Protect Your Multi-Cloud Environment With Confidence

24/7 Threat Detection and Investigation

We detect and investigate threats specific to multi-cloud environments leveraging our cloud-native Atlas XDR platform, proprietary MITRE ATT&CK-mapped detectors, and our 24/7 Security Operations Centers (SOCs) staffed with Elite Threat Hunters and experienced Cyber Analysts.

Cloud Security Posture Management

We reduce your risk by improving cloud visibility, tracking assets and monitoring for misconfigurations, policy notifications and security vulnerabilities. Our cloud services optimize your multi-cloud environment and are aligned to industry best practices across AWS, Microsoft and Google Cloud platforms.

How We Help

Cloud environments are incredibly dynamic. Most cloud threats stem from the misconfiguration and unaccounted use of the cloud platform itself. At eSentire, we prioritize the detection of configuration-related threats and suspicious activity on the cloud platforms you’re leveraging, so you can focus on scaling your business operations securely. Our cloud experts have a deep understanding of the refined tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) leveraged by attackers in multi-cloud environments. We deliver MDR for Multi-Cloud environments across AWS, Microsoft and Google to protect your business from cloud-based threats including:

eSentire In Action

24/7 MDR with Azure Sentinel & Azure Active Directory (AD)

The Challenge:

Threat actors commonly try to remove important security controls like multi-factor authentication (MFA) to gain or maintain access to a user account they have targeted.


24/7 SOC Cyber Analysts are alerted via Azure Sentinel whenever MFA requirements are removed and follow a proprietary runbook to streamline the investigation process.


A sudden change in MFA requirements is very unusual and a potential indicator of compromise. With the right context established and the eSentire Atlas XDR platform’s direct integration with Azure AD, our analyst can suspend the credentials of the user who removed the MFA policy, minimizing the risk of any other important security policies being tampered with.

Threat Detection and Investigations in Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

The Challenge:

Cloud infrastructure providers like GCP provide significant geographic regional control on where their data is stored. Threat actors can use this to their advantage as a means of evading detection, by creating cloud instances in unused geographic service regions.


eSentire has a proprietary GCP detector and investigative runbook designed to regularly scan for cloud administrative activity in typically unused GCP regions and our 24/7 SOC Cyber Analysts are alerted if such activity is identified.


Our analysts alert would alert you and confirm if the activity is expected or not. If not, SOC analysts would recommend the user’s credentials be suspended, perform further investigative work to determine if any other malicious admin activities happened, and find the initial intrusion source.
