About mnemonic

Mnemonics’s Managed Detect & Response service, Argus, is the expert in the field of security. Through the Argus platform, machine learning and big data analytics are used to qualify events. The number of events to be investigated can be reduced drastically. After this initial filtering, they are manually analyzed by mnemonic’s security analysts.

They enrich the data with additional threat intelligence from Argus. A combination of human and automated processing then leaves a manageable number of incidents to be forwarded to your own SOC staff. This way they are only researching security events that really matter for your organization.
