Softcat have partnered with Check Point once again for another Beers for Peers event, this time to focus on Managed Detection and Response.

Providing managed detection and response on your endpoint requires investment in the right tools, but also the teams to analyse, triage and contain incidents. From our experience customers have invested in excellent technology, but haven’t always had the desire or capability to develop their own dedicated security operations function, especially one that operates 24x7.

We have introduced a ‘Managed Detection and Response’ (MDR) service to our cyber services portfolio to enable you to proactively secure your environment, both on premises and in the cloud.

Through the deployment of a single, lightweight agent we protect your assets regardless of location or platform. Our experienced team of analysts use their extensive experience as incident responders to identify malicious and anomalous behaviour in your environment that could indicate compromise. We work quickly to identify, triage, contain and remediate this incident before providing a route cause analysis with advice and guidance to mitigate vulnerabilities in other parts of your organisation.

This webinar will cover its value to security teams and why we are seeing an increasing uptake of MDR in the market. We will also be providing vouchers for attendees so that you can share a virtual beer with us.


  • Check Point and Softcat’s services portfolio.
  • An introduction to MDR and the reason for growing market demand.
  • How Check Point and Softcat can help.
  • MDR in practice – what does it do.
