Datashield, which was founded in 2009, will now be operating under the brand ADT Cybersecurity. According to ADT, it is the only MDR provider to offer full packet capture and inspection beyond headers and metadata behind the firewall.

ADT customers of the service will also have access to SHIELDVision, “a unified platform for organizing, managing, and collecting cyber intelligence.” SHIELDVision is offered as automating security analyst workflows to close the gap between cyberattack and breach detection time and remediation for customers.

According to market research firms, approximately 20 percent of mid-market and enterprise organizations will be using MDR services by 2020 – up from less than one percent in 2016.

“Our goal is to provide ADT customers with the most comprehensive security solution to protect their business, and in today’s world, this not only means their physical premise, but also their network,” says ADT CEO Timothy J. Whall. “For more than 143 years, ADT has been monitoring physical properties, and Datashield will now allow us to extend that same level of security monitoring to the digital world.”

“The standard approach to cybersecurity was not designed to provide rapid response,” says Michael Malone, CEO, Datashield. “This is a landmark opportunity to combine the brand and reach of ADT, with the technology and innovation of Datashield to establish the new standard in the most comprehensive digital protection for mid-market and enterprise businesses.”

ADT Cybersecurity services are available now for the company’s commercial and national account customers.
