Deloitte has expanded its Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) cybersecurity solution to help support some of the unique challenges for enterprise, cloud and operational technology (OT), by developing two new modules for identity security and mission-critical OT.

MXDR by Deloitte now includes enhanced prevention, detection and response for identity measures. Working closely with the CrowdStrike Falcon platform and CrowdStrike’s Identity Protection modules, the firm has operationalized the ability to prevent, detect and automatically respond to attacks earlier in the kill chain.

Further prevention, detection and response enhancements have also been made with the company’s MXDR OT module. Deloitte has worked with Claroty and CrowdStrike to help leverage their technology integration to provide end-to-end detection and response, vulnerability management, lifecycle visibility and asset tracking for clients’ OT systems, business-critical systems and assets that control, manage and monitor industrial equipment, process, production and operations.

The enhanced solution will be available globally in the coming months. Having launched in 2022, MXDR by Deloitte is a fully managed cybersecurity solution designed to protect an organization’s extended enterprise from internal and external cyber threats.

Emily Mossburg, Deloitte global cyber leader, said: “As the threat landscape continues to change rapidly, we want to offer Deloitte’s existing and future clients access to what we call the ‘next generation’ MXDR, enhancing security for our clients’ most important assets.

“With this MXDR expansion, in collaboration with CrowdStrike and Claroty, Deloitte focuses on helping organizations take a more proactive defensive posture in their cyber programs – whether they choose to do so via the whole platform or use of just a few of our MXDR modules.”

Chris Richter, Deloitte global cyber detect and respond product leader, said: “When MXDR by Deloitte was launched in 2022, it was designed to enable rapid innovation to address a dynamic threat landscape. Deloitte is constantly innovating its cyber offerings to help clients confidently and efficiently adapt to these challenges.

“With the addition of advanced detection and response capabilities for identity and OT, MXDR by Deloitte extends its reach to protect some of the most critical – and targeted – elements within clients’ environments. The enhanced, SaaS-based MXDR by Deloitte platform can help organizations globally via our EU, APAC, US commercial and US FedRAMP-authorized capabilities supported by 24x7x365 security operations centers while driving down their TCO.”
