Selecting the Right MDR Strategy

Binary Defense CEO Bob Meindl Says Finding the Right MDR Partner Is Paramount
Bob Meindl, chief executive officer, Binary Defense

As threats continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, managed detection and response or MDR is becoming an increasingly important component of any organization's cybersecurity strategy and can help organizations overcome a major challenge facing security teams - the skills shortage.

Finding the right partner to handle MDR can help organizations alleviate the burden of managing people, process and technology, said Bob Meindl, CEO of Binary Defense. The company offers a "unique" open XDR solution and "improves" an organization's security posture by "leveraging existing technologies and enabling the best return on investment of those technologies," he said.

"We believe that it's a partnership. It's a journey that we need to walk with you. We need to establish trust right with the organization in order to become an extension of your team," Meindl said.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Meindl also discusses:

  • How MDR differs from a managed security service provider or MSSP;
  • How Binary Defense uses threat intelligence to identify adversaries;
  • Where the cybersecurity industry is headed.

Meindl creates a strategic company and business alignment through consistent vision and execution across multiple enterprise technology domains, including cybersecurity, data virtualization, SOA, Hadoop, cloud and big data.
