CyCraft, a leading managed detection and response (MDR) provider based in Taiwan, has been identified as a Representative AI Startup in Gartner’s 2021 Market Guide for AI Startups, Greater China.
The Market Guide enables leadership worldwide to make better-informed decisions by providing an in-depth look into key focuses and use cases for AI technology, including natural language technology (NLT), computer vision (CV), machine learning (ML), and AI-enabled hardware, such as AI chips, drones, and autonomous vehicles.
According to Gartner, these 47 representative AI startups offer potential benefits to both China-based and global enterprises.
“Most enterprises do not have the resources or data scientists to build AI models. Meanwhile, large AI solution providers do not want to invest resources to customize models for individual customers, as it does not scale revenue. This provides AI startups opportunities to co-create new AI applications by working with enterprises, gaining business domain insights and relevant data. AI startups can also help clients to continue optimizing their models to support customers with effective AI solutions.”

Earlier this year, CyCraft Technology released their report “Securing Small, Medium, and Large Orgs for the 2020s”. The report went into granular detail on SOC (security operation center) functions, SOC roles and responsibilities, SOC stressors, and how to model effective and efficient SOCs for small, medium, and large enterprises. The report also included research from Gartner on why midsize enterprises should embrace MDR providers.

Research and Markets calculated that “the MDR market generated 893.8 million USD in 2019 and is set to grow at a CGAR of 16.4% and reach 1,907.9 million USD by 2024″.
In their 2020 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services, Gartner estimated that “by 2025, 50% of organizations will be using MDR services for threat monitoring and response functions that offer threat containment capabilities”.
“Due to the complexity, speed, and sophistication of modern business and modern cyber attackers, 100% prevention is impossible, so organizations have turned to a detection and response framework, which they are finding difficult to fully bring to fruition, so they are further seeking solutions despite the proliferation of in-house focused tools and vendors. Many organizations find that turning to MDR (managed detection and response) is the only solution that gets the results they need to fully address modern cyber threats.” — CyCraft, Securing Small, Medium, and Large Orgs for the 2020s, 22 December 2020
CyCraft customers can prevent cyber intrusions from escalating into business-altering incidents.
