Why Choose eSentire MDR over Red Canary 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 key differences between eSentire MDR and Red Canary MDR:

1

Multi-Signal Visibility and Response

Red Canary MDR services lack comprehensive response capabilities, offering no network response and relying solely on EDR agents for threat blocking. Additionally, Service Level Agreements (SLAs) or Objectives (SLOs) for Red Canary MDR do not state any commitment to response times.

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.

eSentire owns 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.

Best-of-Breed Endpoint Technology Partners

The Red Canary BYO-tech model limits solution options for their customers.

On the other hand, we support 300+ technology integrations. eSentire MDR service integrates seamlessly with the existing tools and SaaS platforms in your environment to enable continuous monitoring across your hybrid footprint, ingestion of high-fidelity data sources, and 24/7 protection from sophisticated known and unknown cyber threats.

3

24/7 Threat Detection and Response

Red Canary MDR services fall short in offering 24/7 service delivery, rapid response time, and advanced threat intelligence that eSentire provides. Additionally, active remediation is only available as an add-on and is not offered 24/7.

As a part of our foundational MDR service, you benefit from 24/7 protection and support from our SOC Cyber Analysts and Elite Threat Hunters who rapidly investigate, contain, and shut down threats when an automated response isn’t possible.

eSentire Threat Response Unit (TRU)

Red Canary does not have the same level of threat hunting experience and threat intelligence resources as the eSentire Threat Response Unit (TRU). TRU is an industry-leading threat research team committed to helping your organization become more resilient. eSentire TRU delivers proactive threat intelligence, monthly threat briefings, original threat research, and regularly updates runbooks, detection rules and machine learning models, enabling you to stay ahead of the most advanced cyber threats.

Services Outside of MDR

Red Canary only offers MDR services, lacking a broader range of cybersecurity solutions. Additional security services can help you gain a better understanding of your threat surface and develop a strategy for enhancing your security posture.

At eSentire, we support your end-to-end risk management with strategic services, threat disruption and incident response offerings. Outside of MDR, our services include Exposure Management Services, and Digital Forensics and Incident Response.

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.
