MDR: Utilizing AI for Threat Actors and End-Users amidst Shrinking Cyber Teams

At the ESET World summit in Bratislava, channel partners from around the globe gathered to discuss various topics related to cybersecurity. Key discussions during the three-day event focused on emerging trends in threat intelligence, Managed Detection and Response (MDR), the impact of deepfakes and AI-generated ransomware, and ESET’s AI advisor tool. This innovative tool helps translate complex data on risk identification, analysis, and response capabilities into easily understandable insights.

As part of their transition towards subscription or services models, ESET is relying heavily on its channel partners to bring these developments to market. Technical speakers from ESET emphasized the importance of MDR as a crucial line of defense against cybercrime. They also highlighted emerging threats such as deepfakes, state and non-state actors, and the increasing use of AI by cybercriminals to enable ransomware attacks. Cyber insurance was also a key topic at the summit, driving end-user firms to reassess their cybersecurity posture and invest in comprehensive security solutions.

To gain a deeper understanding of the discussions and announcements at the event, CRN spoke with two of ESET’s UK partners, Millgate and Grey Matter.
