10 Hot Incident Response Companies To Watch In 2021

Originally published by Cybercrime Magazine

Who to call when the cybercriminals get through

If the famous bon mot about death and taxes were to be written today, there would likely have been a third element: cybersecurity attacks.

Breaches are coming thicker and faster than ever, with the FBI recently reporting that it received four times as many cybersecurity complaints per day during 2020 than it did in 2019 — which means that, more than ever, your company needs to have a detailed incident response plan so you’re ready to act when it happens to you.

Unless you have your own army of in-house cybersecurity responders waiting for your call, odds are that you’re going to need an incident response company to have your back. But in today’s broad and deep cybersecurity market, how do you choose the right one?

A recent Forrester Wave report outlined three key capabilities that you should ensure any potential incident response firm can provide. These include immersive training facilities to support real-world breach training; the ability to outsource capabilities as necessary; and the ability to perform mapping of post-breach remediation implementations.

Business maturity (loosely correlated with size) is important in this space, since the effectiveness of any incident response will start with investment in innovative tools but finish based on the availability of experienced professionals who know how to apply them. Most IR providers offer the option of an ongoing retainer, which is often married with proactive security audits and customized planning to ensure the fastest possible response if things go south.

Forensic analysis is an important part of the offering – so much so that Gartner refers to this market sector as digital forensics and incident response (DFIR) services. The explicit addition of forensics as a capability is a reminder that responding to an incident is not only about stopping it – but about learning from the event, so you can put steps in place to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.

eSentire has been featured as one of 10 Hot Incident Response Companies to Watch in 2021 by Cybercrime Magazine.

About eSentire: Promising a four-hour global response from a DFIR team filled with “battle-tested and highly certified” staff — the group is named after Artemis, the Greek goddess of hunting — it’s clear that eSentire approaches incident response on the front foot. Its response is built around an arsenal of forensics and investigation tools that are utilized to shut down the attack quickly, then segue into an end-to-end incident response lifecycle that ferrets out the root causes of the breach to avoid recurrence.
