ATLANTA ControlScan has made its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Essential managed endpoint security service available to retailers. The new service leverages the ControlScan Cyphon and the CrowdStrike Falcon platforms to deliver endpoint detection, prevention and response capabilities to small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs).

“MDR Essential is our point-of-entry solution for businesses needing to get essential security coverage in place immediately, without breaking the bank,” said Tom Callahan, director of MDR operations for ControlScan.

The CrowdStrike Falcon platform unifies key endpoint security capabilities such as next-generation anti-virus, endpoint detection and response, managed threat hunting, IT hygiene and threat intelligence, all delivered through a single agent. Sunnyvale, Calif.-based CrowdStrike’s cloud-native technology allows retailers to deploy the platform at scale to secure workloads across on-premise, virtualized and cloud-based environments running on a variety of endpoints on or off the network.

“The increasingly complex threat environment has demonstrated that threat actors are not afraid to take aim at organizations of any size. SMBs are particularly susceptible to cyberattacks, given that they often lack the necessary resources to provide the required protection to secure their assets,” said Matthew Polly, vice president of worldwide channels and business development for CrowdStrike. “We are proud to partner with ControlScan to bring the powerful endpoint detection and response of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to the MDR Essential solution. Together, we will fortify the defenses of vulnerable SMBs against devastating attacks so that they may continue to focus on the growth and health of their business.”

Through its partner ecosystem, ControlScan delivers managed endpoint security and other threat detection and response services to hundreds of organizations throughout North America. Atlanta-based ControlScan managed security and compliance solutions help secure IT networks and protect payment card data.
