The global managed detection and response (MDR) market size was valued at USD 1.56 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 1.89 billion in 2024 to USD 8.59 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 20.8% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a combination of human expertise, deep threat analytics, various endpoints, cloud based environments, and network detection technologies to help businesses lessen the risk and costs associated with cyberattacks and data breaches. MDR services enable 24/7, year-round coverage and expertise for threat identification, forensic investigation, and incident response.

The rapid growth of the MDR market is majorly attributed to the increasing cybersecurity threats, shortage of cybersecurity talent, increased adoption of cloud computing, and proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT). Cyberattacks are rising at a rapid pace across the world. More than 30,000 websites are hacked daily worldwide. In addition, the average number of cyber threats, as well as data breaches, rose by 15.1% in 2021 compared to 2020. Due to all such increasing threats, businesses are investing significantly in robust detection and response services capabilities to identify and respond to cyberattacks. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic also highlighted the necessity for robust MDR capabilities to overcome uncertain business dynamics. To reduce the risks and costs associated with the impact of a cyberattack, companies enhanced their endpoint security measures and invested significantly in cyberattack detection, response, and recovery capabilities.

Key MDR providers are increasingly launching sophisticated MDR services to help organizations reduce the risk of cyberattacks. For instance,

  • In October 2023, IBM launched an MDR service powered by AI. The launch enabled continuous assessment and auto-recommendation of effective detection rules, aiding firms to improve their speed response times and alert quality.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Market Trends

Integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) Aids Market Growth

In the past few years, cyberattacks have skyrocketed due to various factors, including the rapid digital transformation worldwide. In the ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have become crucial for enabling fast identification of potential cyber threats. AI and ML algorithms can analyze vast amounts of data in real time, helping in pattern recognition, process automation, and predictions. Many MDR providers are leveraging the power of AI and ML to offer complete cybersecurity solutions to enterprises that lack specialized AI and ML expertise. For instance,

  • In July 2023, CyberCatch Holdings, Inc., a cybersecurity company offering an AI-enabled platform solution, and Proficio, an MDR services provider, collaborated to deliver an AI-enabled solution for businesses globally. The combined solution aided organizations with continuous compliance, protecting them from cyber threats.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Market Growth Factors

Stringent Regulatory Compliance Requirements to Fuel Market Growth

Governments across the globe are increasingly directing stringent data protection regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to safeguard personally identifiable information from cyberattacks and other security incidents. Non-compliance to these regulations can cause legal penalties and fines and may damage the reputation of organizations. For instance, non-compliance with GDPR can lead to fines of up to 4% of the company’s annual revenue. However, fulfilling such compliance is a demanding task for organizations as industry standards and requirements can overlap.  Hence, to address strict compliance needs, many organizations are opting for MDR services to identify security threats while fulfilling regulatory mandates. MDR services offer real-time, 24/7 threat detection technologies, helping organizations detect and respond to suspicious activities and data breaches on time and meet regulatory compliance. For instance, in November 2023, Vectra AI, Inc., an investigation, hybrid attack detection, and response provider, announced improvements to the Vectra AI Platform by launching Cloud Detection and Response for AWS. The new launch empowered Security Operations Center (SOC) teams with real-time, integrated attack signals for hybrid attacks in cloud, network, and identity domains.


Data Security Concerns Coupled with High Cost May Hinder Market Growth

Organizations often share sensitive information with MDR providers. Hence, data privacy, as well as managed security services, becomes a major concern, limiting market growth. Another major concern is the increasingly intricate and rapidly changing cyber threat landscape. Cybercriminals are employing more sophisticated and new strategies to target organizations. This, in turn, requires continuous advancement of threat detection strategies, vigilant monitoring, and prompt incident response.

Moreover, the high cost, especially for small enterprises, also poses a significant challenge for widespread adoption. The cost of procurement and maintenance of the tools and technologies, as well as the expense of hiring and retaining cybersecurity experts, is significantly high. In today’s highly competitive business environment, organizations that operate on tight budgets may find it challenging to allocate enough resources for implementing 24/7/365 cyber threat monitoring and response service.  

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Market Segmentation Analysis

By Type Analysis

MEDR Segment to Dominate Due to Simplification of Endpoint Management Process

Based on type, the market is divided into Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (MEDR), Managed Network Detection and Response (MNDR), Cloud Detection and Response (CDR), and others. The Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (MEDR) segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. MEDR is typically used for detecting and remediating suspicious activity at various endpoint servers, mobile devices, laptops, desktop PCs, and others. It offers real-time threat detection, monitoring, and responses to malicious activities. It also simplifies the endpoint management process by enabling threat detection and response via one central platform.    

The Cloud Detection and Response (CDR) segment is poised to show the highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to increased cloud adoption and data breach issues. Enterprises are increasingly migrating to cloud environments, augmenting the need for cloud security solutions such as MDR.   

By Deployment Mode Analysis

Cloud-based MDR Segment to Dominate Owing to Better Accessibility

Based on deployment mode, the market is divided into cloud-based MDR and on-premises MDR. The cloud segment is poised to dominate the market during the forecast period owing to its numerous advantages compared to on-premises deployment. Cloud-based MDR enables enterprises to easily adjust their resources to cater to their requirements. Moreover, cloud deployment facilitates accessibility to remote teams in any part of the globe with an active internet connection. In addition, cloud-based MDR can be updated rapidly in an ever-changing cyber threat landscape.

By Enterprise Type Analysis

Large Enterprises Segment to Dominate Due to Growing Spending on Cybersecurity

Based on enterprise type, the market is divided into large enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises. The large enterprises segment is anticipated to account for the largest market share during the forecast period, as large enterprises typically spend more on cybersecurity due to the higher value of their data as well as assets. Stricter compliance requirements also cause large enterprises to increase their cybersecurity budget. This, in turn, augments the managed detection and response market growth.

The small and medium sized enterprises segment is expected to experience rapid growth during the forecast period. The rapid shift to remote as well as hybrid working, accelerated by the pandemic, has raised the cybersecurity stakes significantly for SMEs. Hence, safeguarding the security of remote access and devices has become crucial. For instance, in January 2024, ESET launched ESET MDR, a solution created to address the current cybersecurity challenges faced by small and medium-sized businesses. The launch expanded ESET’s security service offerings with another MDR solution.
