NTT DATA has launched a managed detection and response service (MDR). The service is first being provided in Japan from this month, and will be gradually rolled out worldwide by the end of March 2024.
With the MDR service, advanced security engineers who have more than 20 years of experience with incident response, as part of the company's CSIRT2 organisation, as well as expertise accumulated through the zero trust security service that NTT DATA provides worldwide, will provide support to client companies.
In an incident, engineers will act on behalf of client companies, executing a set of measures to identify the cause, implement emergency response measures, maximise recovery efforts, and prevent recurrence.
At the same time, to develop talent to handle MDR services, the firm is launching a talent development programme for advanced security engineers, with the aim of expanding the structure from the current level of 100 people to about 500 staff globally by the end of March 2026.
NTT DATA provides services in over 50 countries.
