Megan Eckhardt

VP, Go-To-Market Programs
and Sales Enablement

When I made the decision to leave a 10 year career at a large corporation for a relatively unknown cybersecurity company, it was because I wanted to make a difference. It was quickly evident to me that eSentire was a company that empowered its employees to do just that. To think outside of the box. To lean in to other teams and offer support or insights when you had something to contribute. To test new ideas by failing fast and failing forward. From top down, we rally behind our mission to protect our customers, and to do that effectively it takes an ecosystem of diverse talents and experiences coming together and working towards that common belief. I am proud to work for a customer-centric company where our people are the differentiator.

Personally, I have been empowered to grow my career as an executive in an industry that is predominately male driven. My favourite example of this is when our CEO Kerry Bailey surprised me with a VP promotion, and in turn I surprised him with a pregnancy and 12-month maternity leave. Many women experience the nerves and doubt that come relaying the news of an impending maternity leave but the support I experienced during that time and the reassurance that my personal decision to do what was best for my family would not impact or jeopardize my career progression, was a breath of fresh air. When I returned to work, I was a presented with an opportunity to make an impact on the sales team by building our supporting functions from the ground up, which was both challenging and exciting, ultimately resulting in a new passion for sales development, operations, and enablement.

Lastly, I will say that eSentire has constantly stretched me as an individual contributor, as a leader, and as a person, even when I did not feel confident in my own abilities to get the job done. My leadership never wavered in their support and my team never stopped fighting alongside me. I have been given the chance to accelerate my career and experience multiple lines of business, and feel like a valued member of the leadership team and eSentire family.

Keegan Keplinger

Threat Intelligence Lead,
Threat Response Unit

I arrived at eSentire in 2017 as a data analyst for the threat intelligence team. I was raised academically, as a scientist, largely in the fields of math, physics, and neuroscience. I had no security background when I joined eSentire but I was able to bring a fresh perspective to the team by turning eSentire’s data into comprehensive visualizations that, with the team’s security intuition, told meaningful stories. Those stories brought situational awareness to our security objectives and created marketing content to drive our brand. At the same time, the Threat Intelligence team and the newly formed Advanced Threat Analytics team were honing my own security intuition. As eSentire’s strongest security teams continued to develop my skills and I continued to uncover data anomalies, I eventually began catching – and writing rules to detect – active intrusions. In time, I grew into a threat research role, which my programming and data analytics skills have continued to advance. eSentire is the kind of work environment that will help you advance your skills and prioritize your passions. I have been able to apply my scientific thinking to drive security outcomes forward.

Kathryn Hodge

Chief People Officer

When I was thinking of joining eSentire in 2017, I talked to my family about my decision. My son, who was 12 at the time, looked at the website and watched videos explaining the mission of the company and what we did to protect our customers from cybersecurity threats. Even at a young age, my son understood that working at eSentire would be important to the world, and knowing his mom was in HR, he told me helping a team like ours would really matter and mean something. Smart kid.

Since that time, I have been proud to be part of this amazing story and partner with the team to achieve extraordinary goals. Working alongside our incredibly talented security experts is extremely rewarding work. Our team makes leaps and bounds to deliver on our customer promise which inspires achievement in all of us. The level of collaborative team work, technical expertise and organizational spirit is unmatched. We learn together and aspire to be the very best at what we do. We make it a priority to hone skills and develop people’s talents so the eSentire tradecraft is unrivaled in the industry, making us the authority in MDR. Mentorship and role enrichment are a vital part of our culture and people, at all levels, share their expertise generously. I love eSentire because we are a PEOPLE culture to the core. We are the place to build a meaningful career.

What our employees are saying

What set eSentire apart from the rest of the companies is that they were one of the only pure-play cybersecurity companies in the region, and the only one with a local founder. I moved to Waterloo because I fell in love with the start-up culture, which you can see in all the unique coffee shops and restaurants uptown, and in the many successful tech start-ups. Even though eSentire was headquartered in Cambridge at the time, they embodied that same vibe. You can imagine how excited I was when we moved to Waterloo! I wanted to be part of something big, and I knew back then that eSentire was going to be big."
Jack Fahel
Team Lead, SOC Operations
I come from a scientific background and eSentire has provided a foundation for me to build a security career from while giving me the creative freedom to explore research and reporting topics that impact our client base. When I applied for permanent residency in Canada, eSentire was there to support me with the requirements and paperwork. Another great advantage of eSentire’s work culture is location mobility. I’ve been fortunate to have worked remotely for eSentire while I travelled across Canada, from Waterloo, Ontario to Whitehorse, Yukon."
Keegan Keplinger
Data Visualization Lead, Threat Intel
Our leadership always keeps us up to date with announcements on our corporate goals and roadmap. There’s a lot of change in the cyber space and we are never standing still. I can pause to reflect on everything we have accomplished together as a team and I’m excited about what we are going to achieve next."
Samantha Piotrowski
Sales Enablement Manager
As an eSentire employee, I feel heard. We’re encouraged to give feedback and share ideas because our voices matter. I also love the opportunities for growth at eSentire. I’m grateful to have been promoted 3 times since joining in 2018. As a people leader, I strive to help my team walk a career track they can take pride in."
Deanna Laparan
Senior Manager Sales Development
I loved the company culture aspect of eSentire. After just my first interview in 2015 I could tell this was a place I wanted to work. Coming from a much larger company, I had always felt like just another number, at eSentire I was greeted on my first day by the Founder himself, mister Eldon Sprickerhoff. It is that kind of involvement, the leadership team had and continues to have that makes you feel valued and important, and I think that’s so special."
Kacey Williams
Executive Assistant

When I reflect on my 5 years with eSentire three words spring to mind ‘Exciting’, ’Grateful’ and ‘Proud’. I find it Exciting to work in a company that is expanding so quickly, we are constantly changing and adapting to our customers needs and the Cyber Security Landscape. Challenging the status quo is not only welcome but it is encouraged, I believe this is the reason we are the world leader in MDR! I am Grateful to witness the career development of so many SOC Analysts. Every week, month and year I can see their skill set improve and confidence grow. The icing on the cake is to see them transition into our advanced specialist teams, further growing their career with eSentire. I am very Proud to work in a company that is focused on important topics such as ‘Inclusion’ and ‘Nerodiversity’. We hire candidates based on their abilities and potential, we actively seek out alternative ways of thinking."
