What we replace

(we know you were wondering)

Expel replaces what you’d spend on managed security service providers (MSSPs) and managed detection and response (MDR) providers. We think MSSPs have reached the ceiling of the value they can provide. They’ve beaten their customers into submission and taught them to expect less by taking a transactional, one-size-fits-all approach, managing to their SLA and prioritizing the quantity of alerts over quality of service. MDRs have emerged to fill the gap with specialized services but since they don’t replace MSSPs they’ve just forced customers to buy two different services.
