Why Choose eSentire MDR over Rapid7 MDR

eSentire's cost-effective all-in-one MDR solution combines cutting-edge open XDR technology, unlimited threat hunting and unlimited incident handling, and multi-signal coverage with over 300 technology integrations to support your existing tech stack.

Here are the key differences between eSentire MDR and Rapid7 MDR:

1

Best-of-Breed Endpoint Technology Partners

Rapid7 MDR requires you to select their in-house agents even if your team is already leveraging a 3rd party endpoint provider. This means Rapid7 MDR only provides response capabilities to their in-house endpoint agents and does not cater to alerts from other endpoint detection and response platforms.

eSentire MDR provides you the option to choose from industry leading endpoint technology partners including eSentire Agent, CrowdStrike, Microsoft, and SentinelOne.

2

Multi-Signal Response

While Rapid7 is able to respond to most MDR signals, their MDR solution lacks network response capabilities. This gap leaves your attack surface exposed to network-level threats.

At eSentire, we believe a multi-signal approach is paramount to protecting your complete attack surface. We ingest high-fidelity data sources from endpoint, network, log, cloud, identity, and vulnerability data that enables complete attack surface visibility.

We own the R in MDR by disrupting, isolating, and stopping threats on your behalf across your full attack surface with a Mean Time to Contain of less than 15 minutes. We detect in seconds and contain in minutes, so your business is never disrupted.

The nice thing with eSentire is that they’re always looking at my network, my environment, and everything that’s coming through. I can sleep at night. I don’t need to have a 24/7 SOC. I know that my network is being looked at and if they see something that they deem to be a threat, they can prevent it, or block it and stop it, and get a hold of my team if needed.

We look at eSentire to be the experts. We trust them implicitly. One of the key differentiators I feel about eSentire in their response methodology is they’re with us through the thick and thin till the end so we're comfortable until the issue is resolved.
