Wipfli Partners With Paladion For AI-Driven Managed Detection And Response Services

Milwaukee-based Wipfli LLP (FY18 net revenue of $317.9 million) has announced that it has partnered with Paladion, a global provider of cybersecurity and managed detection and response services.

“Cyber threats continue to increase at an extremely fast pace with no signs of slowing down,” says Jeff Olejnik, PIC of Wipfli’s cybersecurity practice. “Today, it takes U.S. companies an average of 200 days to detect a data breach. Through our partnership with Paladion, we can reduce the response time to minutes.”

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is unlike traditional managed security service providers (MSSPs) who provide alerts from security monitoring. MDR provides more extensive services than threat detection. It is an advanced managed security service that provides threat intelligence, threat hunting, security monitoring, incident analysis and incident response. MDR uses AI and machine learning to investigate threats, contain them and orchestrate responses.

“We developed our AI-driven MDR program to give businesses simplified access to next-generation cybersecurity, and our partnership with Wipfli will bring leading edge AI-driven threat detection and response to Wipfli’s clients,” says Rohit Kumar, who leads strategic partnerships at Paladion.

Wipfli chose Paladion’s MDR for end-to-end threat management that combines AI and automation, the firm says.
