Cyberattackers recognize that portfolio companies are easy targets because they are growth-focused and are often secured with lean, less mature cyber operations. Private equity firms also have detailed disclosure requirements to abide by, making it easy for attackers to find these valuable targets.
Sophisticated attackers perform complex reconnaissance on private equity firms and their portfolio companies in order to obtain stolen/hijacked/poorly secured firm documents and harvest key employee credentials. They understand operational details, the names of key employees, and once they are embedded, they can hijack relationships, intercept emails, and even initiate wire transfers to steal millions of dollars.
Adding to the challenge, CIOs at private equity firms are hampered by a lack of visibility into all their portfolio firms as well as a lack of control. Defensive tools across their portfolio companies are almost always inconsistent.
Breaches can and will impact deal execution, deal value, integration, and put reputations and future deals at risk. In fact, the public nature of private equity work paints a target on both the buyer and seller.
eSentire is recognized globally as the Authority in Managed Detection and Response because we hunt, investigate and stop known and unknown cyber threats before they become business disrupting events. We were founded in 2001 to secure the environments of the world’s most targeted industry - financial services. We proudly protect over 100 Private Equity firms and their portfolio companies. With over $6.5T in AUM, we are the most trusted security company that protects private equity portfolio companies at scale.
We have demonstrated success working with private equity firms and their portfolio companies. Through our experience, we’ve developed a leading framework for firms to address the most common concerns and risks security leaders face:
For Private Equity (PE) firms and their portfolio companies, cyber risk is often a secondary concern, looked at more as an IT problem to solve rather than as a business risk that needs to be managed. While PE CIOs have begun to put stronger cyber security practices in place to defend against attackers and private equity firms are better defended than ever, their portfolio companies are finding themselves and their assets in the crosshairs of motivated and well-equipped cybercriminals with increasing frequency.
Attackers know that the portfolio companies are smaller, growth companies with lean cyber security operations that are less mature. Private equity firms themselves have detailed disclosure requirements that make it easy for attackers to find targets. The reality is that once an adversary gains initial access into your environment, preventing business disruption becomes a race against time that requires rapid threat detection and response to occur in a matter of minutes.
At most private equity firms, there is a lack of visibility into the security operations across all their portfolio companies. In addition, portfolio companies have limited knowledge of their cyber risks and an equally limited cybersecurity budget.
In this Private Equity Threat Summit, we invited industry veterans to share their insights on the most impactful cyber threats targeting PE firms and their portfolio companies and how you can strengthen your cybersecurity posture to mitigate your cyber risks and reduce downtime. The threat summit features:
We monitor your attack surface 24/7 to discover intrusion attempts, preventing the pervasive deployment of malware and ransomware.
We detect and contain suspicious activity through remote access tools and stop intrusions before they can deploy malware in critical systems that lead to massive outages throughout your environment.
We provide customized Managed Risk, MDR and Incident Response services that can be packaged and adopted by Private Equity firms’ entire portfolios, driving consistency and measurable cyber KPIs.

We’ve worked with numerous private equity firms for incident response after ransomware attacks on portfolio companies have taken out their backups, encrypted the data on their server environments, taken their businesses offline for days or weeks, and cost them millions of dollars. The following case studies capture the immediate operational and financial impacts ransomware attacks inflicted on these portfolio companies. Beyond that, these attacks also caused indirect damage to the private equity backers due to profitability and investment losses.
