We're told this technology "detects attacks often missed by industry-standard cybersecurity solutions and reduces false positives making threat identifications faster".
And, to speed up the response process, the company has "a team of first responders based in Australia and Asia-Pacific" who will "give support to resolving any network and systems breaches".
Founded in 2009 as a digital forensics specialist and now covering 15 countries, Foregenix opened its Australian office in May 2017, and also proudly boasts of being "an official Payment Card Industry forensics investigator".
"Managed Detection and Response services hunt for suspicious behaviour and indicators of compromise (IoC) to detect and contain even the latest, unknown threats.
"Foregenix is one of the few security vendors globally which develop its own detection and response technology and manage it as a service through its own Threat Intelligence Group. With a global team of first responders, including feet on the ground in Asia-Pacific, we’re proud to bring our Managed Detection & Response service to this region."
Raymond Simpson, Foregenix managing director for Asia-Pacific, said he believes the region will attract more cyber criminals over the next few years and added: "Australia and Asia Pacific hasn’t borne the brunt of cyber attacks yet and many companies are not prepared for the challenges ahead.
"The threat landscape is dramatically changing with greater use of credit cards and Fintech solutions in the region, which cyber criminals increasingly target.
"Our MDR service aims to protect businesses whatever the level of cyber security awareness is and prevent them becoming another cyber crime casualty."
