Expel receives highest possible score in 14 criteria

Expel, the managed detection and response (MDR) provider that’s committed to making security as accessible as the internet, was named a leader in The Forrester WaveTM: Managed Detection and Response, Q1 2021. Forrester, a leading global research and advisory firm, produced the report as a guide for buyers considering MDR providers using a publicly available methodology.

According to the report: “Security leaders looking for innovative startups with experienced founder teams, focused on MDR, that take a collaborative and transparent approach to service delivery, should put Expel at the top of their list.”

Expel received the highest possible scores in 14 criteria, including:

✓ Time to value
✓ Managed detection
✓ Managed response
✓ Collaboration
✓ User interface
✓ Metrics
✓ Automation and orchestration
✓ Threat hunting
✓ XDR collection, correlation and APIs
✓ MITRE ATT&CK Framework mapping and use

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a leader by Forrester,” said Dave Merkel, CEO of Expel. “We started the company nearly five years ago to create space for our customers to focus on what they love – which probably doesn’t include sifting through tons of alerts or chasing down attackers at 4am. It’s especially humbling when customers, partners and analysts alike validate, in our opinion, that we’re doing what we set out to do.”

Expel’s vision is to make great security as accessible as the internet. The company offers a security operations center (SOC) as a service that gives customers 24×7 managed detection and response (MDR) for cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments. Customers get more value out of the security tools they already own because Expel’s “BYO tech” approach has 50+ native integrations with the most commonly used endpoint, network, SIEM tools, cloud services and SaaS applications. Expel connects to customer tech through APIs, which means customers can install and activate the service remotely in a matter of hours so internal teams can focus on the initiatives most important to their business.
