About Active Threat Protection
eSentire’s Active Threat Protection service keeps mid-sized organizations safe from constantly evolving cyber attacks that traditional security defenses are unable to detect. eSentire’s service is smarter because it goes far beyond just intrusion prevention (IDS/IPS), and System Information and Event Management (SIEM), by leveraging full-packet capture, signature-based threat intel, behavioral and reputational-based analytics, and attack pattern algorithms to detect both known and unknown cyber threats. It’s more effective because eSentire’s 24X7 Security Operations Center analysts utilize powerful forensic tools to hunt, fully investigate, and respond to real attacks before they can do harm to a company’s network, so executives can stayed focus on managing the business - not cybersecurity.
