Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers. The StreamScan FAQ is the place to look for the answers to cybersecurity questions for small-to-medium business and about StreamScan products and services. Got question that isn’t answered here? Just email us, and we’ll be glad to answer it.

Q: What is an MDR?

A: MDR stands for Managed Detection and Response, a cybersecurity strategy where the client outsources monitoring, detection and response to cyber incidents to a specialized cybersecurity provider. Managed Detection and Response is becoming a more and more popular strategy with small-to-medium businesses because it provides access to expert resources at a fraction of the cost of building an in-house cybersecurity department. StreamScan’s MDR service is specifically designed for SMBs.

Q: What is a CDS?

A: StreamScan’s CDS is an AI-Cyberthreat Detection System that provides 360-degree network monitoring - eliminating the blindspots that regularly occur on SIEM/threat intelligence-based systems. The CDS monitors all devices on your network, including phones, tablets, IoT devices and industrial controllers. Our CDS can detect new generations of malware and identify even zero-day threats - making it the perfect system to protect today’s complex networks.

Q: Is it true that Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a better cybersecurity solution for SMBs than the in-house SOC/SIEM model?

A: Not all MDRs are designed for SMBs. But Streamscan’s MDR is designed and priced specifically for SMBs. To achieve the network coverage levels and response times provided by StreamScam’s MDR, you’d need to hire at minimum three security specialists, license security software, and provide infrastructure. Learn more about MDR vs. threat Intelligence here.

Q: Is StreamScan’s MDR a good cybersecurity choice for manufacturers?

A: We think so! For manufacturers, the cost of cyber intrusion is high. From the theft of IP to facility shutdowns, the risks are simply unacceptable. Typical SOC/SIEM solutions don’t protect your whole network. StreamScan’s MDR monitors all devices, including IoT networks and industrial controllers (even old deprecated systems), looking for indicators of compromise. You can learn more about cybersecurity for manufacturers here.

Q: Are small-to-medium businesses really at risk of being hacked?

A: Short answer is Yes. SMBs are at risk from automated vulnerability hunting robots as multi-nationals, except their defences are usually less advanced. Hackers can also specifically target your company if you (or your partners) have valuable data. Learn more about why hackers target SMBs here.

Q. Do hackers target Canadian Companies?

A. Yes they do. Canadian companies are a choice target because they often present an attractive combination of low cybersecurity investment and high ability to pay. You can learn more about why cybercriminals target Canadian companies in this post on our StreamSanner blog.
