Paladion: AI Driven MDR Provider for High Speed Cyber Defense

Rajat Mohanty | CEO & Co - founder | Paladion

Today, the cyber security industry is undergoing a huge shift. Traditional defenses, processes, and security technologies are not holding up against today’s sophisticated cyber threats. The need for better defense has paved the way for a new model that the industry recognizes as Managed Detection and Response or MDR, a service that provides deeper threat detection and rapid incident response.

The Enterprise Security industry is therefore moving away from traditional, purely preventive cyber defense systems to a more proactive approach by adopting a Incident Detection and Response approach. While preventive security technologies will remain and support a more advanced security program, enterprises need more. Paladion delivers AI driven Managed Detection and Response services to help enterprises to create resilient cyber defenses. They are a pioneer in the use of an AI platform that uses 4 different analytics or sources and still remains the only MDR provider to offer such a platform.

Distinctive Strategies for Success

Paladion’s team believes that cyber defense is not a problem that can be solved by just throwing people at it, especially when there is a growing shortage of skilled cyber security resources. So, automation and AI are the ways forward and are already the top priority for Paladion. Their cutting-edge Newton platform which was the result of their past cyber battles is addressing this need. The platform is already validated by leading technology advisories and is recognized for innovation, strategic application, and user-friendliness. They are currently the only large MSSP that is recognized as a mature MDR player with a proprietary AI platform that can take in information from all available sources for comprehensive, effective cyber protection.

Their MDR uniquely integrates these technologies into a single platform, ensuring there are no lags for customers when performing tasks across different products. “We respond to attacks on our customers in minutes – not days.
