Managed Cybersecurity Services not only comprises a Managed Endpoint Detection and Response capability for traditional Windows, Linux and Mac environments, but also importantly covers monitoring and threat protection for cloud applications (SaaS), infrastructure (IaaS), workloads and mobile devices (iOS, Android & ChromeOS).  

We assist organisations gain comprehensive visibility over their infrastructure, ensuring they’re protected from the latest threats and compliant with regulatory frameworks and standards.

Cybersecurity Monitoring 24/7

As an established Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), First Response has extensive security expertise and pragmatic knowledge about how to best support your requirements. We can help provide vendor agnostic advice with investment in new security technologies, through to providing a fully managed (or co-managed) outsource and monitoring of your systems.

First Response’s team of incident responders has a wealth of experience in dealing with complex security incidents, from complex ransomware through to sophisticated corporate espionage. Cybersecurity incidents have always been difficult to deal with, but the last year has seen threat actors moving to a much more commercial model – where targets are carefully researched by experienced threat actors to ensure a high likelihood of attack success and ransom payment. Attacks can cause significant operational disruption and downtime, with core business systems often being taken offline completely.

The NCSC has seen an increase in the scale and impact of ransomware attacks and a new and growing trend to be more targeted and more aggressive than ever before.”
