New Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) report: protect your business and realize an annual ROI of 254%* with Expel

Considering building your own detection and response function? Discover how Expel could save you time, money, and energy in this report.

Deciding whether to build or buy a security operations center (SOC) is the evergreen question for organizations that are solving business challenges. For example, is outsourcing your detection and response operations worth the cost? Would a fully in-house approach be easier?

The reality is, finding and hiring the right security talent, onboarding and integrating the necessary tech, plus analyzing all that data, will take a year or more. Research shows it costs more than expected, and takes longer to deliver results beyond maintaining the status quo.

“According to ESG research, 34% of IT organizations agree that their biggest security operations challenge is that their cybersecurity team spends most of their time addressing high-priority or emergency issues and not enough time on strategy and process improvement.” – Analyzing the Economic Benefits of Expel’s Managed Detection and Response Services.

Choosing to support your security staff with Expel’s unique MDR approach–including extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities, phishing, threat hunting, and vulnerability prioritization–creates cost savings, enhances protection, and reduces risk.

*”While Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG)’s models are built in good faith upon conservative, credible, and validated assumptions, no single modeled scenario will ever represent every potential environment. The costs and benefits received from using Expel Managed Detection and Response services will depend on the details of an organization’s requirements and practices. ESG recommends that organizations perform their own analysis of available products and consult with their Expel representative to understand and discuss the differences between the solutions through their own proof-of-concept testing.”
