IntelliGO Networks Inc., an AI cybersecurity firm, has been recognized in the 2019 Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Services – an analyst publication aiming to help business leaders determine whether MDR is right for them. This is the second year in a row the firm was listed as a representative vendor for its software-as-a-service-based solution for small to medium-sized enterprises.
IntelliGO CEO Khaled Mansour attributes this recognition to several factors.
AI cybersecurity solution is response-focused & includes vuln. MGMT
“Our operation is incredibly response-focused, given the advantages afforded by the proprietary technology we developed. These factors played a pivotal role in our inclusion in the guide; its discussion on choosing a ‘pure-play’ MDR provider validates that,” said Mansour.
“Another factor is the multifaceted nature of our offering, which includes the ‘extras’ of Vulnerability Management and Log Management. Our complementary services, like Incident Response and Virtual CISO, solve problems beyond cybersecurity threats. These features differentiate us within the market because we help organizations mitigate more risk.”
The company notes that 41% of Canadian businesses with >250 employees are impacted by cybersecurity incidents, according to a 2017 Statistics Canada survey. Mansour says there are further technological advancement critical to scaling IntelliGO’s operation to reduce that number.
“Our investments in artificial intelligence and machine learning continue to improve our accuracy and efficiency in combating threats,” he said.
Mansour expects inclusion in the guide to drive further business growth.
“Recognition by experts like Gartner has been key to our expansion on both sides of the border. We just opened a Data Center in Sunnyvale, CA, last May to accommodate the increased influx of data from our American clients. We expect that growth to continue as risk-sensitive leaders turn to Gartner for expert advice, because their recommendations align with the outcomes of our service.”
